We will be isolated for most of the summer, with little to no cell coverage or wifi. The tracker allows us access to weather, text communications, tracking and emergency response.
It will be fun for those who follow us and a must for family if they need to get ahold of us in an emergency.
I would have purchased the Explorer if it only gave me local weather. Many anchorages are wind dependent. Knowing the direction and strength of the winds will take the guess work out of where we spend our nights and how long we can stay there.
All in all, with everything it does, the Explorer is a great thing to have way out in the middle of no-where.
