inReach MessagingGlobal Two-Way Messaging

Send and receive messages anywhere in the world even when out of mobile range with inReach Explorer+.  There are two ways to message using the device, the quickest way is to send a preset message (e.g. I’m ok or Heading home).  Alternatively you can type out a message using the onscreen keyboard.


You can send messages to an email address or mobile phone number however in our experience messaging to email tends to be the most reliable method.


inreach SOSCall for emergency assistance anywhere in the world with the SOS function

In the event that you get into a dangerous situation and need to call for assistance inReach can help.  When you press the SOS button on the side of the device your GPS co-ordinates will be sent to the GEOS Emergency Response Center. GEOS will send a message to you to try to obtain further information on the situation.  They also have access to your preset emergency contacts and will contact them for further info on what you are doing.  Once the SOS button is pushed your co-ordinates will be automatically transmitted every 2 minutes until the SOS is cancelled. 


GEOS work with emergency services worldwide and using your co-ordinates they will work with appropriate organisations to get help.  They will not abandon the case until they are certain you are safe.
