If you’re venturing off the grid, this small, rugged satellite communicator goes beyond the limits of cellular networks to keep friends and family in reach with global two-way text messaging.
- You can still connect to the ones who matter, even when there’s no cellphone coverage.
- Check in with contacts directly from the inReach Messenger by using check-in messages that do not count toward your allotted text messages with an active satellite subscription.
- Pair your inReach device with the Garmin Messenger™ app on your compatible smartphone to text via satellite or cellular networks.
- Need emergency assistance? Send an interactive SOS to our coordination center.
- When you need to be sure, the on-device display confirms that your message has been sent.
- Use check-in messages to easily check in with contacts as you travel.
- Stay on your adventures longer with up to 28 days of battery life between recharges.
- A simple user interface through the Garmin Messenger app on your smartphone makes it easy to exchange text messages with loved ones via satellite or cellular networks.
- Optimized inReach messaging uses a cellular connection of your smartphone when it’s available, then it seamlessly switches to a 100% global Iridium® satellite network when you go beyond available cellular coverage range.
- With the Garmin Messenger app, your inReach connection supports group message threading and distribution. So, you can share your adventures with multiple contacts simultaneously — and have group text chats with friends and family.
- In case of emergency, trigger an interactive SOS message to Garmin ResponseSM, a 24/7 staffed emergency response coordination center.
- Share your location with loved ones back home anytime by using your MapShare™ page or with your GPS coordinates embedded in your messages.
- To access the global Iridium network and communicate with your inReach Messenger device, an active satellite subscription is required. You can opt for an annual package or a flexible month-to-month plan.
- Remotely control your inReach Messenger device to send and receive text messages or trigger an interactive SOS using your compatible Garmin handhelds, marine equipment, aviation equipment, wearables or other select smart devices.
- Get detailed weather updates on inReach Messenger or your paired compatible device. You can even request forecasts for your current location, other waypoints or destinations on your itinerary.
