    It says it needs Wifi & a subscription plan. Not sure what the plan cost is but Iíve never been to a field with Wifi, have you?

    Wifi is only needed to track your dog at home - not relevant for Rocketry use - The subscription is between 6 to 9 dollars a month - Unit Costs $65. It does require that the field have coverage from AT&T Wireless.

    Read this link and the response following it for an overview: http://www.rocketryforum.com/showthr...73#post1763873

    I like a system I can keep at home and use when I want to unencumbered by subscription costs but that's just me. Others might agree with me though.

    Anywhere from $84.00 to $120.00 a year whether you use it or not? I doubt any seasonal Midwesterners will bite. Take the money saved by not buying a Dog Whistle
    ($154.00 to $190.00) and invest in a purpose built rocket tracker you can use when you want to, cellphone access not required. Kurt
