Let the family come along with the automatic tracking system. Easy on/off with the flick of a button this feature allows those at home to track your progress and keep tabs on your location. Dust proof, waterproof and impact resistant you can take the InReach anywhere with confidence that when things go south you will have the tools you need to make it out alive. In addition to allowing you to contact family, friends and emergency personnel the Explorer allows you to add way points, set routes and destinations.

The InReach can also be synched with your smartphone to provide easier texting, access to saved numbers in your phone and even downloaded topo maps from the InReach device. The ease of use and 100% global make the InReach a clear choice when your safety is on the line.
