The “big brother” of the inReach SE, the inReach Explorer packs even more features and amazing functionalities in such a compact and lightweight unit.  The cost savings between a satellite phone and a satellite communicator are significant.  

Do you really need a satellite phone?  Could you be better off with an inReach Explorer?

It is our experience that many customers that are talked into buying an expensive satellite phone and expensive satellite phone plans would have been much better off with an inexpensive satellite communicator such as the DeLorme inReach.

The inReach Explorer the most advanced satellite communicator in the world

inReach reviews worldwide are acclaiming the Explorer as the perfect satellite communicator.  Take a look at why customers love this product.

The inReach explorer does not make or receive satellite phone calls–but it comes very close providing the 2-way satellite communications most people are likely to ever need.   There are also many more useful features that are usually only found in satellite phone handsets costing thousands.
