inReach enables you to send and receive text messages, trigger an SOS for help, and track your GPS coordinates, wherever your trip takes you. It keeps you connected when off the grid and outside of cell phone range.

• Send and Receive Messages. inReach is the most affordable satellite communicator that allows you to both send and receive messages either on-screen on the device (SE model) or in paired mode with your mobile device.
• SOS Delivery Confirmation. With inReach, you will know that your SOS alert has been received and help is on the way.
• Interactive SOS Messaging. You can have a two-way text conversation with GEOS, the 24/7 search and rescue monitoring center to describe the nature of your distress in detail, and ensure the appropriate resources are dispatched.
• 100% Global Coverage. inReach uses the Iridium network, which has no black-out zones anywhere on earth.
• Location Sharing and Pinging. MapShare (see p. 8) allows others to watch your trip and ping your inReach to see your location between tracking intervals.
• Unlimited Access to Downloadable Maps. Through Earthmate (see p. 7), you get unlimited access to free downloadable topographic maps and NOAA charts.

Using DeLorme’s free Earthmate app, inReach pairs via Bluetooth with
mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets.

Both inReach models can be used in conjunction with DeLorme’s Earthmate app on a mobile device and our Explore web portal. When paired with your mobile device, the capabilities of either inReach product is enhanced. Previously downloaded map data is only accessible during paired mode. Pairing inReach
allows you to use your mobile device to send messages from the Earthmate app.

• Earthmate app syncs with your mobile device’s address book for easy texting.

Web Portal and Mapshare: Prepare and share your journey with family and friends with our Explore web portal:

• Load preset messages to your inReach.
• Link to your social media accounts.
• View all your previous trips and messages.
• Manage your account and settings, including emergency contacts.

An exclusive benefit of inReach ownership is unlimited access to free topographic maps from DeLorme and North America NOAA charts. Building on 35-plus years of experience in backcountry cartography, our maps are some of the most accurate and comprehensive in the world when it comes to trails, logging roads and topographic data.
Before leaving on a trip and using a high-speed Internet connection, just download the area of the world you need in the Earthmate app on your mobile device. When you’re out on your adventure you’ll always know where you are and your map will never run out, unlike streaming maps on a cellular connection.
