New York, NY — November 16, 2011 — DeLorme, the innovation leader in navigation technology, has been honored for its new inReach™ Satellite Communicator with a Popular Science Best of What's New award. Popular Science annually awards 100 new products and technologies in 11 categories including: Automotive, Aviation & Space, Computing, Engineering, Gadgets, Green Tech, Home Entertainment, Security, Home Tech, Health, and Recreation (inReach's category). Winners are featured in the magazine's December issue.

The inReach is a personal communication device that, for the first time, offers affordable two-way satellite communication, message delivery confirmation, remote tracking, and SOS emergency capability anywhere in the world. It is now available from better retail and online outlets offering electronics or outdoor recreation gear.

At $249, inReach can serve as a standalone device, allowing pre-programmed messages and SOS alerts to be sent via the device's pushbutton interface. When paired with either an Android phone or DeLorme's Earthmate PN-60w handheld GPS, inReach delivers two-way messaging with family, friends, colleagues, or emergency responders.

Messages are relayed by inReach to and from Iridium satellites, which make up the world's furthest-reaching communications network. The inReach is built around the Iridium® 9602 short-burst data transceiver, enabling its global, two-way connectivity.
"For 24 years, Popular Science has honored the innovations that surprise and amaze us – those that make a positive impact on our world today and challenge our views of what's possible in the future," said Mark Jannot, Editor-in-Chief of Popular Science. "The Best of What's New Award is the magazine's top honor and the 100 winners – chosen from among thousands of entrants – represent the highest level of achievement in the field."

"It's truly an honor to have inReach recognized among so many exciting new products," Jim Skillings, DeLorme vice president for commercial products. "We are thrilled with the positive feedback about inReach and this award is a further validation of how DeLorme continues to push the innovation envelope."

The inReach has also received numerous other prestigious accolades including 2012 CES Innovations honors, a National Geographic Adventure Fall Winter Gear of the Year award, and Outside Magazine Gear of the Show and GearJunkie.com Best of Show awards from the industry-leading Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show.
