I've got one that I never use any more. It's maybe 3 years old. Name a price. I can send photos when I get home.

Edit: it's the Gen 3 -- looks like this: rei.com/product/860469/spot…

Where are you headed? I’d strongly recommend an InReach over the Spot.

I've kind of heard that as well. I'm going to be above the treeline and realistically only need the SOS feature and don't care about anything else. It seems like the InReach and Spot have pretty similar SOS coverage. If you have an InReach that you're selling, please message me.

Jonathan, someone already messaged me about a Gen 3, I'll hit you up if that falls through.

Cool, just let me know if you want it.

Yah I'd ditch the spot. I love my inreach. Being able to talk with the rescue party is worth it. I've witnessed this first hand. The subjects we were looking for were giving us condition updates while they were stuck in a snow cave.

Spots are very inferior to the Garmin/DeLorme InReach.

If you have the option go with the Inreach with Messaging capabilities.

I have a full functional inreach device that I am considering selling. I was gifted a (pre-order, so i havent played with it yet) inreach mini recently and will most likely keep it, making the my old model unnecessary. The version I am considering selling does not have a screen (pictured below). this device connects to your cellphone via bluetooth and allows for on-phone navigation and messaging. without connection to phone, you can track, send three pre-programmed messages and send SOS. if you have any interest in this device, PM me.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
