I got it from Amazon.com. Ships from them so its guaranteed, arrived very fast. I went with the $25 monthly fee. SPOT you pay $120 up front. Inreach is monthly. They have seasonal plans(If you only play for a few months out of the year) or a basic $10 a month plan where you pay 1.50 per text message. The $25 plan includes 40 text messages and extra texts are .50 cents per. For the amount of riding I do I knew I could use more than 15 texts a month ( the offsetting price)...I have a galaxy note 2 also that pairs with this..If you have a smart phone already then this is the best bet as it comes with really great software to compliment it. If not I found this new model yesterday coming out in early April that appears to be a complete standalone that utilizes the software.http://www.thegpsstore.com/Delorme-inReach-SE.aspx
