Garmin products that include inReach technology are designed to keep you connected. The Iridium satellite network lets you send and receive custom and preset text messages or emails with a delivery confirmation.
All inReach technology-enabled Garmin products offer GPS navigation, tracking and more. GPSMAP 66i even comes with preloaded Garmin TOPO mapping and direct-to-device Birdseye Satellite Imagery downloads.
Devices enabled with inReach technology can send track points at preselected time intervals, so you can choose to share your adventures. Using your web-based MapShare™ trip-sharing page, followers can see your progress, ping your device to see your GPS location and exchange messages during your trip.

GEOS will stay in touch with you and your emergency contacts until your situation is resolved.
