Ooohh, oooh! Can I chime in before nick does?
I used to have the original Spot (not the Connect), but I now use the inReach.
Recently, we talked a lot about the two in these posts.
Personally, I love the inReach because of its two-way messaging, the speed with which it sends messages, and its ability to work both with my iPhone and in standalone mode.
Nick was turned off by its size and the web page interface...all legitimate gripes. It is bigger and clunkier than the Spot. The web site is currently being improved.
The inReach plans are also more expensive, and the hardware is more expensive.
But I still like it better.
