Love/Hate relationship with piezo starters
I absolutely love them when they work. I will pay a few extra dollars for that feature. But for some reason they always die. And then I loathe the equipment they died on. I think the piezo failure ...

Re: Spot II issues?
Its the usual mix of stupidity, lies, FUD, and truth. I see these sort of lame reviews get parroted around on forums every so often. I've used SPOT Gen1,2 and now 3. Started with SPOT in 200...

Re: Gen 3 SPOT is nice

Hanging on the face of a cliff with one arm busted up

Re: Re: Ask me in 50 years when my SVEA 123R needs something

Lots of messages and a good webpage
If your checkin didn't get through for two days, I hope it wasn't because you weren't trying to send lots of messages. A key point with the SPOT usage model is that you need to be leavi...

Optimus/Primus? Svea 123R
