GPS Tracking — Delorm InReach Explorer
Delorme provided the key technology for a world of people watching Jurek’s progress online. You can send text messages and upload GPS data almost anywhere, including far from cell phone service.
The InReach was also an emergency beacon that can send messages via a satellite network if needed.
“The InReach is how people could track my progress across the globe,” he said. “The beauty of that unit is it has a communication feature — you can satellite-text from anywhere to someone’s phone. It’s a beautiful feature for family members, significant others, or friends wanting to find out if you’re going to be late.”
