InReach SE, Australian price gouging..

Looking at buying the inReach SE for the Indonesian Rally next year, typically Australians have to pay more for less .
US monthly contract $65, unlimited TXT & track points.

Australia monthly contract, $50 , 40 free TXT & 600 track points .

Anyone Aussies been able to hack to cheaper US rates or know how too?

Re: InReach SE, Australian price gouging..

Funny thing is, the average Australian user is probably getting a better deal. Especially once you take the exchange rate into account.

Re: InReach SE, Australian price gouging..

Looks like the plan options are completely different.

You'd probably want the monthly freedom plan if you could get it.

Could just be a delay in that plan getting to the Oz market. I'd wait till you get closer to time and have another look.

I am tempted to get a freedom plan and lock it in for future use...
