Was planning to go for an Earthmate PN-60w by Delorme, after reading a lot about how great they were expected to be, how happy folks were with the earlier models, and then the SPOT addition, seemed perfect

Now a little later, read one terrible review on a retail site,
and they, (Delorme) apparently aren't friends with SPOT anymore

The Outdoor mags are saying big things about the new, "In Reach," safety/tracking deal, so.........

What do you folks know, any experiences with these??

Apparently I can buy the PN 60 as stand alone, for a good price, which is really what I'm after

should I wait out the In Reach thing, or is it kicking in with high reviews?
