          I am using this to keep my Facebook Page updated on a Mount Kilimanjaro Expedition, it has been amazing to use here in New England in the mountains. There is a small learning curve but it's pretty easy when you get the hang of it!

          Comments about DELORME inReach Explorer GPS:

          I purchased an inReach Explorer so that friends and family could track me while hiking and jeeping in the remote sections of the George Washington & Monongahela National Forests. Here are my notes so far:
          - Adding contacts to the device requires that you manually key them in one at a time. There is no way to do a bulk import or sync contacts. You still have the option of connecting your smartphone to the Explorer and messaging directly from it but that assumes your cell phone has power.
          - The Delorme website where friends and family can track your movement is not optimized for mobile devices. In fact, the website is downright hostile to mobile devices. The font cannot be easily enlarged and the map zoom slider will cause your browser to hang. In short, if you ask a friend to keep an eye on you on their mobile device while you are in the middle of nowhere for a few days it's going to be a challenge.
          - The 'post to Facebook' feature is a great idea but it needs much more development. You cannot post to other pages besides your own or select which groups you want to see your post. For example, if I break down a dozen miles from the closest house I'd like to be able to post up on my jeep club's Facebook page that I need a rescue and not necessarily my own Facebook page.

          I still recommend this device but be aware of its current limitations. Delorme has acknowledged the issues I've pointed out above. Lastly, if you intend to affect a rescue short of using the SOS feature be sure you understand the device's functionality before you go out.
