Garmin inReach® Messenger


The brand new Garmin inReach® Messenger provides inReach® quality satellite communication over the Iridium network in a small and compact design.

The IPX7-rated, rugged device allows carriers to send two-way messages from anywhere in the world, communicating with friends and family through the intuitive Garmin Messenger App.

It doesn't matter if the device carrier is within cellular range or satellite coverage, messages will still be reliably transmitted. In case of emergency, users will be able to trigger an interactive SOS to the Garmin IERCC 24/7 staffed coordination centre for help.

Pocket-Sized Convenience
The Garmin inReach® Messenger weighs in at only 100g but feels solid in your hand as it keeps you connected wherever you travel. And should you run low on power while out on the trail, make the most of reverse charging from another device to handle those unexpected top-ups.

Seamless Global Communications
You never know when you might hit a 'dead spot', but, with the inReach® Messenger App, you don't have to worry because the Messenger App will seamlessly switch from mobile coverage to the globally-reaching Iridium coverage to make sure you stay connected wherever you are.

Endurance Battery Life
The inReach® Messenger is ready for the greatest adventures with up to 200 hours of battery.

Global Two-Way Messaging
Send Quick Text messages directly from the device to one person at a time as well as Preset Messages using the three buttons on the device itself. You can also reply to messages using the Quick Text directly on the device.

TracBack® allows you to go back the way you came to your starting point should you get lost, right from your device.

inReach® Weather
Get detailed weather updates on your inReach® Messenger. You can even request forecasts for your current location or other waypoints or destinations on your itinerary.

Familiarity for Effortless Messaging
The inReach® Messenger App is similar to Facebook Messenger, and it is here where you can send and receive direct messages one-on-one or with a group. You can even use the app when the inReach® Messenger is powered off.
