It's been a while so I had forgotten that the unit I received was a refurbished one. It came brand new in an orignal box and looked like it had never been used. Because it said refurbished I think that is one reason it was a much better price. A quick Google search turned up a refurbished one for $200 from
Possibly if you search for a refurbished model that might bring the cost down.
Mine is a Globalstar GSP-1600.
I recommend making up a list of phone numbers for the Sheriff Dept's and keeping it with the phone for the area you will be in. In an emergency you don't want to call information first.
