    I have looked hi and lo for my SPOT Messenger but looks I am going to have to order a new unit. Has anybody used the SPOT Gen3 compared to the Messenger?

    I just got the three a few months ago. It seems much better, than gen2 or the original. It seems like they actually tested this one before they released it, unlike the gen2. It has more pre defined message buttons and the gps is much more sensitive. It also has an accelerometer and actually only sends position updates when it moves, this feature really conserves batteries. I prefer the gen3 and would recommend it. The service is significantly more expensive than for the gen1 though. The rebate they are offering is a scam. I've been waiting over four months for my rebate check. I called them today and them told me that they're still working on it.
