All about this product



With the inReach Messenger satellite communicator from Garmin, home is closer than you think. Providing global two-way messaging and interactive SOS, it helps keep you connected with friends and family even when you’re outside of mobile phone coverage.


Use the device to check in with contacts, read and reply to responses with pre-set messages and even opt to share your GPS location data. More detailed texting and group messaging are easy when using the Garmin Messenger smartphone app, compatible Garmin handhelds, wearables or other Garmin devices.


Seamless switching between Wi-Fi wireless networking and mobile phone and satellite networks gives you superior connectivity and cost-efficiency for all your communications. The on-device display gives you confidence by knowing that your message has been sent. You’ll even see a response that help is on the way in case of emergency. The communicator’s internal, rechargeable lithium battery gives up to 28 days of battery life in 10-minute tracking mode—and can even provide safety charging to help recover a depleted phone. Small, rugged and capable, it's the communication device you never want to be caught without.
