Went to the De Lorme store in Yarmouth today. SPOT has been thrown out in favor of the new Iridium based InReach Satellite communicator.
Dont know how that affects warranty of the PN60-SPOT alliance.
InReach works by itself or with the PN60 or with Android phones.http://www.delorme.com//about/pressreleases/inreach.htm
There is a reason that the PN60 SPOT is on sale.
I read about the InReach a couple of weeks ago. Almost looks to me like Delorme took advantage of their brief marriage to SPOT, and developed their own system with 2-way communication, which is far superior to SPOT. I assume that if it has not already happened, a Delorme-SPOT divorce is imminent. If SPOT wants to stay competitive, they are going to have to take fast action and implement 2-way communication.
