If anyone is thinking about buying a Spot, I saw this ad on Dealnews.com today that may be of interest.
Today only, Amazon.com offers the SPOT Personal GPS Tracker with a free Year of Road-Side Assistance for $99 via coupon code "ROADSIDE". This $50 mail-in rebate cuts it to $49. With free shipping, it's $100 off a year of service and the lowest total price we could find for the device by $50. This waterproof GPS navigator sends and saves your location every 10 minutes and allows contacts to track your progress using Google maps. It can also send coordinates to Emergency Response Centers.
Of note, coupon and service must be activated at SPOT by January 15.
We cannot direct the wind but we can adjust the sails.
