Beginning in March, Maine-based DeLorme will offer a new contract-free satellite subscription plan for its inReach product line of handheld satellite messengers. The flexible Freedom Plan will allow subscribers to pay for inReach satellite service only when they need it on a monthly basis. In addition, they can suspend service when not in use and still retain access to their data, such as messages and tracks from previous trips, then reactivate the service plan when needed. A minimum 30-day commitment is required.
Introduced last June, DeLorme’s inReach SE is a two-way handheld satellite messenger with a built-in, high-resolution screen. Users can exchange 160-character text messages with any cell number or e-mail address, even when not paired with a smartphone or tablet. It also provides remote GPS tracking and interactive SOS distress alerting over the Iridium satellite network.
The Freedom Plan applies to original inReach products as well as the second-generation inReach SE. For more, visit www.delorme.com.
