Note: in 2016 Garmin acquired DeLorme. The inReach product line includes: DeLorme inReach SE, DeLorme inReach Explorer, Garmin inReach SE+ and Garmin inReach Explorer+.

If you are travelling overseas or deep into the backcountry, I’d recommend that you take a Garmin inReach Explorer to ensure that you can communicate with your loved ones and give them peace of mind. It really has no equal
