My new Spot device

I just went on a dirk biking trip to Moab, and just in time for the trip, my new [http://www.findmespot.com/en/ Spot] device arrived. I'm not gonna write a full review here, but so far, I've been incredibly impressed with it. I used it for 3 days straight, in the "tracker" mode where it sends a location message every 10 minutes. I don't think it missed more than one message the whole trip. The cost is not horrible ($150 for basic + unlimited tracking service). Here's an example of what the tracking would look like, this is from our last ride on the Poison Spider trail:
