Compact, Rugged Design: Don't let the 4" x 2" size and the 4 oz. weight fool you. The inReach® Messenger is tough, durable, impact-resistance and water-rated to IPX7.
Garmin Messenger™ App: Send two-way messages globally, even when you're out of cellular coverage. The app supports seamless switching between Wi-Fi® wireless networking links, broadband cellular and the Iridium® satellite network.
Group Messaging: With the Garmin Messenger™ app, your inReach connection supports group message threading and distribution. So, you can share your adventures with multiple contacts simultaneously - and have group text chats with friends and family.
Safety Charging: Need a backup option in case your compatible smartphone battery dies? Just connect the inReach Messenger to your phone for enough safety charge to send a custom text message from the inReach Messenger device via your phone's touchscreen.
Improved Two-Way Messaging: A simple user interface through the Garmin Messenger app on your smartphone makes it easy to exchange text messages with loved ones via satellite, cellular, or Wi-Fi® wireless networks.
Check-In Messages: Check in with contacts directly from the inReach Messenger by using preset messages that do not count toward your allotted text messages with an active satellite subscription.
Interactive SOS Alerts: In case of emergency, trigger an interactive SOS to the Garmin IERCC, a 24/7 staffed emergency response coordination center.
