What customers say about "Key Specs"
Delorme InReach SE Satellite Tracker
  • It IS a two-way messaging system using the global satellite system. That means you can send and receive messages from anywhere in the world.
  • Works great. I brought it along on a sailing trip and a backpacking trip and it reported my location just like it was supposed to do.
  • I was skeptical that it would be reliable on the Salmon River in Idaho but sure enough it worked nearly every time. Messages would easily send within a minute or two, same with receiving.
  • Worked great and had no problems. Our children was able to see exactly where we were on a map that it sent a link for automatically.
  • The inReach is now my GPS, safety blanket and potential lifeline. I've never had an issue with its operation or Iridium satellite coverage.
Delorme InReach Explorer Satellite Communicator with Built in Navigation
  • This will by no means replace your GPS. It is great as a backup compass and as a raw breadcrumb map that will show you how to roughly get back to where you started.
  • The screen is small, but surprisingly functional. The interface is a perfect balance of features in a very simple layout.
  • Texting communication was great. People were able to use my InReach from the boat to write to anyone they wanted and receive text messages throughout the trip.
  • The messages went through and included my exact location and I was able to have 2-way comms with them the entire time in the event by situation got worse.
  • Just being able to communicate despite being out of cell phone coverage gave me the reassurance that if anything happened I could be rescued.

What customers say about "Map Features"
Delorme InReach SE Satellite Tracker
  • The best part of this is we used this to navigate the trail, we were always on track and could easily see our elevation, direction, waypoints, etc.
  • Can't say enough about it's coverage and ease of use. Wouldn't leave home without it.
  • This has been stated many times before but coverage is global. I have yet to use it outside of North America, but I have had no problems getting coverage even in very remote areas.
  • Paired easily with my Iphone and the map download to the iphone was simple.
  • Established waypoints prior to the trip and downloaded maps that were easily viewed on iphone.
Delorme InReach Explorer Satellite Communicator with Built in Navigation
  • Detailed tracking below 10 minute intervals works very well on the Explore
  • Waypoints, tracking and maps are great especially when tethered to phone. Must download earthmate app.
  • It has great mapping features - I love how it lays your location over the map (which includes trails).
  • The Earthmate App allows downloading maps via wifi before venturing out, obviating the need for a dedicated GPS and associated electronic maps.
  • Delorme provides a great map interface for your contacts that allow them to ping your location in real-time and find it on a detailed map.

  • I could get 2-3 days with 10 minute tracking enable and the device turned off at night.
  • The smartphone Earthmate app gets all it's pertinent info via the Explorer bluetooth connection such as detailed maps and longitude/latitude and much more.
  • Two way text communication and GPS maps paired with my IPhone is awesome.
