DeLorme’s new inReach SE satellite communicator is quite the device, allowing us to send text messages, tweets and other updates from just about anywhere on the planet. It also allows loved ones to track our movement and gives us the ability to call for help should the need arise. That’s quite a bit of functionality packed into one small gadget.
The video below is a beautifully shot commercial for the device that gives us a sense of how it can be used in the field. It features people doing some of our favorite activities, including mountain biking, rock climbing, backpacking and so on. The video does a compelling job of showing us why having one of these devices on us when we head out into the backcountry is a good idea.
