I think there is a raging debate running on this issue somewhere here in advrider. I take the view that the SPOT gets good satellite coverage mounted there, I can see it, and if I do come off so badly that I can't crawl back to my bike, than I am unlikely to be compos mentis
enough to activate one in my pocket anyway.
I guess you could envisage any crash scenario, even one where a bike mounted one would work while a pocket mounted one wouldn't, and vice versa.
