    I spoke to Customer Support. They have no coverage in India. I suspect that it's not the GPS sat system, but the old pager sats they use to communicate with the Findmespot servers.

    Where did he go, Chanderjeet? I'm headed up into Himachal Pradesh in a couple of weeks. I'll take mine and see if it works.

    Well, the monsoon blocked our trip up to Baralacha-la, but Spot did work from Shimla to Puh and Manali and all places in between.

    I'm planning to go to India this spring. I still have a spot tracker with valid subscription from last year's trip to the stans. I was really wondering if it will work, or if I need to get a Delorme Inreach or similar...Thanks!
