Product Description

Product Description

The DeLorme inReach for Earthmate PN-60w GPS is a one-of-a-kind communication lifeline that always keeps you inReach with exclusive two-way text messaging, delivery confirmation, and interactive SOS, plus remote tracking. It provides guaranteed 2-way satellite communication in remote or high-risk environments, anywhere in the world. Stay in touch with home, office, or colleagues in the field, and get help if you need it, in all the places where cell phones and one-way satellite messengers can't. The highly versatile inReach does not require any companion hardware. By itself, it can send pre-loaded text messages and SOS alerts (with delivery confirmation), and enable remote tracking, all via pushbutton. When you add a PN-60w GPS, you enable the inReach's exclusive 2-way satellite messaging. With inReach, you can do much more than press an SOS alert. Even in standalone mode, you have the ability to let dispatchers know you're conscious and have received their message. If you've paired your inReach with a PN-60w GPS, you can send descriptive text messages so responders come properly prepared. If your situation changes, you can send updates to the emergency dispatchers. No more "press and pray" You'll never have to wonder if your message was received. The inReach will confirm delivery of any text or SOS messages via flashing LED. It makes no difference whether the messages were sent by a standalone inReach, or an inReach paired with a PN-60w. The inReach is a ruggedized, waterproof communication lifeline for outdoors enthusiasts, expeditioners, or anyone working in remote locations. It's extremely well-suited for military applications and NGOs working in foreign lands, or involved in disaster relief. It is also ideal for on and off-road travel, and small plane and glider aviation. Iridium satellite service is delivered via a subscription plans: Safety Plan - $9.95 per month/Recreation Plan - $24.95 per month /Pro Plan - $49.95 per month

From the Manufacturer

Highlights

Exclusive Two-Way Satellite Messaging in Remote or High-Risk Environments, Anywhere in the World

Stay in touch with home, office, or colleagues in the field, and get help if you need it in all the places where cell phones and one-way satellite messengers can't find a signal.

This one-of-a-kind communication lifeline keeps you always inReach with exclusive two-way text messaging, delivery confirmation, and interactive SOS, plus remote tracking.

Pair the inReach with the Earthmate PN-60w GPS for two-way satellite messaging

Use it by itself or with a DeLorme Earthmate PN-60w GPS

The highly versatile inReach does not require any companion hardware. By itself, it can send pre-loaded text messages and SOS alerts (with delivery confirmation) and enable remote tracking, all via pushbutton. When you add an Earthmate® PN-60w GPS, you enable the inReach's exclusive two-way satellite messaging.

Two-Way Messaging

Pair the inReach with a PN-60w and you can send and receive messages up to 160 characters to and from email contacts, cell phones, and emergency dispatchers. You can also post to Facebook and Twitter.

Message Delivery Confirmation

You'll never have to wonder if your message was received. The inReach will confirm delivery of any text or SOS messages. It makes no difference whether the messages were sent by a standalone inReach or an inReach paired with a PN-60w.

Remote Tracking

Interactive SOS

Remote Tracking

You can designate anyone you choose to follow your travels online. Your latest position and "breadcrumb" trail are displayed, with position updates at user-selected intervals between 10 minutes and four hours.

Remote tracking is overlaid on DeLorme Topo North America maps displayed online.

Interactive SOS

With inReach, you can do much more than press an SOS alert. Even in standalone mode, you have the ability to let dispatchers know you're conscious and have received their message.

If you've paired your inReach with a PN-60w GPS, you can send descriptive text messages so responders come properly prepared. If your situation changes, you can send updates to the emergency dispatchers.

The Ideal "Off The Grid" Solution

Ninety percent of the Earth's surface has no phone service of any kind, and one-way satellite messengers also have coverage gaps.

These "off the grid," often high-risk environments are exactly the kind of place where you need reliable two-way communication, sharing anything from simple "I'm okay" check-in messages to time-sensitive field reports and emergency SOS messages.

With inReach, you can go with confidence wherever your adventures or professional duties take you-always connected, always inReach.

The Delorme PN - 60 with Inreach is an awesome tool for anyone that ends up in areas with no cell signal and Sat phone is the only means of communication. The Inreach works much better then the Spot as far as the response time of the Pings and them getting posted on the DeLorme Map Share page. While the 2 way texting is not like texted with your phone it work awesome when you consider the remote areas that it can be used to stay in touch!!! The Mapping on the PN-60 is awesome!

I bought this a little over one year ago for expeditions in the Canadian wilderness. I needed to use it last week to tell someone to get a train to stop for me. The two-way communicator, which was the entire purpose of my purchase and spending $800 (inReach, PN-60w & subscription), failed. The GPS was showing that I could not send out messages, even though messages were being sent many times. I could not receive messages. Thinking I could not communicate, I tried using one of the pre-programmed messages (similar to a Spot), which confused and worried my friends and family a great deal. I spoke with Delorme about how this unit failed me the only time I have ever needed it, and they basically said that they may not charge me to fix the problem, if I am lucky. They took zero responsibility for the failure of the unit. I feel like I wasted $800 on this product in order to try and avoid situations exactly like the one that this breakdown created - expensive and unnecessary rescues, and worrying my friends and family.

If you need to communicate in the wilderness, I would recommend a satellite phone, as Delorme clearly does not have this product sorted out. Otherwise, a SPOT would cost far less than this, and would be much less likely to break & cause confusion. Or just get an SOS beacon. Any ways, this product costs way too much for it to fail the only time I needed it. Don't spend your money here.

This product uses the Iridium network of satellites which offer global coverage. The ability to compose custom messages and also interface with my PN-60w for real-time two-way messaging makes this the perfect addition to my emergency communications kit.
