Question POLL: Where Do You Carry/Mount Your SPOT Tracker?

I got one for Christmas, and there seem to be a lot of options re: where to carry/mount the device. Some folks believe it's best carried on one's person, especially in the case of an unplanned get-off. Others have reasons for preferring it mounted to one of several locations on the bike. If you have a SPOT, I'd like to know where you carry/mount it.

I keep mine in my jacket pocket. If I go down and get separated from the bike, I still have access to the spot.

I see a lot of them mounted on the handlebars too.

Not all who wander are lost....

I wouldn't recommend putting it in a map pocket on a tank bag as the batteries will get cooked. You have to make the decision whether you want it on the bike or on your person (in case of an accident separating you from the bike/injury preventing you from getting to it). Mine is on the dash shelf. I guess I'm hoping someone will find me as I do share tracking with others.
