5.0 out of 5 stars The Best!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 8, 2016
Absolutely the best thing I have bought for hiking. For remote observation, post hike route checking or just for peace of mind - I have not seem anything that could beat it. High price - especially when you factor in the GPS subscription fees, but honestly, what price do you put on the kind of backup this give you!

The mapping tools are a bit random (there are three of them) but they all kinda work. I use the phone App mostly and that works really well in a remote observation context.

I can't recommend this highly enough - If you run Scouts, Explorers or DofE groups then this is going to change the way you run hikes and expeditions.

EDIT 2019: I have been using my Spot Gen3's (I have three of them) for several years now and my comments above still stand. Reading some of the other reviews I thought I would contribute to perhaps answer some of the negatives.

Firstly - Spot's Customer Service. Yes - Absolutely abysmal! Terrible in fact. If you want something answered then you're going to have to attack them on all fronts, website, email, social media - shout loud enough and they'll respond. Having said that, the product itself is almost bullet proof and I the years I have been using them I have only had to talk to (or attempt to) customer services twice and both times it was account related, not technical issues. So to some up - You should never need to talk to them as the device just works, but if you do... Good luck!

Second - Poor Tracking. Absolutely NOT an issue. One of the most reliable systems I've ever used. Key thing is a) line of site to the sky. I strap mine to the rucksack strap (see picture) and b) a good internet connection to see the tracks. Now if your doing remote supervision make sure you are somewhere you can get online reliably to see the tracks. One common fault is that people turn the device on and don't press the tracking button. One thing that can happen is that line of site to the satellite if obscured by heavy tree cover or by walking in deep valleys. But with three trackers running multiple events a year for 3-4 years I have never had a tracking problem that wasn't human error or terrain based.
