Choosing a SEND Device
Primary use: emergency device (GMDSS) or tracking/texting
A Satellite Emergency Notification Device (SEND) is a portable emergency
notification and locating device that uses commercial satellite systems, rather
than the international government-based COSPAS-SARSAT satellite system, to
transmit GPS location-based distress, check-in, and tracking messages. They
add social networking and communication capabilities to emergency beacon
functions. inReach and SPOT are two examples of SEND units. Participants in
activities such as hiking, mountain biking, climbing, boating and flying are typi-
cal users of SEND devices.
Individual features vary, and change with new models being introduced, but
SEND devices generally allow you to:
("I'm OK," for example) to a selected group
of your contacts. inReach also allows custom messages.
Let these family and friends track your location (at user-determined
intervals between 30 seconds and four hours) using Twitter, Google Earth and
other web tools. inReach uses a map portal called MapShare
from your personal contacts
, with your information relayed to the appropriate
agencies worldwide by a private organization (such as the GEOS International
Emergency Response Center)
ally require a subscription. Subscription plans vary in cost and features.
Do you want to receive as well as send messages?
DeLorme inReach offers two-way messaging. Receive replies and discuss your
situation. SPOT allows you to send, but not receive messages. Red or green
blinking lights inform you if your message was attempted. SPOT tries three times
to reach the satellite network (when you're successful, your contacts only re-
ceive the message once).
Do you want the ability to send custom messages?
The SPOT Gen3 Satellite Messenger lets you customize messages on your
computer, and send these pre-programmed messages using the
function. The inReach allows two-way on-the-fly text messaging using its built-
in keyboard (send/receive up to 160 characters) to email addresses or cell
phones. inReach can also be paired with a smartphone to access downloaded
topo maps or NOAA charts.
Geographic coverage: continental and coastal or worldwide?
The inReach device operates using Iridium, with global pole-to-pole coverage
and across all oceans. SPOT uses the Globalstar satellite system. SPOT's con-
tinental/coastal coverage includes virtually all of the continental United States,
Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia, portions of South America, Northern
Africa, and North-Eastern Asia and hundreds or thousands of miles offshore of
these areas. See their coverage map at findmespot.com.

SPOT's Basic Service Plan costs $99.99 per year. Basic Tracking is $49.99 per
year. Enhanced Tracking is $49.99. Extreme Tracking is $149.99 Other services
