DeLorme InReach GPS Exporer With Two-Way Satellite Communicator
Sometimes, when you’re outdooring far away from civilization, most modern technology hardware becomes as useless as a river stone! Just imagine how your iPhone or iPad would help you out-there in the middle of a mountain with no internet connection or power outlet to charge twice a day! Of course, you can still use it to listen some music, read a book and an article saved via Instapaper or even to get some GPS coordinates, but that’s pretty much it!

Here’s where the dedicated hardware like the DeLorme InReach Explorer series come into the game! The Two-Way DeLorme InReach Satellite Communicator (model ID AG-008727-201) is a complete gadget designed to make your life in wilderness easier. The device comes with various sensors (digital compass, barometric altimeter and accelerometer) on-board which allow you to track trip statistics as well as get useful info about the voyage, color screen GPS navigation with route creation, waypoint and tracks history, is waterproof/dustproof (IP67; standard submersion to 1 meter for 30 minutes) and impact-resistant (Mil-STD-810G for shock) and sports an internal rechargeable battery which allows up to 100 hours of usage in normal conditions.

The Delorme InReach AG-008727-201 can be used to send and receive emails and SMS via the built-in satellite communication chip or can be paired via Bluetooth to iPhone, iPad and most Android devices out-there. A contract-free (minimum 30-day commitment) or annual satellite subscription plan is required for use (plans starting at $11.95 US per month).
