Product Description

PlayBetter is an authorized retailer of the Garmin inReach Messenger satellite communicator

Garmin inReach Messenger Satellite Communicator

Out & about with friends or family? Be sure to pack your inReach Messenger satellite communicator. This device lets you stay connected, even when out of cell coverage! Use it for two-way messaging or use the emergency SOS feature — making sure that every word counts by sending exactly what’s needed at the perfect time.

Optimized inReach messaging uses a cellular connection of your smartphone when it’s available

Garmin Messenger app on your smartphone makes it easy to exchange text messages

In case of emergency, trigger an interactive SOS message to the Garmin IERCC

Share your location with loved ones back home anytime by using your MapShare


What’s better than one message from your loved ones? A group text chat with all of them at once! With the new Garmin Messenger App, you can share any adventure & have conversations about how amazing it was. The inReach connection supports both satellite or cellular networks.


When you leave your phone behind, inReach messaging uses a cellular connection. When it can’t reach any networks on land or sea alike (that’s because there are no buildings up here), then the 100% satellite-based global Iridium coverage range takes over for complete reliability!


Trigger an interactive SOS message to the Garmin IERCC, a 24/7-staffed emergency response coordination center. This will send your coordinates & any other vital information you deem important in case of emergencies.


If you’re feeling homesick, just share your location with someone back home using the MapShare website page. You can also use embedded GPS coordinates in messages for a quick way of letting them know how things are going!

To access the global Iridium network, an active satellite subscription is required

The inReach Messenger is tough, durable, impact-resistant & water-rated to IPX7

The Garmin Messenger app can sync with your compatible smartphone’s contacts list

Get detailed weather updates on inReach Messenger or your paired compatible device


An active satellite subscription is required for you to access the global Iridium network so you can communicate with your inReach Messenger device. Choose between an annual package or a flexible month-to-month plan. Whatever works for you!


The inReach Messenger is a tough, durable device with a high-end memory-in-pixel screen that can withstand water & impact. With up to 28 days of battery life on one charge you’ll never be without your beacon when hiking or camping!


The Garmin Messenger app is an easy way to stay in touch with friends & family. The innovative sync feature allows you match up your phone’s contact list, so there are no more missed text messages!
