Operating on the East Coast, North Island of New Zealand in a mature pine forest. Disappointed with the coverage. It often wont send tracking info when I'm under the canopy (assume that's because it cant see the satellites). All my other devices can get a fix. Spot doesn't seem to go as well. Works fine out in the open. Am going to line it up against Garmin inreach to see which is better under canopy. Nice surprise was that the message can be customized for "check in", "custom" and "help" buttons. I was only expecting that for the custom button.
