Anyone using the spot satellite messenger. Wondering if worth the buy. Any other device recommendations for when cell service is not available?

There was a thread about this a while back with discussion. In the forum go to gear, then electronic and gps, then page 2. you will see the spot thread. I still use mine and like it.

Starting to notice them more and more, attached to the top of packs, on the pictures posted on this site.

I've used it; not much personal benefit for the hiker other than peace of mind, but the loved ones loved it.

Got one from Sportsman Warehouse and testing now so far seems to work great but will update after hiking!
