Leave the city for the peaceful solitude of the wilderness with the Garmin inReach SE+ notifying your loved ones of your whereabouts in case you get stranded, lost, or injured in the wild. This satellite communicator is designed for outdoor recreation and expeditions far from the comforts of civilization, working off the grid with 100% global Iridium satellite coverage. The unit’s rugged construction withstands bumps on the trail, inclement weather, and submersion in shallow bodies of water.
It’ll notify GEOS with the simple click of a SOS button, which is the leading search and rescue center in over 140 countries. Because adventures don’t adhere to standard business hours, GEOS is on call 24/7/365 for peace of mind when you’re traveling deep into wilderness areas. Basic grid navigation gives you the ability to mark waypoints, track your progress, and follow a breadcrumb trail back to civilization. It syncs with your smartphone and tablet via Bluetooth, giving you in-depth maps and geographic analysis with the free Earthmate app.
Another useful capability, the unit’s tracking function gives friends and family real-time updates on your whereabouts via the MapShare online portal. The inReach SE+ sends waypoints to this online portal at predetermined intervals, also working with blogs and social media programs to deliver this information. For users desiring text message capability, the unit sends messages from anywhere in the world with a subscription service available from Garmin.
