Re: Spot, DeLorme Trackers?

I finally bought an In Reach this past summer for our 26hr overnight across the Gulf of Maine. It both allowed text contact with our float plan shore based friends, but also allowed family to follow our progress on a website that we set a password for, so only they could see.

I thought it was a great tool. I bought an unlimited text plan for $75 and used it to pass the time texting about a half dozen buddies. Seemless integration with my iPhone. Highly recommend.

If and when it allows grib downloads, it will be perfect. Although, I've read that may never happen.
