Bought me a Spot 2. When I activate what services should I buy? Discount Code?

So I got tired of waiting around for the Spot 3 and picked me up a Spot 2. I'm just wondering what services I need to purchase when I activate it. Are all of them necessary or are there ones you don't think are worth the price.

Basic service is $99
Tracking service $49
Geos Rescue $18
Spot Assist $18
Spot Replacement $18

Those are all the different services I believe that are available for the Spot 2. So which ones would I need. Riding a FJR so I am on the Road only.

Also anyone know of any current discount codes for the Spot?

I have the Spot 2 also and I like it a lot... My wife even more so (she bought it for me because she worried when I'm riding alone).
I have Basic service $99, Tracking service $49, Geos Rescue $18. The tracking is for my wife to be able to follow along when I'm gone. She sees that I'm still moving and she is reassured. I have Geos Rescue because I take mine on my dirt bike too and I go in the middle of nowhere in the West desert. We also take it when we go backpacking...
I don't have Spot Assist because I have Allstate Roadhelp already and I'm happy with it. I don't need double coverage there.
I don't have Spot replacement because when I shattered my Spot 1, I was happy to replace it with the Spot 2... I figured the day my Spot 2 hit the dirt, it will be time for an upgrade...

Hope this helps you make up your mind. I would say the Basic Service and Tracking are a must. But of course that is if you have somebody at home to watch your progress. Like I said earlier, my wife likes to know I'm still moving and my little girl thinks it's fun to check where daddy is. I also think you need tracking to post your adventure/trip on bike forums or blogs, but I have not use it that way, my wife just logs in to the account.

Sorry, can't help you with the coupons.

Code might be gone

This is the end post of the Spot discount code thread:

Read a ways toward the start. Might be worth trying the codes mentioned as they seem to work one day, then not the next.
Not all who wonder are confused
