SOLD I purchased this unit about a year ago for a cross country trip. It worked perfectly and was a very useful tool. It will be many years before I can pull off another trip like that and I no longer need this device. It was only used for the one trip which lasted about 10 days. It is in great condition.
Advantages the inReach is supposed to have over Spot is superior satellite coverage, confirmation of messages being sent and received and there just seem to be fewer problems with these units. This unit is made to pair with iPod, iPhone, iPad and Android. It will not work with Windows phones. You can use it as a stand alone devicoe or pair it to a moblie device for added usability.
I'm asking $125 for this which includes shipping to the lower 48 states.
