Even if you venture off grid you’ll never be out of touch with the Garmin inReach Explorer+. This handheld satellite communication and GPS navigational device is designed for the outdoor enthusiast who wants to explore farther and experience more without compromising their loved ones‘ peace of mind or their own safety. From backcountry experiences to international adventures inReach provides communication, location sharing, navigation and critical SOS functions for anyone who loves getting away from it all, on land, water or in the skies.

Using the worldwide coverage of the Iridium satellite network the inReach Explorer+ portable device lets you exchange text messages with any mobile phone number or email address: anywhere. It also uses a built in GPS to track and share your journey’s progress. You can also post to social media or even communicate inReach-to-inReach in the field.

In case of an emergency you can also use inReach to trigger an SOS to the 24/7 monitoring center, text back and forth about the nature of your emergency, and receive confirmation when help is on the way. So, who exactly answers your SOS call? GEOS is the world leader in emergency response solutions and monitoring. They’ve supported rescues in more than 140 countries, saving many lives in the process. And they’re standing by 24/7/365 to respond to your SOS, track your device and notify the proper contacts and emergency responders in your area. Then, while help is on the way, GEOS will continue to text back and forth with you, providing updates and critical information until your situation is resolved.

You are assured of constant coverage, being able to talk to family and friends, or call in a rescue whilst always knowing exactly what the associated costs are; thanks to inReach service plans.

Garmin inReach Explorer+ gives you all the tools to stay totally connected. You don’t have to worry about not being within range of mobile phone signal, or what happens in many cases encountering spotty coverage in fringe zones or blackout areas. Your inReach communicator works anywhere and everywhere.

Turn on the tracking function of your inReach SE+ or Explorer+ communicator, and let family and friends follow your progress on their computers or mobile devices, using the web-based MapShare® portal. The inReach device will send waypoints at preselected time intervals, so followers can track your whereabouts online. You can also invite your family and friends back home to use MapShare to ping your inReach unit and see your GPS location, track your movements and exchange messages during your trip. You can even embed your MapShare page on a blog, website or social media.

For even more capability and convenience, the free Earthmate app syncs your inReach handheld via Bluetooth® with your compatible Apple® or Android™ device so you can access unlimited maps and aerial imagery. Plus, Earthmate allows you to conveniently use all of the inReach features on your paired mobile device. For easier messaging, you can also sync your inReach device with your phone’s contact list to reach anyone, anywhere.

The optional inReach weather forecast service provides detailed updates directly to your inReach device, compatible smartphone or tablet paired with the Earthmate app, so you’ll know what conditions to expect en route. Basic, premium and marine weather packages are offered. You can request weather forecasts for your current location or any other waypoint or destination on your itinerary.

The Garmin inReach Explorer+ offers all of the above messaging and emergency messaging capabilities alongside a fully functional GPS navigator. You can make use of basic grid navigation, drop waypoints, mark key locations, track your progress, and follow a breadcrumb trail back to base as well as providing comprehensive navigation and tracking using full-fledged GPS with preloaded TOPO mapping and waypoint routings viewable directly on the unit. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer can help to monitor the air pressure, while the digital compass keeps you bearing.

To access the Iridium network and communicate with your inReach Explorer+ device, an active satellite subscription is required. Depending on your usage level, you can opt for an annual contract package or flexible month-to-month airtime plan.

Every inReach device comes with free access to a cloud-powered portal to plan your trips with routes and waypoints, create preset messages and quick texts, sync and manage your device settings, update your firmware, download additional TOPO maps, link your social media accounts, store all your location tracking data and much more.

"I first noticed Trekitt by their fantastic YouTube videos, which were very informative and honest. So I headed on over to the website and looked at various coats to try and determine which to go for. Being a bit of a muppet I didn't really have a clue what was best so contacted customer services who directed me to a few coats but said he would go away (over the weekend!) and think some more and get back to me Monday. I thought it was just a fob off as the conversation had been going a while but low and behold on Monday morning an email appears with suggestions! I was so pleasantly surprised that if I hadn't already been convinced to buy with them, it was concreted then. I bought 2 coats from them the same day and very shortly after they appeared. The fit was exactly as they had suggested it would be, the quality of the items was as described and I am very happy with them. In this day and age of large companies taking a backward step from customer service, it is such a breath of fresh air to be treated with such a personal touch. If I ever need anything outdoorsy, I know exactly where I'm going."
