My guess is competition for the Zoleo.

That looks like a really cool device. Might be time to move on from my ol' reliable SPOT device.

Reasonable price. Subscription cost?

I was wondering the same thing.

Assuming it's the same as all their InReach stuff, it's $15 a month if you just do one month at a time. I think it's closer to $10 a month if you keep it all year. That's their most basic plan, you get ten messages (unlimited preset messages though, which you get three of to set up beforehand), and no sharable tracking. All messages after your ten are 50 cents.

They have two other tiers which give you more tracking points (to share) and messages, they are $35 and $65 a month. There is also a yearly fee of $20 or $30, even if you only use it one month a year.

One thing I like about the Messenger from my quick review of it, is that it can also double as a charger for your phone if you need to. Kinda like having a spare battery pack along.
