NEVER AGAIN WILL I BUY A SPOT UNIT.

I bought this thing for use in an emergency, but if it is unreliable, what's the point...?
I think the Spot Connect has a lot of issues but my Spot I and II units have always been reliable. Maybe you should see if they'll allow you to switch to a different model?
