No Cell Tower? No Phone Service? No Problem.
inReach Explorer+ gives you all the tools to stay totally connected. You don’t have to worry about being within range of a cell tower - or encountering spotty coverage in fringe zones or blackout areas.
Your inReach satellite communicator works anywhere and everywhere - so you’re never out of range, never out of reach.

Track and Share Your Whereabouts
Turn on the tracking function of your inReach Explorer+ communicator, and let family and friends follow your progress on their computers or mobile devices, using the web-based MapShare® portal.
The inReach device will send waypoints at pre-selected time intervals, so followers can track your whereabouts online. You can also 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.

Need maps?...Pair with your mobile device
For even more capability, the free Earthmate app syncs your inReach handheld via Bluetooth with your compatible Apple® or Android™ device1 so you can access unlimited maps, aerial imagery and U.S. NOAA charts.
Plus, Earthmate allows you to use all of the inReach features on your paired mobile device. For easier messaging, you can also sync your inReach device with your phone’s contact list to reach anyone, anywhere - with fewer keystrokes.
