Annual subscription to SPOT is $99 basic - I use the tracking aspects as well so about $156 a year.  They have new unit out now which is even better than Gen 1 units.
I use for letting my better half know I am okay but will be late for dinner when I am on the boat in places with no radio or cell contact.

Note of caution - I ALWAYS carry current EPIRB on board - if you do be sure to check your registration with NOAA there have been some recent issues with wrong data in their system.

For me best part of SPOT is it sending my wife an email with location and "I'm Okay" if I wish it to - also can activate tracking so she can see on web where I have been !
