FYI SPOT uses the Globalstar sat phone system. Up here people have long preferred the Iridium sat phone system with it's north/south orbiting satellites. DeLorme took the SPOT/SPOT Connect one step further with their inReach
unit which allows 2-way texting using the Iridium system. It's also a monthly service compared to SPOT's yearly fee.
