When you’re deep in adventure territory you can’t rely on standard communications like wifi networks or mobile phone signals. Delorme’s inReach devices are the only satellite communications device offering two-way SMS texting capability.
The Explorer model adds navigation, allowing you to create waypoints, log your trip route, and find your way back. You can also trigger an interactive SOS in case of emergency, plan, track and share your journey, and pair the inReach with your smartphone via bluetooth to enhance usability and access topographic maps and U.S. NOAA charts. You can do all of this from one rugged handheld device with 100% global coverage from Iridium.
It will get you anywhere you want to go. Even better, it will get you back.
