  • Pros: 

    lightweight, simple to use, tons of features, SOS button does not require phone

    Cons: 

    Minor but need a phone ( SOS is it's own button and works without)

    I pre-ordered this device and it just came in the mail. It's amazing! Light years ahead of spot and Inreach. The platform is so smooth and simple. Two way texting works with ease in complete phone dead zones. It weighs almost nothing. I also love the weather update option that provides you with all the basic details you would need to know as part of your plan. The ability to share your location with other device owners makes meeting up in the backcountry or national parks a breeze. This is going to be a turning point for sat devices and might finally be the jumping point to it being an additional option on your phone.

How does this compare to the Garmin satellite messengers?

It's very pricey... the MSRP is $450, plus $15/month for 20 messages. $50/month for unlimited. You have to REALLY need this to warrant that kind of cost.

@ayush_chandra I guess using a service which helps you shop from one place and ship to a country not covered will help as it is a one time purchase.

Is this WiFi or messages via GPS? How does the reliability stack up against say, an EPIRB? Lastly, is it dependent upon the phone app, or can it operate independent of that?
