i have this one and a sat phone, then bring a lap top/smart phone connect via wifi. we will be able to track our riders. this could be $$$, but if we have several to share the cost, it will make it affordable.

i still need to play with it and see how reliable this is.



can also be used in tracking the other support vehicles w/ spot.

maybe some of the high budgeted racers are already using it. anyone knows?
