When your journeys take you to remote locations, inReach Messenger is the satellite communicator that goes beyond the limits of cellular networks to keep friends and family in reach with global two-way text messaging1. You can check in with contacts, read and reply to their responses with QuickText messages, and even share your GPS location data. Use the Garmin Messenger™ app on your compatible smartphone for more detailed texting and group messaging threads that let you share your adventures with multiple contacts
EASY 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.
Share your location with loved ones back home anytime by using your MapShare™ page or with your GPS coordinates embedded in your messages.
INTERACTIVE SOS ALERTS
In case of emergency, trigger an interactive SOS message to the Garmin IERCC, a 24/7 staffed emergency response coordination center.
MESSENGER APP INTEGRATION
The Garmin Messenger app can sync with your smart phone’s contacts list to make staying in touch even easier. When you have connectivity, the app works for messaging on your smartphone with or without your inReach satellite device connected. So you can easily connect, via cellular network, with contacts who are also using the Garmin Messenger app.
MAKE THE INREACH® CONNECTION WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY
Your inReach® Messenger satellite communicator lets you pack peace of mind, no matter where your travels may take you. With global satellite coverage, inReach messaging can keep you connected, even in places where there’s no cellphone coverage or internet access.
YOUR SEAMLESS CONNECTION
Optimized inReach messaging uses your compatible smartphone’s cellular connection when it’s available, then it seamlessly switches to a global Iridium® satellite link when you go beyond available cellular coverage range.
With the Garmin Messenger™ app, your inReach connec tion 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.
FLEXIBLE AIRTIME OPTIONS
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 pack age or a flexible month-to-month plan.
Need a backup option in case your compat ible smartphone battery dies? Just connect inReach Messenger to your smartphone for enough safety charge to send a custom text message from the inReach Messenger device via your smartphone’s touchscreen.
EXTRA-LONG BATTERY LIFE
The inReach Messenger’s internal, rechargeable lithium battery gives you up to 28 days of battery life so you can do what you love longer between recharges.
