DeLorme, a leader in personal satellite messaging, tracking and navigation technology, recently announced a partnership with Pivotel Satellite, a leading provider of mobile satellite services in Australia. As a Delorme service partner, Pivotel will deliver inReach two-way satellite communicator in the region.

Pivotel will provide inReach devices and the DeLorme Explore service portal on local service plans directly to adventurous consumers who go off-the-grid on land, at sea and in the air. Pivotel will also make inReach devices available with TracerTrak, the company’s popular enterprise remote worker safety solution, providing affordable two-way satellite and safety communications for those in important government and enterprise sectors including mining and oil/gas. inReach will also be sold through Pivotel’s extensive network of more than 200 value-added resellers throughout Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia.

Launched in 2011, inReach is the first affordable satellite communicator with vital two-way SOS alerting and personal text messaging, message delivery confirmation and remote GPS Follow-Me/Find-Me tracking and locating capabilities. inReach also interfaces wirelessly with most popular smartphones and tablets. The device is compact, lightweight, waterproof, floatable, and impact-resistant and it can maintain satellite signal lock even in difficult GPS environments.

inReach operates over the Iridium satellite network, providing truly global two-way satellite communications, high network reliability and low-latency data links (less than 60 second delivery of messages end-to-end) anywhere on Earth, even in areas outside of traditional cellular coverage.
