  1. I am going to be following a hiking family on the Pacific Crest Trail that has SPOT. I like the idea of being able to track them on GPS on the trail and to receive updates from them on Twitter and Facebook. However, one of the most important aspects is the SOS to send emergency help if you were injured. That could be life saving.
