Garmin InReach Messenger

Stay in touch with global messaging

If you’re venturing off the grid, this small, rugged satellite communicator goes beyond the limits of cellular networks to keep friends and family in reach with global two-way text 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 or cellular networks.
  • Optimized inReach messaging uses a cellular connection of your smartphone when available, switching seamlessly to the Iridium® satellite network when beyond cellular coverage. (Access to access the Iridium network requires an an active satellite subscription. You can opt for an annual package or a flexible month-to-month plan.)
  • The Garmin Messenger app 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.
  • Check in with contacts directly from the inReach Messenger by using check-in messages that do not count toward your allotted text messages with an active satellite subscription.
  • In case of emergency, trigger an interactive SOS message to Garmin ResponseSM, a 24/7-staffed emergency response coordination center.
  • Share your location with loved ones back home anytime by using your MapShare page or with your GPS coordinates embedded in your messages.
  • Get detailed weather updates on inReach Messenger or your paired compatible device.
  • The TracBack® routing feature navigates you back to your starting point the same way you came, should you get lost — right on your device.
  • The internal, rechargeable lithium battery gives you up to 28 days of battery life in 10-minute tracking mode, so you can do what you love longer between recharges.
  • At 3.1 inch x 2.5 inch size and 4 oz, the inReach Messenger is tough, durable, impact-resistant and water-rated to IPX7.
