Is the tracking capability of SPOT limited if carried inside a backpack? Should it always be carried on the outside of my gear?

Since SPOT is a satellite-based product it needs to see the sky to operate reliably. Having SPOT in a top pocket where it still faces the sky and is only obstructed by things such as a mesh layer or a thin layer of fabric is fine. This also provides a secure point for SPOT so that you don't lose it. If you choose to use SPOT in this way, please fix the unit so that the antenna (underneath the SPOT logo) is facing outward toward the sky.
