I am a solo hiker, hunter, and fisherman who needs some insurance against accidents in the wild. I live within half an hour of the national forest, but if I got lost or had a serious accident off the trail, the results could be catastrophic without a GPS locating device.
I've used the SPOT 3 twice this summer and find its periodic reporting of my precise location very satisfactory.
