It was a planned 3 hour hike. He got very lucky because we all know what happened to Gilligan and friends when they set sail for their 3 hour tour...

Are there any non Apple out yet? I was looking at Garmin's inreach but if there are phones out now that have the capability then it would be worth it to go that route.

T-Mobile with their partnership with SpaceX is expected to allow direct to sat text messages before the end of the year on ordinary 4G/LTE phones.
