Does not ship to Canada, but they shipped mine to a Kinek location without any issue.

It’s worth researching the subscription costs for inReach, and it’s rival, Spot, before purchasing. Plans and coverage vary depending on your own location and needs. For example, InReach doesn’t work well in some areas of northern BC, and vice versa.

True, however, I've taken Spot off my list due to messages not being delivered reliably and some really bad customer service.

Totally fair. I’ve heard similar problems with both Spot and inReach. Some skiers got caught in an avalanche last winter and had an inReach and it pinged their location way-off, causing a problem for rescuers. Thankfully everyone came out alive. Similarly, I’ve been in locations far north with a Spot, and at times their has been cell reception yet somehow in a blind spot for Spot’s satellite, meaning the messages and location would not send/receive.

That’s why I suggest asking friends locally who use these to find out which option works best for where you live- it can help save your life, but only if it works.

I do prefer inReach over all.

My Spot Gen3 works well as long as you keep it always facing upwards.

Good deal though, the 2-way is a great feature.

So is it a $60 rebate or discount? Your post says rebate, but seems to be a discount. As far as I know, rebate is a refund that you get later on after the purchase.

If you really are in a situation that requires 'saving your life', then there is no substitute for a proper personal locator beacon.

or
https://www.mcmurdogroup.com/mcmurdo-pr ... tfind-220/ (I have this)
or similar.

you register with Canadian Military (based in Ottawa), the registration is free, it uses 2 frequencies (one satellite, one local) to find you. It costs $0/month to run for 5 years or so, after which the battery is not guaranteed, and you get just that replaced.

Don't trust your life to toys. InReach is OK for communicating, but it's not a life saving device.

Discount, I thought they are the same, sorry.
