inReach SE Satellite Communicator in Australia

What is the difference between a satellite phone and the inReach SE satellite communicator?

A satellite phone can make and receive phone calls using the satellite communication network.  Satellite phones are needed because a large part of the world is not covered by standard mobile phone coverage. 

Satellite phones and satellite phone data plans can be expensive and call costs are high.  A satellite communicator is the best solution for those people who do not need to make satellite phone calls.  

These are people who simply want to be able to communicate with their loved ones, receive information such as weather reports etc, and be able to send text messages and post on social media such as Twitter and Facebook.  

A Satellite communicator can also function as a GPS Satellite Tracking Device (such as the inReach SE and the Spot Connect)  but it cannot be used to make or receive satellite phone calls.

Inreach Review

The Delorme’s inReach SE is a satellite communicator with a difference.  It is a sophisticated satellite communicator with added features such as GPS navigation, and able to send GPS coordinates embedded in text messages.  

It also has a dedicated SOS button onboard which when activated will alert GEOS  a Global Emergency Monitoring Service.
