    Hi, I'm getting ready to take a week-long trip, and was thinking of getting a SPOT, but I noticed my phone carrier has an option called FamilyWhere, that will track your phone for various reasons. I was wondering why this couldn't function as a SPOT device. My route for this trip appears to have cell service, so in that case would be sending back regular locations of my track, and I believe you can watch it on a map like SPOT. Haven't tried it yet, just wondering how robust it would be. No SOS, etc, but still, momma would be able to see where I've been. I'm not even sure how often the service will upload a track, but it has a free trial so may check it out unless someone has done it already?
