Well, its not what I wanted to hear a couple weeks ago, but I heeded your advice. I bought a GPSMAP 60CSx (used) with some local maps on a Garmin card. I also just bought a Spot Gen3 for the SOS and basic (pre-loaded) texting and trip updates. As much as I wanted to only worry about, and use, one device. Each of these devices will do it's own job better. Thanks for the "NO NO NO," I guess I needed it.
