    Any word on how well this works? I'm looking for a location sharer but Spots are way out of my budget for how little I'll need one. The GTU is far less and appears to fulfill my requirements but there's not much I've heard about them. I need:

    No cell phone to save battery life.
    Location sharing that's easy for the recipient, like texting them a URL.
    cheap otherwise I'd get a Spot.
    Ability to tweak report intervals.
    Don't need any of the rescue features.

    If you can recommend a non Google iPhone app I could try that as well

    If you don't have cell coverage, you have no tracking

    Thanks for the response. Cell network requirement is a showstopper for me.
