Cell phones are great as long as you have a signal, but with the Garmin inReach Explorer+ Satellite Communicator, you're always in touch, anywhere in the world. With a satellite service subscription, you can send and receive text messages, send SOS messages to the GEOS 24/7 search and rescue monitoring center, navigate your route, and share your location and progress with family and friends back home.
Navigate with pre-loaded DeLorme topographical maps and keep track of your precise position using the built-in digital compass, barometric altimeter and acceleromoter. The Bluetooth-enabled inReach can pair with your regular mobile phone or tablet to access additional downloadable maps, U.S. NOAA charts, color aerial imagery, and more.
You'll get up to 100 hours of active-use runtime from one charge of the inReach's built-in lithium-ion battery, via the included micro-USB power cable or optional in-vehicle 12V charger. The device is IPX7-rated, so it will stand up to rain, snow, splashing, or immersion 3.3' deep for up to 30 minutes.
