Stay in touch with the folks back home from anywhere in the world with the DeLorme inReach, which provides cost-effective communications via 9602 short-burst data messaging and the Iridium Satellite system. For as little at $9.95 per month, users can send text messages and provide friends and family with a detailed track of their progress. The system also includes an SOS feature.
For expanded texting capabilities, inReach can be paired wirelessly with either a DeLorme Earthmate PN60w GPS or an Android phone. The inReach floats and is both IPX7 waterproof and impact resistant, making it well-suited for serious offshore use.
