For our third beta release we talked with Chip Noble of DeLorme about 2-way
messaging in the field without a cellular data connection. We
talked about their inReach both for their Earthmate PN-60w GPSR and for Android devices.
He also shared that Chris Korbulic and Ben Stookesberry of the
Eddie Bauer/First Ascent Kayakers are using the inReach as they
challenge the Zambezi, Kufue, Cunene and Kwanza rivers in
Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Angola. He also mentioned the "global
encounter" where Toby and David use the inReach to provide
tracking to their website.
