What do you all prefer, the Sat Phone or a GPS with built-in SPOT Locator Beacon with text messaging capability? I know nothing about the service rates for either and if anyone has either please let me know your thoughts.
SPOT is reliable only when you have clear skies. Both times I have attempted to send messages with crappy weather, overcast skies, messages never sent.
I think they are $10 a day and $1.39 per minute...texting is free!
I will call tomorrow and get exact #'s.
