No contract for DeLorme service

Maine-based DeLorme has introduced a contract-free subscription plan for its line of inReach satellite communicators. The new Freedom Plans are designed to make it easier for more people to experience inReach on boats, aircraft or backcountry adventures.

 

 

“The launch of Freedom Plans is in response to feedback from our customers who want to use their inReach devices multiple times per year but not necessarily several months in a row,” said Jim Skillings, vice president of commercial products for DeLorme. “Freedom Plan subscribers can pay for inReach satellite service only when they need it on a monthly basis. Freedom Plan subscribers can suspend their service when not in use and still retain access to their data, such as messages and tracks from previous trips.”

 

 

The company now offers four distinct plans – safety, recreation, expedition and extreme. It has also enhanced several of its plans with expanded options, such as unlimited preset messages for the safety plan and unlimited text messages for the expedition plan.

 

 

The new extreme plan offers unlimited use of all the product’s features, including the ability to have two-minute tracking intervals instead of the standard 10-minute intervals. All four plans are available in the standard annual contract or the new Freedom offerings.

 

 

In addition to sending and receiving 160-character text messages to any cell number or email address anywhere in the world, inReach provides GPS tracking and interactive SOS features, using the Iridium satellite network for 100 percent global coverage.
