Dont know if anyone asked about this yet but has anyone done their research on the new SPOT locator from Garmin? Looks interesteing for $149 plus $99 subscription. Im curious as to its replacing a epirb or any emergency beacons.

You guys kidding?

Hasnt anyone looked into this unit yet? The basics are its a locator and trail documenting device. Sends emergency 911 via satellite anywhere across land or sea. Locks into your position via satellite gps and then leaves tracks that upon emergency will be transmitted to monitoring service for positive location.
cost Unit $149
Satellite service $99
monitoring service $49
total $297

Good alternative to a epirb however this is manual. Im still looking for input as im replacing my ACR 406. cmon gang any comments?
