Whether you find yourself a hundred miles out deep sea fishing, hiking deep into the Alaskan interior, or surrounded by a vast South American jungle, you're always in touch when you have the DeLorme inReach SE Satellite Communicator. Even if you are out of range of cell towers, this handheld satellite communicator enables you to send and receive text messages, track your whereabouts, and send out an SOS in case of an emergency thanks to its Iridium network that provides 100% global coverage and two way communication. This satellite communicator allows you to send and receive 160 character text messages with GPS coordinates to either a cell phone or email, providing peace of mind to your friends and family when you're far beyond the reach of cell towers. Depending on the payment plan you've signed up for, this device tracks your GPS location based on intervals ranging from 2 minutes plus extreme plan for the latest, up to date tracking to 10 minutes plus safety, recreation, and expedition plans. Most importantly, all of the available plans feature unlimited SOS communication, allowing you to freely interact with emergency personnel throughout the entire search and rescue process. Note that the SMS functionality sending texts to cell phones may vary by country GPS tracking and email and SOS messaging works anywhere in the world. Payment plans are grouped into two tiers: annual contracts and freedom plans. Annual contracts are best for anytime explorers who venture into the backcountry year round agreeing to an annual contract lowers your initial account activation fee and monthly fee. Freedom plans allow you to pay for satellite airtime based on a rolling monthly basis, making it ideal for seasonal or occasional use. However, Freedom Plans charge higher annual and monthly fees, but they allow you to suspend service when you don't need it.
