Between that and a Ravelco, it is an 'insurance' cost that is worth the amount to try to prevent loss of a valued asset. YMMV.
I like this option, if for no other reason than it is not dependent on cell phone signals.


One question, how is your annual subscription fee $225? Looking at the Service Plan page, it seems that one year should run you $119.40.

Herb,

What the Spot website doesn't state is that the $119.40 is an introductory rate; the following year the cost goes up. I like the product and the capability, their marketing method not so much.

Gotcha (no pun intended). Thanks for clarifying.

I might have found a reasonable system that has no monthly charges for 2 years, and only costs $119. I need to do further research, but I may get one of these.

Good find - Really like the fact it offers the "starter disable" feature. I'd be interested to hear what you find out.
***also curious what the rates are after 2 years.
