Combine Garmin’s famous navigation technology with anywhere-in-the-world communication and you get the GPSMAP 66i Handheld Navigator and Satellite Communicator. With a paid subscription, you can send and receive texts from anywhere, no cell service needed, via the Iridium global satellite service. If there’s a problem, you can send an SOS to the 24/7 GEOS emergency response service, which will dispatch local first responders to your aid and provide interactive support while they’re en route.

You’ll find your way on preloaded Garmin TOPO maps, augmented by BirdsEye Satellite Imagery that downloads straight to the 66i with no subscription necessary. Challenging routes or environments get a lot easier thanks to the device’s support for multiple Global Navigation Satellite Services along with altimeter, barometer, and compass navigation sensors. Pair with your smartphone or device to take advantage of all the route-planning and -sharing capabilities of the Garmin Explore mobile app. And if you have a cell signal, the 66i will use it to pull in Active Weather forecasts, including predictive maps.

  • See it in any light. Use it in any conditions. GPSMAP 66i was built for that.
  • When mobiles can’t connect, inReach can. Communicate with confidence.
  • Multi-GNSS satellite support puts superior navigation at your fingertips.
  • Get maps as pretty as a picture and just as detailed — without a subscription.
  • Know the terrain before you’re in it, with preloaded TopoActive maps of Australia and New Zealand.
  • Stay out there longer with up to 35 hours of battery life in tracking mode and up to 200 hours in Expedition mode.

Built for Tough Treks
The sturdy, button-operated GPSMAP 66i features a large 3” colour display you can see even in bright sunlight. If you’re out in the field for long stretches of time, you can turn on Expedition mode and get up to 200 hours of battery life while using inReach technology. In the default tracking mode, you get up to 35 hours of battery life, and your device will save your location every 10 minutes.

Satellite Communication
Staying in touch is vital, even on less challenging trips. Using inReach technology (subscription required), this handheld lets you trigger an SOS to the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team for interactive support in an emergency. It also enables two-way messaging and LiveTrack location sharing via the 100% global Iridium satellite network, so you can stay in contact with loved ones, teammates, headquarters and more.

Navigate with Confidence
GPSMAP 66i is fitted with the best in Garmin navigation. Preloaded TopoActive Australia and New Zealand maps show you summits, parks, coastlines, rivers, lakes and geographical points. Direct-to-device downloads of BirdsEye Satellite Imagery provide high-resolution photo-realistic views of your route, trailheads, clearings and more — without an annual subscription. Support for multi-GNSS combined with altimeter, barometer and compass navigation sensors lets you track and navigate in challenging environments.

Weather Anywhere
Wireless Cellular connectivity lets you access Active Weather for up-to-date forecasts, including predictive maps for temperature, wind, precipitation and clouds — right on the handheld when connected to Garmin Connect Mobile.

Pair with Your Mobile Device
The free Garmin Explore mobile app lets you plan, review and sync data, including waypoints, routes, activities and collections. Review completed activities while still in the field, even when you’re off the grid. The app also lets you sync your GPSMAP 66i with your compatible mobile device so you can access unlimited maps, aerial imagery and U.S. NOAA charts. You can even use all of the inReach features on your paired mobile device. For easier messaging, you can access your phone’s contact list from the Garmin Explore app to connect with fewer keystrokes. Plan for future trips and review previous activities from the Garmin Explore website.
