I read about Spot a few years ago but never went to the trouble of really doing the research to make a buy. You just solved my main problem with solo desert riding/long distance touring.

In the past I have had a lot of push back from the one who knows because she didn't want me out of touch.....sounds like a problem solved.

thanks, Mike

Mike,

This is the message that my wife receives via email (also text) when I push the "Just-checking-in" button on the Spot.

You have received this message because mySpot has added you to their SPOT contact list.

This location is just above the twisted wire corral in the pic's.
As I said before it is easy peace of mind for those at home and yourself !
I also use them as reference points for things of interest that I may want to view latter on a map.
