YARMOUTH, Maine –-( The DeLorme Earthmate PN-60w with SPOT Satellite Communicator has been selected for Camping Life Magazine’s 2011 Editors’ Choice honors.

It’s the latest in a growing list of awards since the product launch in Fall 2011.

PN-60w with SPOT Satellite CommunicatorThe Earthmate PN-60w is a rugged, waterproof handheld GPS offering full navigation capabilities, plus the unique ability to create custom Type & Send text messages for delivery via the SPOT Satellite Communicator. Users can explore and stay connected with family, buddy lists, social network sites, and emergency responders, even if far beyond the reach of cell phone service.

Camping Life Editor Stuart Bourdon explained, “Every year we see hundreds of examples of new camping equipment – from stoves to footwear and everything in between. Some new gear really wows us but this list should be reserved for our favorites – the few things that stuck with us months after we examined or tested them.”

Specifically regarding the Earthmate PN-60w with SPOT Satellite Communicator, Bourdon said, “This is a natural pairing of two great devices that allows you to stay in touch from locations anywhere in the world when there’s no cell phone coverage.”

2011 Camping Life Editors Choice Award Winner DeLorme Vice President Caleb Mason added, “We are very proud to have won another coveted award. Because Camping Life is such a widely respected publication, our selection for this honor is exceptionally gratifying.”

The Earthmate PN-60w with SPOT Satellite Communicator has been the most-honored outdoor GPS product since it was launched in September. Previous honors include 2011 Backpacker Editors’ Choice honors, 2011 Consumer Electronics Association Innovations Award, Popular Mechanics 2010 Breakthrough Award, and 2010 National Geographic Gear of the Year honors.

The Earthmate PN-60w with SPOT Satellite Communicator is available at outdoor, electronics, and GPS retailers and websites in both the U.S. and Canada. Topo North America GPS maps and PC software are included in the package. For more information, visit or call 800-561-5105.
