I have had a SPOT tracker for nearly five years now so it's been pretty clear to me how it works and the value of something like it.  This Trace device from Spot works similarly (location tracked via satellite GPS) but is used more as a vehicle locator/anti-theft device.  I suppose one could use it as a personal tracking device but those are better worn on your body somewhere.  This is meant to be affixed to your vehicle, in my case it's the #xladvproject990!

I was heading down to mainland Mexico on a trip to Copper Canyon and I was thinking something like this could help me get my bike back should it be stolen and quickly enough to get it before it's parted out.


I put together this short unboxing video to show you what comes in the box...



Installation and set up are a breeze.  You control via the settings how often you want it to ping a signal and that in turn will determine how long the lithium batteries last.  I've had it nearly 4 months now and it's always on and still going strong.


I'm sent this email that alerts me when movement is detected and I can go online at any time to find out exactly where it is.

Here's a video of a real motorcycle recovery using the Trace:



I'm pretty proud of myself for where I put the device.  I'll show you but you have to promise not to come to my house and steal it now!

The bottom line for me is this is a huge value given all the time and money I and others have invested in this bike.  I can't imagine what my out of pocket costs would be given my deductible and trying to replace all these goodies I've added to the bike.  I consider it a bargain!
