YARMOUTH, Maine, Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DeLorme, the innovation leader in navigation technology, today announced that its eagerly-awaited inReach™ satellite communicator is now available for purchase at retail and online.
With 90% of the Earth's surface lacking any cell phone service, inReach is the first affordable communication solution for anyone who works, travels or engages in outdoor activities in off the grid environments.
The inReach, which has already won multiple innovation awards, delivers an arsenal of remote communication features previously unavailable in the consumer market, including send-and-receive text messaging, interactive SOS, message delivery confirmation, and true global coverage.The inReach can be used as a standalone messenger to send pre-loaded text messages or to trigger an SOS alert. It can be also paired with either an Android phone or a DeLorme PN-60w handheld GPS to enable two-way personal and SOS messaging. In case of emergency, users can describe their situation so proper resources are deployed, and both user and responders can provide ongoing updates until help arrives. Message delivery confirmation is available with either a solo or paired inReach, along with remote tracking (which allows others to follow the user's travels online), and the ability to post messages to Facebook and Twitter. "By affordably enabling reliable communication literally the world over, inReach dramatically expands what's possible for recreation and professional endeavors in remote or high risk environments," said Jim Skillings, DeLorme vice president for commercial products. Since first announcing the inReach earlier this year, DeLorme has received enthusiastic interest from backpackers, mountaineers, hunters, anglers, sailors, pilots, snowmobilers and other outdoors enthusiasts. Inquiries have also poured in from government agencies and companies that deploy workers in isolated areas of the world. The core communications component of the inReach is the Iridium® 9602 short-burst data (SBD) transceiver. Through it, the DeLorme inReach provides two-way connections through the world's furthest reaching communications network.
