This satellite communicator allows you to send and receive 160-character text messages with GPS coordinates to cell numbers or e-mail addresses worldwide. You can also trigger an S.O.S. and interact back and forth with GEOS, a 24/7 search and rescue monitoring center. This S.O.S. function lets you communicate the nature of your distress and stay in touch throughout the rescue process for ultimate peace of mind. In addition to worldwide communication capability, the inReach Explorer also lets you create or view routes, see your tracks, and navigate using the on-screen map view. Plan and share your route online in advance so that others can follow along and observe your progress. Equipped with a digital compass, barometric altimeter, and accelerometer, the inReach Explorer provides heading and bearing information, accurate elevation readings, speed, and moving average. The inReach Explorer operates on the Iridium® satellite network which utilizes 66 low-earth orbiting (LEO) cross-linked satellites to ensure 100% coverage across the globe. Easily control and use the functions of the inReach Explorer from your mobile device (iOS or Android) via the Earthmate app. The app also provides access to downloadable topographic maps, aerial imagery, and NOAA charts. You can invite others to ”ping” your inReach Explorer through MapShare to view your location and exchange messages. With adjustable tracking intervals from 10 minutes to 4 hours you can track your trip and share your location, including GPS coordinates, elevation, and speed. The color screen and virtual keyboard with predictive text allows for easy messaging, and visual and audible notifications alert you of new messages. In addition to an IP67 water and dust rating, the impact-resistant unit also meets Mil-STD-810G for shock. An active satellite subscription is required for use.
