Or when paired you get enhanced send-and-receive text messaging, inReach can be paired with an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android phones and tablets. The inReach uses the Iridium satellite network, it has 100% global service, with no gaps, no degraded or fringe coverage areas. The inReach is buoyant, waterproof to 3 meters, and impact-resistant to military standards. When used by itself, all inReach functionality is controlled by its pushbutton interface, which is ergonomically designed for one-handed use. In standalone mode inReach can send out messages and tracking points, and receive confirmation. Unlike one-way satellite messengers inReach clearly indicates when your message has been delivered to its recipient. When you’re alone in a remote location, knowing your message was received may be the most reassuring piece of information you can have. When paired with an iOS or Android mobile device, inReach has the ability to both send and receive text messages, to and from any place on the globe. The two-way messaging capability applies to both personal and SOS communications. The Earthmate app, available at no charge for both iOS and Android platforms, installs all inReach function screens on the companion device, allowing users to compose and send personal and SOS messages, receive delivery confirmation, enable tracking, and check message history. Using inReach and your paired device you can describe the nature and location of your distress in detail, so the proper resources can be deployed.
