With the inReach Messenger satellite communicator, home is closer than you think. Providing global two-way messaging and interactive SOS (active satellite subscription required), it keeps you connected with friends and family even when you’re out of cell coverage. Use the device to check in with contacts, read and reply to their responses with QuickText messages and even share your GPS location data if you like. More detailed texting and group messaging is easy when using the Garmin Messenger app. Seamless switching between Wi-Fi® wireless networking, cellular and satellite networks, gives you the best connectivity and cost- efficiency for all your communications. The on-device display gives you the added confidence of knowing that your message has been sent. You’ll even see a response that help is on the way in case of an emergency. The communicator’s internal, rechargeable lithium battery gives up to 28 days of battery life — and provides safety charging to help recover a depleted phone.
