To access the Iridium network and communicate with your Garmin inReach SE+ Explorer GPS, 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. 

You may venture off the grid, but you’re never out of reach as long as you’re carrying a Garmin inReach SE+ Explorer GPS. These handheld satellite communicators are designed for the outdoor enthusiast who wants to roam farther and experience more without compromising their loved ones‘ peace of mind. From backcountry experiences to international adventures, Garmin 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, these go-anywhere portable devices let you exchange text messages with any mobile phone number or email address anywhere while using 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 at-risk situation, you can also use the Garmin inReach Explorer GPS to trigger an SOS message to the 24/7 monitoring centre, text back and forth about the nature of your emergency, and receive professional advice and confirmation when help is on the way.

Garmin inReach SE+ Explorer give 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 what happens in many cases encountering spotty coverage in fringe zones or blackout areas.

Who Will Answer Your SOS? GEOS Will!!
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.

Turn on the tracking function of your Garmin SE+ 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 Garmin Earthmate app syncs your Garmin SE+ Explorer via Bluetooth with your compatible smartphone device so you can access unlimited maps and aerial imagery.

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.


As satellite communicators, both the Garmin inReach SE+ and the upgraded Explorer+ offer identical messaging capabilities. However, it’s on the GPS navigation side that their differences become apparent. While inReach SE+ uses GPS to provide basic grid navigation and allow you to drop waypoints, mark key locations and track your progress. inReach Explorer+ goes a step beyond, providing comprehensive navigation and tracking to guide you on and off the beaten path, using full-fledged GPS with preloaded inland 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 beering and helps you to find your way even when there is bad visibility.
