LA GRANDE, OR - (June 12, 2013) -- Steve West, host of the top-rated Outdoor Channel series Steve's Outdoor Adventures (, and DeLorme (, maker of the award-winning inReach satellite communicator, have announced a television partnership for the 2013 season. The announcement came after a highly successful test of inReach during West's recent month-long Alaskan bear hunt, in which the device enabled him to stay in touch with his fans on a daily basis, even in the most remote parts of the wilderness.

"Simply put, the DeLorme inReach product is game changer in this industry," said West. "Never before have I had access to not only post my whereabouts during an intense hunt, but the safety aspect of the inReach is incomparable. This is a must-have product for any hunter or huntress whose travels take them out of reach."

Thanks to the inReach satellite communicator, an innovative, consumer-affordable solution from DeLorme, fans of Steve's Outdoor Adventures can experience the hunt like they never have before, a unique benefit for fans and followers of West.

This week, West headed back to Alaska and will be using the new inReach SE model, which includes a color screen and virtual predictive keyboard. West will be posting his daily movements and activities on the Outdoor Channel website and the Steve's Outdoor Adventures Facebook page (

"The hunting industry is a very important market for DeLorme," said Kim Stiver, DeLorme's vice president of marketing. "With inReach, both hunters and those they love can have peace of mind knowing that they can be tracked, reached and rescued no matter where the game takes them. Partnering with such an accomplished, well respected hunter and TV personality like Steve West is a natural fit for us. We are very excited about this partnership and Steve's ability to introduce us to a whole new segment of the hunting community."

Both models of the DeLorme inReach two-way satellite communicator pair via Bluetooth with popular smartphones and tablets and allows users to send and receive text messages when outside of cell phone range -- anywhere in the world with the Iridium satellite network. With 90 percent of the world's surface lacking cell phone coverage, inReach has received enthusiastic interest from hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts such as backpackers, mountaineers, hunters, anglers, sailors, pilots, snowmobilers and other outdoors enthusiasts. Friends and family can share in the adventure with the Follow-Me/Find-Me Tracking and Locating feature, which provides GPS position updates. Followers can log into the user's MapShare page and follow a detailed breadcrumb trail and read updated messages and trip details.

In the event of an emergency, the inReach's SOS capability provides peace of mind by automatically triggering a remote tracking service and, when paired, allows users to describe and update their situation so proper resources can be deployed.

When used in conjunction with DeLorme's Earthmate app and Explore website, the seamless inReach experience provides worry-free navigation with unlimited access to downloadable topographic maps, journey tracking and wirelessly turns a smartphone or tablet into a two-way text-messaging global communications device.
