Garmin inReach Explorer+

Handheld Satellite Communicator with GPS Navigation

 

The InReach Explorer+ represents Garmin's first iteration of the InReach units after acquiring DeLorme. The InReach Explorer+ has improved on the original unit in almost every aspect. Additionally, Garmin has made a new inclusion with preloaded topo maps and the ability to add additional maps to the unit.

Learn everything you need to know about the InReach Explorer+ features in our blog post.

While venturing off the grid, you'll always be in reach when carrying the Garmin inReach Explorer+. Designed for the outdoor enthusiast, the inReach Explorer+ is a handheld satellite communicator that allows you to roam farther and experience more without compromising your loved one's peace of mind. Features such as communication, location sharing, navigation and critical SOS functions are available to use whether you're on land, water or in the skies - whether you're on a backcountry experience or on an international adventure.

Texts, Emails and More - Anywhere

Using the worldwide coverage of the Iridium satellite network, the inReach Explorer+ lets you send a text message to anyone with a cell phone number of email address anywhere in the world and you can use the inReach Explorer+'s in-built GPS to track and share your journey's progress. You can also communicate with other inReach devices in the field, or post to social media.

In case of an at-risk situation, you can also use inReach to trigger an SOS to the 24/7 monitoring center, text back and forth about the nature of your emergency, and receive confirmation when help is on the way.

 

Works Anywhere and Everywhere

No need to worry about whether you are in range of a cell tower or encountering spotty coverage in fringe zones or blackout areas, the inReach Explorer+ gives you the tools needed to stay totally connected and always in reach.

 

Share Your Whereabouts with MapShare®

Let friends and family follow your progress on their computers or mobile devices through the web-based MapShare® portal. By turning on the tracking function of your inReach Explorer+, it will send waypoints at preselected time intervals, so people following along can track your whereabouts online. Invite your crew 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.

 

Pair with Your Compatible Smartphone

Using the free Earthmate® app, you can sync your inReach device to your compatible Apple® or Android™ device via Bluetooth®. This gives you the capability and convenience of accessing unlimited maps, aerial imagery and U.S. NOAA charts.

Plus, the Earthmate app lets you use all of the inReach features on your paired mobile device and you can sync your phone's contact list to your device, so you can reach anyone, anywhere - with fewer keystrokes.

 

Weather Forecasts Wherever You Are

Access the optional weather forecast service on your inReach device, providing detailed updates directly to your device, compatible smartphone or tablet paired with the Earthmate app, so you'll know what conditions to expect en route. There are basic and premium weather packages available and you can request weather forecasts for your current location or any other waypoint or destination on your itinerary.

 

24/7 SOS Response by GEOS

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. Available 24/7/365, they're standing by ready to respond to your SOS, track your device and notify the proper contacts and emergency responders in your area. While waiting for help to arrive, GEOS will continue to text back and forth with you - providing updates and critical information until your situation is resolved.

The inReach Explorer+ uses GPS to provide basic grid navigation and allows you to drop waypoints, mark key locations, track your progress and follow a breadcrumb trail back to base - the inReach Explorer+ goes a step beyond - providing full-fledged GPS on-map guidance with preloaded TOPO mapping and waypoint routings viewable directly on the unit. The Explorer+ also comes with a built-in digital compass, barometric altimeter and accelerometer to help you get and maintain accurate bearings anywhere.

 

Affordable, flexible Satellite Airtime Plans

    A wonderful 4 in one device.

    I'm really liking the InReach Explorer+, it's simplified my packing by replacing my GPS, PLB and satellite phone. The interface is easy to use without reference to the manual, I had it up and running immediately. It's cheaper to run than a sat phone too. Love the way my family can track my movements in the field and I can see how far we travelled and where. USB charging allows me to top it up with my solar battery pack. The screen is easy to read with its bright colours and the buttons have a nice touch. Really enjoying it.

    Pros: One device, four functions: GPS with maps, a PLB, Tracking routes, Satellite Texting.

    Essential communications and safety device

    Used on a kayak trip in a remote area. Easy to use. Communications function excellent. Attached to a PFD it handled heavy rain and spray with no problems. Basic weather forecast function only used. No guide to the symbols used and inaccurate for the next 24 hrs. The topographic map of Australia supplied is not worth the extra money. The inreach is not a substitute for a GPS.

    Pros: communications and SOS function, robust construction
    Cons: supplied topographic map very poor, no capability to add better maps.

    So far so good.

    I've only had the InReach for a few weeks and am still getting use to it's various features. I purchased this unit after doing research and reading various reviews. So far so good. I'm only a casual user a few times a year when I go remote camping and this unit has worked each and every time I've tested it. My only issue is the pricing of the various plans and the inability to carry over unused credit.

    Pros: Compact, lightweight, relatively easy to use.
    Cons: Usage plans seem expensive for the casual user.

    Excellent capability for remote activities

    I purchased the inReach Explorer+ for remote area bikepacking, in lieu of a SPOT tracker due to the extra functionality of the inReach, namely ad hoc (ie, free text) two way messaging. You can type messages through either the inReach, or your Bluetooth smartphone. Navigation is adequate for a redundant navigator— ( when primary is a GPX following bike computer, or smartphone apps), but this is not at the standard of an eTrex. Having said that, after a few days of trials (overnights in the Snowies), I have ditched my eTrex as a backup (behind my bike computer and smartphone), and use the navigation function of the inReach as my redundant navigator. Battery life appears exceptionally good (numbers of days). Micro USB cable charging which is more useful (being more common) than eTrex’s mini-USB. No SD card nor removable batteries are a consideration, however I have it loaded with the free Australian topo maps from Garmin (which are based on opencyclemap), and can load up 1000’s of kms of routes (as 500 point GPX files), and I still don’t have any memory storage issues. The firmware version I have (March 2018) remains incompatible with Garmin BaseCamp— perhaps that will change as the inReach transitions further to a standard Garmin product from the previous OEM (that Garmin bought out). Compare the subscription costs to a SPOT (cheaper for Australia at time of this review) — and you can ‘park’ it. Additionally, you can send free text messages, and importantly, receive messages (useful to know if they are aware that you will be late, through their acknowledgment of your initial message). Compatible with Maprogress for adventure race tracking (for the ‘spot watchers’). I mount it via a $2 Chinese eTrex compatible mount on the handlebar. Overall — recommend very highly...

    Pros: Satcom data messaging and tracking easy, topo mapping adequate
    Cons: 500 point max GPX files

    A well made PLB, with a messaging ability

    A very nice though expensive device. As a PLB with messaging to family - excellent. Maps are a tad basic, and would have liked the ability to use Garmin's Topographical maps. They are unavailable I believe. The user manual is very basic, and signing up to the in-reach network was not straight forward. I found some online videos for setting up very helpful.

    Pros: Handy sized PLB. Messaging, and tracking functions
    Cons: Maps are basic. Garmin Topographic maps are unavailable for this device.
