There are several options for communication in remote travel areas away from cell phone service and some of them are very expensive, like the Iridium Satellite Phones. This is an more cheaper alternative for communication and safety when traveling almost anywhere on earth.
The Garmin inreach explorer+ sells for about $450 US dollars and requires a subscription service. Prices vary from country to country and you can select the plan that is right for you and they start at around $30 a month. A small price to pay to save your life or anyone else in an emergency I think.
This unit can text 2 ways, send emails and post to Facebook and twitter and is also a GPS unit.
The built in lithium battery has a long life and the unit is well built and water resistant.
What are your thoughts on these devices?
In the meantime, keep your wheels on the ground!

I have the Explorer that goes everywhere with us. We are full time rv'ers and I have heart issues, so it delivers peace of mind. Mine is actually a Delorme Explorer. The brother in law works for Garmin so we got it for a 50% discount. We got it right in the middle of Garmin buying out Delorme. Were in the US and it works everywhere here, We also have the unlimited text plan that runs about $51 per month here in the states.
We havent had any problems whatsoever. The family follows us on the mapshare page everywhere we go. The worst thing is the texting is a bit slow to send and receive, but works fine. Luckily we have never had to use the SOS feature, and hope we never need to.
Have the inReach Explorer. Found it handy, and a gave piece of mind while out backpacking. I will say, after you cancel service keep an eye on your bank account. Three months after cancelling they stilled billed me for each month. Had to call each month to remind them I cancelled. Finally, I stopped having auto withdrawals, followed with refunds.
Do you post on Cheap RV living .com? They have a forum and it is pretty decent you could leave a link to your video you can explain your video some intro it and tell them to look at this GREAT LIFE SAVING Device. This is the site produced by Bob Wells founder of the RTR. http://www.cheaprvliving.com/forums/
good info nice to know the price is getting more affordable on these hopefully it will get even cheaper over the next few years..
. for now I'm still planning the majority of my camping in places where I'll get a cell signal I've been speaking with the people at Winegard and they assure me it won't be much longer before they have a self-tuning antenna like they do for satellite television but for satellite internet : ) if I do start doing much out of range camping I'm going to need either satellite phone or satellite internet because I also have a few medical issues and I'll developmental issues if I don't have some way to stay up to date with what's going on in the world : )
actually you are better off with a transmitter and receiver like HAM if you are a prepper. the satellites will all be disrupted by the EMP just before the giant air pressure change. Just remember folks- keep your mouth open so you dont blow your eardrums! just kidding/ not really
Health Travelers looking on amazon comments. It is $144 per year for the ten messages per month plan. Then it goes up in monthly price from there. $600 per year is the expensive unlimited plan. So is $12 per month worth it to you for ten messages (maybe $0.10 to $0.50 for additional messages). Basically it like the old text data plans from ten years ago. --- wife mentions that we might get this when we go to remote west or remote Canada or remote Alaska. Otherwise we stick to cities and highways that have cell service.
Janis Meader you can always get a ham radio license. Spend $1000 on HF radio equipment. Spend three months learning everything about radio and maybe morse code. And then do it all. --- trying to do this myself.
Janis Meader Well nothing is forever: those satellites will eventually de-orbit too and space junk will make orbital science almost impossible soon but until then: this is as cheap and as good as it gets! lol
You can do it with a yearly subscription or as you go. Since they are paying my 1st month via a rebate, it's $75 Canadian dollars (about $60 a month) for unlimited use. You can move that down for way less if you just want 100 messages a month or just for emergencies. All countries price this differently and in the currency of your nation so it is not worth discussing much. Go to the Garmin web site of your country for current prices, as rebates and sales often occur.
Getting old only sucks if you abused your body in younger years, smoking, drinking, drugs, bad eating habits. People wonder why they have health issues. Then they get older and think taking pills prescribed by a doctor is the answer and continue same bad habits that got them in their situation. Eating healthy consistently can reverse many health issues. Bad habits are hard to break.
Tech just keeps getting better and better! There's usually a hiker every day or two in the remote areas if you need help (joking). Just get your weight down, take 87 mg aspirin daily, Take your BP medications to keep it under 140/90, and get your minimum 30 minutes a day or twice a day even better vigorous walking/exercise in. Take care,,,
Did I not mention Don't Smoke? Don't Smoke. Also cut back on the dairy, fat, and especially sugar. Artificial sweetener isn't much if at all better. Try not to eat after 6. I lost 70 pounds and feel great from practicing all the above.
John, 1Tiliman channel, is on the downside of heart issues but is working to get back up after a few stents. Currently undergoing a heart strengthening treatment he says is working. Bugger still smokes a bit.
Yes, it is cheaper than the OTHER satellite option of iridium satellite phones...you priced them out lately and their subscription plans?? What is your option? Smoke signals? 2 tin cans and a long string? I don't think you watched the video...no other cheap option for global remote communication than this.
True. With a contract over time the price does go down however for internet data via satellite. It took BILLIONS of dollar to get those 5 or 6 dozen satellites up into orbit and the original Iridium company went bankrupt over it when they first tried it so I doubt there will be a cheaper alternative for many years. It is amazing that this service is as affordable as it is for the price given the economic reality of the technology.
Oh they have it and I have looked at it: there is serious latency (time interval delay due to sending data to space and back) and it has very limited bandwidth. Streaming video and uploading youtube video on it is a hassle and very slow. It's not that much money (relatively speaking) but you don't get much for your money!!
