It's sweet. You can track, where a message is sent out every ten minutes, send "OK" messages, and call for help - either to 911 dispatch or to friends and family.
I tracked a trip for 800 miles through Lodore, Deso, Cat, and the Grand and every message got out fine.
It also comes with rescue insurance and works with Google maps.
