The DeLorme inReach is an affordable two-way satellite communication tool, and it is now compatible with Apple's iOS products, as well as Android smartphones and the Earthmate PN-60W GPS receiver. The inReach can also be used as a stand-alone product to keep those traversing the great outdoors safe and in contact with their loved ones.
The inReach's two-way communication allows users to send and receive text messages (up to 160 characters) when well out of cell phone range, as well as a 2-way interactive SOS function for search and rescue operation. Travelers and their families can have peace of mind with the message delivery confirmation and tracking options available, and search and rescue operations can save valuable time by being appropriately prepared for the situation.
Android and Apple users can also download free DeLorme Topo maps of North America for pinpointing current locations. Pairing the inReach with a smartphone or other compatible Bluetooth devices is simple, and the inReach app is available on the Android Market Place and in the Apple App Store, providing an informative and easy to navigate program.
When coupled with an Earthmate PN-60W, the DeLorme inReach is the ideal rugged device for challenging environments. In addition to the DeLorme Topo Maps, PN-60W users will receive a free MapPack subscription, which includes US aerial imagery, USGS and Canada government topographic detail, and NOAA nautical charts.
The powerful pole-to-pole global coverage ensures that wherever life leads, the DeLorme inReach will be there.
