Plus, the built-in GPS enables basic navigation with a high-detail bread crumb trackback trail –while location tracking lets you easily share your location with family, friends, or emergency responders. There’s also a free Earthmate® app that lets you wirelessly pair an inReach SE+ with your mobile device (iOS and Android) via a Bluetooth connection and get unlimited access to TOPO maps, aerial imagery and U.S. NOAA charts from anywhere on the planet.

inReach SE+ does not include: Pre-loaded topographic maps, or built-in navigation sensors (view the inReach Explorer+ for these features). However, there is a basic map page view that shows a breadcrumb trail against a white grid background (no on-device maps). 

Pairing with a smartphone will overlay the breadcrumb trail on a topographic map in the Earthmate App.

Which inReach Is Right for You?

As satellite communicators, both the inReach SE+ and Explorer+ offer identical messaging capabilities. However, it’s on the GPS navigation side that their differences become apparent. While inReach SE+ uses GPS to provide basic grid navigation and allow you to drop waypoints, mark key locations, track your progress, and follow a breadcrumb trail back to base – the inReach Explorer+ goes a step beyond, providing full-fledged GPS on-map guidance with preloaded TOPO mapping and waypoint routings viewable directly on the unit. Plus, a built-in digital compass, barometric altimeter and accelerometer are included with Explorer+ to help you get and maintain accurate bearings anywhere on or off the beaten path.

Other Compatible Apps

Enterprise Web App

inReach devices are also compatible with the Enterprise web app. The Enterprise web app is designed for organizations that need to support and monitor a large number of inReach users, require very short tracking intervals, and want the option to monitor their own SOS alerts. To use inReach with the Enterprise web app, inReach must be activated with special byte-based subscription plans. Contact us for details.
