More affordable than ever
The price of owning and operating a satellite phone is more affordable that it used to be. But why pay for satellite voice communications when a simple satellite text message will get the job done for a fraction of the price?
That’s right, satellite text devices, such as the inReach 2-way Satellite Communicators by Delorme, make satellite communications more affordable than ever, boasting low prices for both equipment and service plans.
Available in two different models, here are four reasons why the inReach Communicator is a true game-changer for satellite communications in remote areas:
1Reliable and Global:
The inReach operates on the Iridium satellite network, the backbone behind one of the most popular satellite phone brands on the planet. Iridium uses Low-Earth Orbiting Satellites to provide reliable, global coverage that you can access on any inReach service plan, starting at $14.95 per month.
2Compose and Send Satellite Text Messages From Your Smartphone:
Using Bluetooth, pair your inReach Communicator with a smartphone or tablet (iOS and Android) to compose and send text messages from anywhere. Excited? It gets better. You can receive texts as well, which is why the inReach is called a 2-way Satellite Communicator.
3Added Safety with GPS Tracking:
Your inReach service plan gives you access to two web portals, the Explore Web Application (Explore) and Mapshare.
Explore is a great feature for addressing an organization’s lone-worker safety concerns. Supervisors can use Explore to monitor all their organization’s inReach Communicators. They can send/receive messages to and from field personnel, receive location updates, and track them on a web-based map.
Mapshare lets friends and family track your progress and send/receive messages to/from you without being able to access your account settings.
4Interactive S.O.S. and Emergency Dispatch:
Every inReach Communicator has an SOS button. It’s for emergency help only. So while you may be tempted to push it when the snow starts to fly and you forgot your hat…don’t do it—you could face a hefty fine.
When you initiate an SOS, the International Emergency Response Coordination Centre at GEOS is alerted. They notify local response agencies, enable automatic tracking on your inReach Communicator, and establish a two-way communication link. Now you can text directly with Search and Rescue and they can text you back.
“We’re on our way” may be the best text message you ever get.
