Anyone using the SPOT connect in the field yet?
I just puchased one yesterday. Have sent a couple of "test" email and text messages with it and it seems to work as advertised. Hopefully going to be a less expensive ($160 for the SPOT and $130 for the yearly service) alternative to a Sat phone. The only down sides I can see is that it wont receive text and email, only sends. And it wont do voice communication. But for staying in touch letting people know where you are and whats going on it looks to be pretty cool. Really wondering if anyone has used it out in the Aluetians, overseas like South Aftrica or South America?
