Garmin inReach Messenger and Satellite Communicator

Garmin inReach Messenger and Satellite Communicator go beyond the limits of cellular networks to keep friends and family within reach with global two-way text messaging. If you’re venturing off the grid, this small, rugged satellite communicator will help you navigate.

Two-Way Messaging

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.

Seamless Connection

Optimized inReach messaging uses a cellular connection of your smartphone when it’s available, then it seamlessly switches to a 100 percent global Iridium satellite network when you go beyond the available cellular coverage range

Group Messaging

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.

Interactive SOS Alerts

In case of emergency, trigger an interactive SOS message to the Garmin IERCC, a 24/7-staffed emergency response coordination center.

Location Sharing

Share your location with loved ones back home anytime by using your MapShare page or with your GPS coordinates embedded in your messages.

Flexible Satellite Airtime Plans

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.

Compact, Rugged Design

Don’t let the 3.1-inch x 2.5-inch size and 4-oz weight fool you. inReach Messenger is tough, durable, impact-resistant, and water-rated to IPX7.

Safety Charging

Just connect inReach Messenger to your phone for enough safety charge to send a custom text message from the inReach Messenger device via your phone’s touchscreen.

Extra-Long Battery Life

The internal, rechargeable lithium battery gives you up to 28 days of battery life in 10-minute tracking mode, so you can do what you love longer between recharges.

Sync Your Contacts List

The Garmin Messenger app can sync with your compatible smartphone’s contacts list to make staying in touch even easier.

On-Device Display

The inReach Messenger device’s high-end memory-in-pixel screen gives you the ability to confirm that messages have been sent, and you can even read responses right on the device.

Check-in Message

Check in with contacts directly from the inReach Messenger by using preset messages that do not count toward your allotted text messages with an active satellite subscription.

Other Garmin Devices

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.

InReach Weather Forecast Service

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.

TracBack Routing

The TracBack routing feature navigates you back to your starting point the same way you came, should you get lost right on your device.
