    Excellent resource!

    Will this work with a Delorme Inreach instead of a spot?

    i signed up just yesterday . bravo to the site admins for pulling this all together.

    i would like to suggest two things to maybe curb phone costs to the assistance site { regarding the use private numbers and call forwarding type costs} .

    1}Is there any way for the "get help" person in distress to send a text message to the "give help" person? When i am riding a intercepted text message is stored and read instantly where a voice mail I would need to find / connect to a cell tower to even listen to the message...prolonging the response time.

    2} in the spirit of 1} above ,,maybe a check box in the "give help" member settings to indicate the "give help" locator balloon could say "text recipient".

    Thanks again for this great resource !!!

    Bill, if the 'give help' person has a Cell number listed, the system will send a request via SMS (text). Text is given preference over Email because of the higher response rate.
