I leave next month to Guatemala to bring my Hatteras 48' Lrc home to Tampa Bay. We are taking 5 weeks and crusing Belize outer islands and then Mexico and then cross over to Key West and then finally home to Tampa Bay. We want family & friends to track our progress.
If you have to get one of the other which would it be & why?
Spot- does leave bread crumb trail and you can text out - no one can text back so you can't be sure anyone got message (especially if a distress signal)
Spot has a "new" sat phone but doesn't have coverage down in Cental America where we will be...
I am leaning toward the "In Reach" from Delorme due to being able to track our progress on trip (bread crumb trail) plus able to text back and forth with loved ones and get updated weather reports from them on where we are heading.......

Both Spot & Delorme have monthly plans that are very reasonable...
Not sure I want the expense of a Sat Phone plus the air time plans are much more expensive
