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?
No so fast. I've been testing Sat WIFI devices (2 so far in the past month) they are worthless. I'm pretty sure the spot page will not happen. I would test the IRIDIUM hot spot at home before you get your hopes up. This technology is basically text only...Even posting an FB pic is a stretch. Let me know if you find out otherwise
