What are you like Dave..? You had us going there mate.
I suppose once you get your unique link ID that's it? ...or is there any way to test it out the day before setting off?
Tracking would be the main reason I'd want to have the SPOT and would be well miffed if the link was duff after shelling out over a hundred quid as I'd probably only use it once in a 12 month period.
Anyway, glad you made it home safe and look forward to your thoughts,
