Pair with an inReach Device for More Off-grid Capability
Either standalone edition of Earthmate provides a robust navigation platform for your smartphone or tablet.

You can trigger an SOS anywhere in the world and communicate back and forth with the 24/7 rescue monitoring center. Plus, when you’re beyond cellphone coverage range, you can still continue to use your smartphone with Bluetooth-paired inReach to send 2-way text messages — and even link to your social media accounts — from anywhere on the planet. The Earthmate app syncs with the address book on your mobile device to make staying in touch even easier.
