Garmin inReach Explorer+

Garmin inReach helps you explore anywhere and communicate everywhere. inReach offers 100% global satellite coverage with the ability to send and receive full-size text messages, SOS, track and navigate – all in one rugged handheld device.

Overview:

From backcountry treks to international adventures, inReach satellite communicators from Garmin provide two-way communication, location sharing, navigation and critical SOS functions for anyone who loves getting away from it all, no matter if it’s on land, water or in the sky, all while providing peace of mind for friends and family back home. Both the inReach models have 100% global Iridium coverage for two-way messaging and SOS alerting anywhere in the world. They also include a built-in GPS for location tracking and basic navigation, and the inReach Explorer+ adds preloaded topographic maps, compass, barometric altimeter and accelerometer. For even greater convenience, inReach devices pair with smartphones and tablets using the free Earthmate app. inReach devices offer an interactive SOS feature, which allows them to communicate back and forth with GEOS about the nature of the emergency. Users can also set up emergency contacts on their devices that will also be notified in the event of an SOS. The optional inReach weather forecast service provides detailed updates directly to your inReach handheld or to your paired mobile device. inReach comes with free access to a cloud-powered portal to plan, sync and store your trips and navigation details.
