Garmin Launches inReach Messenger & App for Satellite Communication

Garmin’s GPS watches are some of the best-known and most widely utilized by hikers, trekkers, mountain climbers, explorers, marathoners, and fitness junkies. Now, with Garmin inReach Messenger, you can stay fully in contact anywhere in the world you go.

The compact, 4-ounce inReach Messenger box makes for the perfect travel companion, letting you connect your GPS device or your smartphone via WiFi, cellular network, and iridium satellite. It works with the inReach Messenger smartphone app to facilitate two-way texting, SOS, and location sharing anywhere in the world you go, even serving as a back-up power source to juice up a dead cell phone battery in case of emergency. The box’s built-in SOS button will let you call help even if you’re alone in the middle of nowhere without a single GPS device or smartphone around for miles.
