I have a delorme inreach. Bought it over the spot because the reports I saw said the reception was better for our area. It's worked great for me, though I've never used the emergency functionality (thankfully). I do sometimes grump about seeing the monthly subscription bill come through when I haven't gotten to go fishing anywhere that doesn't have cell reception recently. But I just chalk it up as a form of insurance that I need for those days when I am out in the outback.
