Why We Like The Garmin inReach Messenger

We venture far beyond the reaches of cell service with Garmin's inReach Messenger offering us seamless connection with family and friends to give them peace of mind while we're out clearing our own. We preset messages and check-in times, so we can spend more time exploring and less time staring at a screen. This little device does more than text, it gives us weather updates and TracBack routing to keep us prepared and on course.
