I've been reading up on the SPOT especially the ones that connect to a smart phone via Bluetooth. Apparently some of the SPOTs allow for the creation of custom messages on the fly. Can anyone using one of these describe how that works? It seems a pretty amazing device overall. Guess the only negative is the $100/year subscription fee. The big benefit, as I see it, is that it continues to function when you are offshore out of cell or WiFi range. However, for coastal cruisers there are probably other less expensive options. Comments?
