Garmin inReach Explorer Plus Satellite Messenger
In Case of Emergency, inReach Delivers
Encounter an at-risk situation in a remote location or offshore, and inReach quickly becomes the most valuable tool in your survival kit. It provides global, interactive SOS capabilities — and that means you’re able to trigger a distress signal, receive delivery confirmation that help is on the way and maintain a 2-way text conversation with the GEOS emergency monitoring center. GEOS is standing by 24/7 to assist with your emergency, track your location and notify the most appropriate emergency response for your unique situation. Whenever, wherever — the GEOS team will stay in communication with you until your situation is resolved.
The SOS Advantage: 2-way Communication
Unlike other popular satellite communication devices, inReach 2-way communication technology allows you to receive and send messages — so you’re continually updated on the status of any search or rescue operation. While others who use limited 1-way devices are left to sit and wonder if their SOS has been received, your inReach 2-way messaging provides a much more reassuring scenario:
- You press SOS to send an emergency alert.
- GEOS quickly responds, letting you know help has been called.
- You describe your emergency so responders know whom and what to send.
- Responders advise you when to expect assistance — and suggest potentially life-saving actions to take in the meantime.
- You communicate with friends and family, letting them know the situation and where to contact the rescue team.
- Help arrives. You’re able to coordinate any logistics or medical care that may be needed upon your return.
