Product Description

Explore anywhere. Communicate everywhere. inReach Explorer®+ is the rugged satellite communicator and GPS navigator that uses 100% global Iridium coverage for 2-way text messaging and tracking, anywhere in the world. Navigate with detailed, preloaded TOPO maps1, follow routes, mark waypoints and find your way back with a high-detail bread crumb trail. Using GPS tracking, you can easily share your location with family, friends, social media or emergency responders. In case of emergency, the interactive SOS allows you to communicate back and forth and receive confirmation that help is on the way. For added capability, use the free Earthmate® app to pair your inReach Explorer+ with mobile devices2.
