+MightyParagon Posted July 13, 2010 Author Share Posted July 13, 2010 (edited) In the Ocala National Forest I get almost no cell coverage. But there are lots of nice caches up there. If something happens, then what? How do I even tell someone where I am at that moment? My phone doesn't work well. Even if I am in any condition to unlock the screen, press the app for 911, how will my broken up message to 911 help me? Even with the tree cover, I have a better chance at pressing one button, having someone understand that I need help at these coordinates, and coming to help--without me having to try to talk. The basic model is $100. That's all I need. That's not much money when we are talking about $200 and $300+ GPSrs. $100 per year? My AAA is more than that, and I don't use that too much either. But when I need it--there is no substitute. I would use it on my bike trips, too, just in case. I am glad I posted this question. The feedback has been great! Thank you.
