SPOT device prices- a reminder

Recommended Posts

I've been using BOTH SPOT and InReach for many years. I started with SPOT alone, added InReach and kept both for redundancy.


And it's expensive.

This year, like each one before it, I received an auto-bill my new annual subscription fee : $249
This year, like each before it, I called SPOT, explained that $249 was far too much, and I'd like to disconnect my service.
This year, like each year before, I asked and they matched the previous year's rate of $85.

From $249 to $85.
One phone call.

And you need to negotiate Before renewal date

Nope.

Mine had already cleared at $249 two days ago (I was out riding with some misfits, and couldn't make the call), they issued a credit back to my card.

I recently acquired a satellite messenger thingy.  I went with a newer company called Zoleo.

When researching the different sat services one statement jumped out at me:

"Spot account support is like a used car salesman crossed with a Cox cable customer service rep."

I passed on Spot.
