The DeLorme inReach Explorer keeps you connected to the world no matter where you are. Any type of outdoor enthusiast can appreciate the inReach Explorer as soon as you head out of cell service, whether you're a hiker, hunter, backpacker, backcountry skier, alpinist, or just a casual camper. Its inReach GPS is accurate to plus or minus five meters, and it includes a color coded map with waypoints, accurate elevation readings, current speed, and average moving speed. The inReach Explorer's global connectivity is powered through the Iridium satellite network, and this network allows a lot more than just GPS. Send texts and emails to family and friends so they know you're still safe, and send SOS signals to DeLorme's 247 search and rescue coordination center when you aren't safe. The Iridium satellite network also allows access to MapShare, which drops your location so your friends with their own inReach Explorer can find you. In fact, the inReach Explorer will drop waypoints automatically from ten minutes to four hours so people can follow your same trail. Iridium provides multiple no contract and contract plans to provide the best connectivity for your adventures. Bluetooth compatibility lets you connect the inReach Explorer to most smartphones and tablets. This connectivity helps you plan routes online ahead of time. It also connects you to social media sites so all your friends can follow your every adventure. Its battery can last up to one hundred hours, and you can recharge it via the micro USB port or the solar charger. Its housing resists impacts and stays waterproof in 1 meter of water for thirty minutes.
