inReach SE: How It Works

inReach SE (Screen Edition) is the satellite communicator from DeLorme that puts amazing functionality in the palm of your hand without having to pair the device:

  • Send and receive free-form, 160-character text messages outside of cell phone range.
  • Trigger an SOS and interact back and forth with GEOS, our 24/7 search and rescue monitoring center.
  • Turn on tracking to share and view GPS coordinates.
  • Color screen and virtual keyboard with predictive text.
  • Intuitive LED indicator for satellite availability.
  • Audible message notifications.
  • Internal, rechargeable lithium battery lasts about 100 hours at continuous operation at 10-minute tracking intervals with a clear view to the sky. Extended tracking mode can extend battery life even more for long-haul trips.
  • Designed for maximum durability in harsh environments (waterproof, dustproof, and impact-resistant).
  • Post to social media.

Yacht Tracking All Over the World

Reliance Yacht Management Provides Security & Assurance to Yacht Owners

It used to be not too long ago that Owners would hand over the keys of their yacht plus a bunch of money to a delivery captain, who then sailed off into the sunset with it all not knowing if and when they will see either again.

Fortunately things have moved on and Reliance Yacht Management is able to provide regular position reports through their tracking systems giving their clients much needed reassurance and charter operators a tool to manage their fleets more efficient and securely.

One system that is low costs, simple to use and easily transferable in the Spot Gen3 tracker

Anyone who travels by land, sea and air! Since its launch, SPOT’s satellite technology has provided peace of mind by helping initiate more than 2,500 rescues and counting and providing GPS tracking services. Over the past five years, recreational outdoor enthusiasts, athletes, government agency employees, National Geographic explorers and photographers, and researchers are just some of the people that have benefited from using SPOT.

The screen shot shows some of the yachts on delivery today with us using this system.

The Spot3 and other security devices are available through our store

Reliance Yacht Management Offers Largest Range of AIS Systems


Reliance Yacht Management offers an extensive range and safety, navigation and communication equipment through their new marine store including the largest range of AIS devices.

Automatic Identification System (AIS) is a vessel tracking system capable of communicating navigation information automatically between AIS equipped vessels and coastal authorities. Vessels equipped with a receiver can also benefit by knowing the whereabouts and intentions of these ships. AIS provides a tool for improved safety and collision avoidance. Since 2004, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has instituted carriage requirements for vessels affecting both worldwide and local shipping traffic. These carriage requirements apply to commercial vessels subject to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) convention.

The devices are being supplied and installed to private pleasure craft by Owners that recognise the safety benefits. Mandatory regulation requires all vessels over 300 tonne on an international voyage and all domestic vessels over 500 tonne to have an AIS transponder installed. Passenger ships irrespective of size are also required to carry an AIS transponder.
