I have had a SPOT 2 device for about three years now.  This device basically lets my friends/family track where I am as well as provides me the ability to send for either emergency or non-emergency help should I need it.

 

Likes:

  • Small, lightweight
  • Battery life
  • Works as advertised

Dislikes

  • Website difficult to use
  • Link to share is too long to remember; I have to use whereamIriding.com for a simpler url to share
  • I have it configured to share status to Facebook but never works
  • Too many dead zones with no coverage to be of use for a round the world trip
  • Expensive annual service charges (~$170)

Tips:

  • Fasten to your body, not your bike in case you get separated
  • Heat in tank bag will drain your battery
  • Try to remember to turn it off when you get where you're going to extend battery life
  • Configure your custom message to something like: "I'm okay but need something like tools/tubes/tires, food/water and/or a 4wd truck to come get me."
  • Make sure your contacts who get the emergency and/or non-emergency message have each other's contact info so they're not duplicating efforts.
