Two-way messaging, interactive SOS, global coverage and Follow-Me/Find-Me Tracking and Location now available to vastly expanded mobile device user base

YARMOUTH, ME – DeLorme, an innovation leader in navigation technology, today announced that its award-winning inReach™ is now compatible with iPhone®, iPad® and iPod® touch. This innovation makes it possible for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to access an array of two-way satellite communications capabilities with the inReach and the DeLorme Earthmate App.

inReach turns an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch into a global two-way satellite communicator for use outside traditional wireless coverage areas.

Users can send and receive messages to and from cell phones, email contacts and other inReach users, anywhere in the world. inReach can also be used to post messages to Facebook and Twitter.

“DeLorme is now extending the unique inReach two-way SOS, personal communication, and tracking capabilities to a far broader universe of users worldwide,” said Mike Heffron, DeLorme CEO. “This underscores our commitment to making affordable two-way satellite communication solutions available to as many people as possible.”

inReach, launched in the fall of 2011, is the first consumer-affordable satellite communicator with two-way SOS and personal text messaging, message delivery confirmation, Follow-Me/Find-Me Tracking and Location, and global coverage. iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users can now benefit from all those capabilities.

inReach is a game-changing communication solution for anyone whose activities take them beyond cell phone range. Compact and lightweight, inReach is dustproof and waterproof, buoyant, and impact-resistant. inReach uses its internal GPS for remote tracking and embedding precise location coordinates in sent messages.

In the event of an emergency, the interactive SOS capability of the inReach provides an automatically triggered remote tracking service. Users can accurately describe their situation so proper resources can be deployed, and both user and responders can provide ongoing updates until help arrives.

Because inReach provides reliable two-way connections through Iridium, the world’s furthest-reaching satellite communications network, it can be used with complete confidence anywhere in the world on land, at sea or in the air.

“This is an excellent example of how Iridium global connectivity, married with partner innovation, simplifies consumer connectivity and provides remote communication from familiar devices to existing Internet consumer communities as well as direct personal communications such as email,” said Matt Desch, CEO of Iridium.

Since late last year, inReach has earned several prestigious awards including: 2012 Backpacker Editors’ Choice, 2012 National Marine Manufacturers Association Innovation Award, 2012 CES Innovations honors, 2011 Popular Science Best of What’s New, and 2011 Gear of the Year awards from both Men’s Journal and National Geographic Adventure.

Suggested retail price for inReach is $249.95, with annual satellite subscriptions beginning at $9.95 per month. Four-month seasonal plans are also available.
