inReach Explorer

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a must have item on a backcountry thru hike! GPS satellite communication device with tracking and text messaging capability and SOS. I bought this device at a recent REI Garage sale for a steal! I've been wanting one for a long time and now I own one! I activated it immediately, which was easy to do. There are multiple different plans to choose from. I have loaded more than 50 trails and routes to the device and it is amazing! I'm super excited to have this device for my upcoming JMT thru… Full review

inReach SE

rated 4 of 5 stars It worked when I really needed it in the Sierras (and was a comfort in Mongolia). I bought this device as my "rattlesnake plan." My plan is to always carry it on hikes as my Plan B if I get bitten (or break a leg, etc) too far from the trailhead for cell service and too far for my wife to find her way out (poor sense of direction). I bought it on sale at REI--$50 off plus $50 service credit, so effectively $200. I've used it on numerous day hikes in the SF Bay area and the Sierras and I used it… Full review

inReach SE

rated 4 of 5 stars Updated: Field test was stunning success! (See below) Setup is easy. Signals are very good. Communication is now TWO-WAY! And the Bluetooth connection to your mobile device (with GPS) gives you the best of both worlds! Batteries are now rechargeable (USB or 115v.) and longer lasting (I know, I use to have a PN-60/Spot). I don't know how it could get any better! Now I feel comfortable going out alone. That is, my wife is more comfortable! UPDATE: Field test finally complete! See "***********  UPDATE"… Full review

MapPack Annual Subscription

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the way to get electronic USGS quad topo's for Delorme PN series GPS units for one flat rate for a year. Only useful if you have a Delorme GPS. It is easy to use and activate the subscription by buying the card online or at a store like REI or Amazon, but even better is to subscribe directly using the Delorme Topo NA software. The price is the same no matter where you get it. But if you do find it discounted somewhere please let me know! The maps do tend to be large and as I stated in my… Full review
