The Garmin inReach devices have been extremely popular, but we’ve come across a number of instances where the setup and hardware costs are too high for customers doing ocean crossings or a couple of weeks in the bush. So now we have started offering a rental option for customers who just want to get all the benefits of worldwide satellite communication without the outlay costs!

To get the best out of this unit, you will need to download the Earthmate App on your smartphone and pair it with the inReach via Bluetooth


Our Garmin inReach Rentals service is perfect for venturing off the grid while staying within reach of loved ones. These handheld satellite communicators are designed so you can stay in touch while out of cellphone coverage. So they are perfect for the mountains or out at sea.

Garmin inReach provides text message communication and email communication. Plus, location tracking and sharing, available via a website. The inReach is also capable of basic navigation and critical SOS functions, meaning they are great for anyone who loves getting away from it all.

Explore Anywhere With Coverage Everywhere.

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 in the field.

In case of an at-risk situation, you can also use inReach 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.

No Cell Tower? Got No Service? No Problem.

inReach rentals give 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 rental communicator works anywhere and everywhere – so you’re never out of range, never out of reach.

Track and Share Your Location

Turn on the tracking function of your inReach SE+ or Explorer+ communicator to let family and friends follow your progress on a computer or mobile device, using the web-based MapShare portal. The inReach device will send waypoints at preprogrammed 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.
