    SPOT Connect Satellite Communicator is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product is Junk. Total waste of money. I have tried this product for 2 years. First year subscribed to 500 text and because I could not get the app to work only used 10 text. When it does work it takes long time to send. Second year I was told the app was working better but had problems again. Service is terrible and they charge automatically so beware of leaving the credit card info on their site. Spend $300 and it was total waste.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from $150 annual fee, poor service Annual fee is expensive. They add in hidden fees. They force you to use annual automatic credit card renewal which is hard to cancel. Tracking feature uses up batteries within 2 hours.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from There and back This is my second spot device and I have had great success with both units. I do a lot of out doors activities including long distance motorcycle rides. The unit not only buys me peace of mind but allows friends and family to watch ( and monitor ) where I am and where I've been. I've found the few problems I've had with the unit was from me not following the sequence of steps required to get it on line and tracking. Once those were figured out it's been an awesome tool for me. I'd recommend it to anyone wanting that additional peace of mind when you cell phone may not have service.
