Sail-World.com : Pittman Innovation Award winner: InReach SE
Pittman Innovation Award winner: InReach SE


'InReach SE - has done well since its introduction in July 2013'    .

DeLorme's inReach SE is another product which has been honoured with a Pittman Innovation Award in the field of electronics. The Awards annually recognised innovative gear for sailors. The inReach SE (screen edition) is an extraordinarily versatile handheld GPS tracker and global two-way Iridium satellite messenger.

The color screen provides easy access to all functions, including a virtual keyboard on which you can type 160-character messages to friends and family, or to search and rescue personnel you may have alerted via the SOS button.

The device supports Twitter and Facebook posts with map links, and allows you to connect via Bluetooth to your Apple or Android mobile device, where DeLorme's Earthmate app can not only log all your messages and tracks, but display them on worldwide maps and U.S. charts.

The SE can also send GPS data to other charting apps, and its lithium battery, USB charger, and a choice of RAM mounts makes an always-on boat setup easy.

Finally, the DeLorme Explore web portal keeps a complete history of your inReach use and lets you create a custom ShareMap where friends can follow your voyaging and stay in touch.

The product was introduced in June 2013 and has significant success in other awards.
