This device has been discontinued or we consider it obsolete. While current owners of this device may continue to find performance to be adequate for the foreseeable tech-future, we do not recommend upgrading to or purchasing this device.
Potential Current Option: Garmin purchased DeLorme and has re-released these products with larger screens and more options.
These rugged handheld devices cost $299 for the InReach SE or $399 for the InReach Explorer (with navigation features) and provide continuous remote tracking and support for 160-character, two-way text messages that work essentially anywhere on the planet – with plans ranging between $12 and $99/mo.
If you are headed out on a remote expedition, this would be a great bit of technology to have with you.
