Color: Orange/Black
I use SPOT to send an email to my blog with my current co-ordinates. Then, when I have time and internet access, I update the entries, with text and pictures related to that location. This is an easy way to let people know where I am. And acts as an aide-memoire for me, to tell my story, of the latest trip.

However, things to know about the co-ordinate links generated by SPOT
(1) The link to SPOT is only valid for 30 days. After 30 days, SPOT will delete your message from their system, and there after, your link will fail. So anyone reading your blog say 40 days after the post, will not be able to see your location.
(2) SPOT also provides a Google URL. However, the way the URL is generated by SPOT that requires an EMBED API to use iFrame mode. My blog does not have this API, so again readers will not see my location. Why does SPOT do this? Well their systems have the API, so they are OK.

But there is a workaround. What you have to do is:
(a) create a new link using https://www.google.ca/search?q=latitude,longtitude in numeric format, for example==> https://www.google.ca/search?q=43.7000,-79.4000
(b) delete the links sent by SPOT
Not an ideal solution, but will get your readers to your location for that posting, every time. Even after 30 days. And no matter what blogging solution you are using, and no matter which browser is being used by your readers.

Of course SPOT themselves could change their links, and I did submit a request for a change to the Google URL. But........do not hold your breath based on my conversations with their Help Desk.

As a solution, this will send an email with your current co-ordinates to your blog, from pretty much anywhere in the world, and no need for internet, nor cell-phone coverage.

This was a gift for my boyfriend since he does a lot of survival stuff and does not have any reception. With this product, he can send different messages concerning its location and if he is in need of help. Pretty reassuring!

I have used SPOT II where I did not have easy access to the internet and didn't have cell phone coverage in Kazakhstan. Sent spot messages to multiple people at one time to let them know where I was and was ok.

It works as advertised. I sailed across the Atlantic and back with this as my most important emergency communications device - it was much more important and useful than my EPIRBs or radios. As a bonus, friends can see where you are. If you're an oceanic sailor, buy this device!

The unit sent several messages even through overcast skies on a recent trip into the remote back country. Very impressed!
