SPOT doesn't work in parts of Asia and Africa, or the oceans or poles. Also, the Iridium constellation is much more robust and reliable, and the Extreme can get a message out in conditions where SPOT can't, or at least can't quickly. Plus, the Iridium gives a verification of message sent, unlike SPOT. A side note for SPOT users, standard rescue coverage purchased with SPOT is only good for the Americas and Western Europe, plus Australia. If you get into trouble anywhere else on the planet, you'll need the optional worldwide coverage available through GEOS. As mentioned, the same coverage is available with the Extreme. But that's comparing apples to oranges, since in addition to being a messenger, the Extreme is a fully-enabled voice and data device.
Downsides to the Extreme: It's still clunky and feels like a tough-built 1995 cell phone. To charge it, you don't just plug in a little tip, as you have with every other sat and cell phone ever built. No, you have to install a little appendage to the bottom of the phone, then plug the adapter into that. It's just one more part to lose and break and I really don't understand why they designed it like this. It can't be for waterproofing, since there are other holes on the phone. That's a mistake, in my opinion.
Overall, it's an incremental improvement over the 9555, and for the GPS, ruggedness (plus water-resistance), and slight weight and size gains, I think it's worth the upgrade. (Posted on 2012-09-29)

Iridium 9575 Extreme: First Impression and Specs
The 9575 is not what kids would imagine a phone to look like today. Its appearance and weight is closer to the mid-90s versions of Nokia or Motorola phones. This particular version is dust- and spill-proof (as it is meant to be used outside with direct view to satellites) and covered in a sturdy rubber padding that prevents damage to the phone when it is dropped.
It has a monochrome display (no, it (Posted on 2012-09-29)
