DeLorme inReach vs. Iridium Extreme
Testers review the latest in marine satcom electronics.
There are numerous portable marine electronics that can keep you connected while you get away from it all. But which device offers the most features—tracking, two-way communication, location sharing, etc.—at the best price? And which one can be counted on in an emergency? We began our look at these personal electronics with the January 2013 review of BriarTek’s Cerberus Cerberlink and the SPOT Connect. This month, we evaluate the DeLorme inReach, another pocket-sized, satellite communication option for the cruising sailor, as well as the Iridium Extreme 9575 sat phone, which is capable of providing worldwide voice communication.
