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.

Both the inReach Explorer+ and the inReach Explorer+ offer identical messaging capabilities, however - it's on the GPS navigation side that you'll notice a difference. 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

To access the Iridium network and communicate with your inReach Explorer+ or Explorer+ device, an active satellite subscription is required. Depending on your usage level, you can opt for an annual contract package or flexible month-to-month airtime plan.

    the best remote comms you can ever get

    I brought this for my daughter and her Fiance as their engagement present as they love fishing, hunting and camping. Massive piece of mind to me as a Dad. Can contact them where ever and when ever and they can contact me. Use these at work - and you can park all the other devices in the bottom drawer.

    Pros: multi faceted, reliable and well made. peice of mind. versatile
    Cons: zero

    Excellent quick communication and location sending

    The description of the unit does what it says and I have found it an excellent and reliable way to communicate and send my locations. The maps provide enough information to navigate and identify the areas you are in if you have a basic knowledge of your area. When paired with a smart phone or tablet the map details can be reviewed in a satellite image or Topo along with planning your next trip. From my point of view where nearly every weekend is spent in very remote locations the unit is easily worth the cost. I now leave the Garmin Montana 680 and my sat phone at home.

    Pros: The pairing with a smart phone is a great feature
    Cons: Monthly message and tracking costs. You pay to receive messages also.

    Staff provide exceptional customer servive

    I have not used the inReach out bush yet. I would like to recommend this Rocklea store for their high quality service. Examples:- knowledgeable advice on the phone, best price by far, speedy delivery using good packaging to protect the phone. Quality company who are a pleasure to deal with.

    Brilliant tool for those who like to go to remote places

    We use this device for both adventure motorcycle riding and horse riding in the bush. Seems to have excellent coverage. The battery life is amazing.

    Pros: Easy to use, long battery life, good coverage
    Cons: Maps have a very poor level of detail

    got bogged, sent a satellite txt, help arrived without going all DEFCON 4

    I was on tour, & about to head outback, when my phone started playing up (GPS TomTom). I also have 1 ePIRB, 2 UHF, 3 GPS (bicycle). I nervously called JA & ordered this unit - fantastic service - arrived next day. Quickly had it up and going, leaving bread crumbs & keeping in touch with people even where mobile reception was non-existent. Peace of mind knowing that when I got bogged, help was not an emergency Search & Rescue, but a couple of farmhands turned up who had been mustering near-by. I am now looking forward to planning a trip on the companion app and then following it on the Garmin.

    Pros: intuitive, button friendly for moto gloves, clear screen, great service by JA
    Cons: weather report was not very accurate, expensive plans, companion app is not really designed for mob phone... works better on computer.
