Get weather forecasts right on your inReach-enabled device, so you can make educated decisions based on local conditions or the destination ahead. Choose from 3 forecasts on your inReach device: basic, premium and premium marine.1

GPS and Navigation

All Garmin products enabled with inReach technology offer GPS navigation, tracking and more. Some even come with preloaded Garmin TOPO mapping, direct-to-device Birdseye Satellite Imagery downloads or coastal charts.

Interactive SOS

In case of emergency, trigger an interactive SOS1 message to the Garmin Response, a professional 24/7 staffed emergency response coordination center. Trained staff is available to respond to your messages, track your device and contact and coordinate with emergency services or others to provide assistance – giving you peace of mind. The Garmin Response can stay in touch with you until help arrives or you no longer require assistance.

Message Your Team

Locate and communicate with your team in the field from your command center or from a team member onsite. Use inReach two-way messaging1 for primary communications or as a backup solution when a radio, cell phone or other device is not available.

Apps for Your Device

When paired with a compatible inReach device, use the Garmin Explore™ or Earthmate app for two-way messaging, tracking and SOS capabilities on your smartphone or tablet. You can also use the apps to view your current location, plan and navigate routes, set and manage waypoints and more.

Professional Management Website

The complete inReach system provides a robust back-office management website for monitoring and messaging teams in the field, maintaining a fleet of devices, centralizing billing, controlling device settings and configurations for multiple devices and using other account management features. Utilize our inReach API web protocol to integrate inReach data with your platform or custom solution.
