I think all calls are routed via satellite these days so it doesn't matter which phone you choose.

I did the spot thing a while back...could nt justify the steep yearly fee. For some, it works great, but I was not impressed. If I ever feel the need to get back into some sort of safety device like that, a PLB (Personal Locator Beacon) will be the way I will go..

One of the main differences between the two is the Spot is one way communication and the Inreach allows two way communication.

that's what I thought. I'm not so worried about the tracking/rescue functions as I am the communication even in text form, I really don't want to pony up for a sat phone but it would be nice to have the ability to check in and be able to know what is going on at home. I'm about to embark on an epic (for me anyway) adventure. I'll start a new thread about it pretty soon. :thumb

There are satphone rental places on the internet. My father does that when he goes elk hunting.

Also, SPOT makes an appliance that enables your smart phone to send text messages through the satellite network.

I use several Spot traces to keep an eye on trucks and equipment left on remote job sites. If it moves it sends me a message. I can track it every 5 minutes. Spot also make the bigger unit that can do text messages. My brother uses it when he is on his Snowmobile in the Sierras.
