- " Great gps with tons of features. The fact that I can communicate with friends n family with no cell service was a major selling point. Can also suspend service, so not paying a bill for something that isn't being used ".
- " Simple, yet powerful. Full connectivity to your cell for texting makes fpr a great upgrade. Having the screen for full gps usage is definitely a plus compared to the mini. I have 2 in total purchase within a year of difference. That tells you something ".

- Expensive initial purchase,

For those who spend a lot of time in the backcountry or on trips to remote areas, the inReach Explorer+ is a great tool for staying in touch via satellite messaging. It also has fully featured GPS functionality, weather forecasting, and an SOS button. The Explorer+ invented the two-way satellite messaging category and is absolutely still relevant.
