cwyckham - thats a very very good point. Still, think its a good idea, just don't provide updates every 10 minutes!!! Also, you can send SMS like messages with the SPOT, which can resolve nerves. zeezee isn't tekkie with this.
Still fascinated and addictive to keep tabs on friends. I'm loving watching her journey. I am actually more sold on this device now and am considering picking up one. However, can contrap my own system using HAM radio, mail, and Google
Maps. But then again, the SPOT is a cleaner cheaper solution, although it's leveraging GlobalStar
isn't full coverage WW.
One take away: only a few miles offshore
; marooned; no communication. guud point t have some sort of LW/SW radio. I'd setup my HAM radio on the dock
and wire home a voice connection or email
to let people know the details beyond AOK.
