Garmin inReach Explorer+ Review

Reasonably affordable two-way satellite communication – Garmin inReach Explorer+

Garmin inReach Explorer+

Garmin inReach Explorer+

Garmin recently launched two new products, the Garmin inReach Explorer+ (link to Amazon) and the Garmin inReach SE+. Both products come with a ton of new exciting features and improvements in the Garmin’s product line. Among them, two-way communication. It comes to mind the RINO series (link to Amazon), which allow us to communicate within the radio range. Well, the inReach provides all new level of communication. It consists of a feature that makes the inReach series very unique as it enables users to communicate with other people without having to depend on a radio or mobile network range. It relays on a direct satellite communication. That means it may be used to communicate from almost any place in the world. Garmin claims that it has 100% global coverage. Just as a quick note: the inReach products actually come from the acquired by Garmin company DeLorme earlier this year. You can read more about the purchase in the Garmin Newsroom here.
