CT4ME Posted April 10, 2013 Report Share Posted April 10, 2013 DeLorme has announced a new GPS/Satellite tracker that may be of interest to aviators out there, and could steal some SPOT customers. The InReach SE (Screen Edition)... $299, uses GPS and the Iridium Satellite network, to track you and allows you to send text messages and post to social sites. Of course, like the SPOT or PLBs, the unit can summon help in case of an emergency. Like SPOT, InReach uses the GEOS Search and Rescue organization. The biggest differences between it and the SPOT: a screen, more reliable Iridium coverage, TXT messages or emails sent/received (& interactive 911), rechargeable battery (100 hrs) and the ability to track all the way down to 1 minute intervals. There is a monthly charge, starting at $9.95 (tracking is extra)... but tracking packages start at $11.95 a month. Special Aviator packages have adjustable tracking intervals, otherwise the unit tracks in 10-minute increments (just like SPOT). Oh, it will also (optionally) connect with your phone or tablet.
