Grant, thanx for the research. My $.02.
Iridium systems such as Inreach cost more but allow 2 way comm and tracking.
The Spot investment is less, has only one way comm but you can program up to 3 messages + the dedicated SOS button. We used a Spot during my recent Mexican 1000 race. It worked flawlessly for tracking and for notifying us when our rider had a mechanical issue. Many racers used Spot devices.
A PLB has no subscription costs but only has one button-SOS and no tracking feature.

The new Garmin Inreach Mini looks really interesting.
