This is a handheld satellite communicator with GPS Navigation and two-way communications capabilities. Using the worldwide coverage of the Iridium satellite network, these go-anywhere portable devices let you exchange text messages with any cell phone number or email address anywhere – while using GPS to track and share your journey’s progress. You can also post to social media or even communicate inReach-to-inReach on the water.
In case of an at-risk situation, you can use inReach from anywhere in the world 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. This is a big plus over Epirb units which only allow you to transmit, never really knowing who is coming to help or when.
