Re: Delorme inreach

The article makes it clear that the DEVICE was not at fault in any way. But the protocol followed by the GEOS folks appears to have been grossly negligent, from a SAR point of view. If there are no "terms of use" or contract considerations, I would suspect a substantial wrongful death action is going to change their protocols if they haven't already.

Let's not forget, government SAR agencies have dropped the ball at times too.
