I know there is already a thread on the SPOT GPS messenger, but that thread has been dedicated to downloading data to topo maps.

I am looking at getting this device, but the reviews are all 50/50 on this product. I am more concerned about the large number of negative reviews (does not work out of the box, works intermittenly, customer service terrible, and so on....)

Are there many SPOT users on this board? If so, what has your experience been. Is it reliable as an emergency device in the event an unfortuante event occurs?
