Pair your inReach® satellite communication device with the Earthmate® app to get all the features you need to send and receive text messages, navigate and stay connected during your outdoor adventures. It’s perfect for planning, tracking and sharing your trip anywhere around the globe.

This Garmin application lets you access*:
• Unlimited topographic maps that you can cache on your device and store for offline use, including topographic maps, quad sheets and U.S. NOAA charts
• Aerial imagery
• Hybrid maps
• Waypoints and route navigation
• Tracking and location sharing
• High-detail GPS trip logging
• Unlimited cloud storage of routes, waypoints and tracks
• Online trip planning
• Control and access all the features of your inReach device from the app: send 2-way custom or preset text and email messages, trigger an SOS from anywhere in the world, track your location and more

By pairing your mobile device (via Bluetooth® technology) with inReach, the Earthmate app turns your mobile device into a true satellite communication, GPS navigation and safety tool. To access the 100% global Iridium® satellite network for live tracking and messaging – including SOS capabilities – from the Earthmate app, an inReach device with active satellite subscription is required.

You can plan your adventures from your account on the Garmin Explore™ website, wirelessly sync them to your smartphone or tablet, and then save all your trip data and maps with unlimited cloud storage.

Great other than wind speed in knots

App works well with my inReach Mini. Please provide an option to choose how windspeed is displayed in this app. It is displaying in knots as opposed to miles or kilometres per hour. When I view the windspeed on the inReach device itself it properly shows kilometres or miles per hour for windspeed.

No Aerial Maps for Canada

Garmin advertises the app and inreach to have the ability to download Aerial maps. This is not the case for Canada. False advertising if you ask me

Pretty good - one glitch

I just got an inReach mini and am getting used to it. So far I like the app but I found one glitch. When I go to download by region, there is no NEXT button. In fact, there is one, but it is invisible in the top right corner. Other than that I am pretty happy with it.
