The inReach's antenna should have a clear view of the sky according to Delorme. That being said, I have had mine perpendicular to the sky and messages went just as fast: ~ 3-10sec. Heck, I even managed to send a message while in my home office. So, my answer is, the inReach's position is not nearly as critical as the SPOT - mainly because the inReach has a better antenna.
