Your hikes might take you off the grid but you're never out of reach as long as you carry the inReach Explorer+ GPS by Garmin

Garmin inReach Explorer+ Portable GPS is an invaluable digital companion for the outdoor enthusiast who wants to explore further and experience more – without compromising friends and family's peace of mind.

With its reliable features, it is ideal for ambitious expeditions and extended backpacking trips anywhere in the world - on land, water or in the skies.

Key Features

Explore and Communicate Globally

Using the worldwide coverage of the Iridium satellite network, these go-anywhere portable devices let you exchange text messages with any cell phone number or email address — while using GPS to track and share your journey’s progress. You can also post to social media or even communicate inReach-to-inReach in the field.

In case of an at-risk situation, you can also use inReach to trigger an SOS to the 24/7 monitoring center, text back and forth about the nature of your emergency, and receive a confirmation when help is on the way.

SOS/Emergency Messaging

The Explorer+ has an easily accessible SOS button on its side. A sturdy plastic cover makes it almost impossible to accidentally activate, even when it's shoved deep inside of your pack among loose items.

To initiate a rescue, you hold down the SOS key and wait for a countdown, which ends with a preset message and your location being sent to the emergency response service. After replying to a confirmation message, you can communicate with the emergency response service.

The Explorer+ sends an updated location to emergency responders throughout the rescue; once per minute for the first ten minutes, and from there once every 10 minutes while moving or once every 30 minutes when stationary. If circumstances change, it is also possible to cancel a rescue call after it is initiated.

Track and Share Your Whereabouts

Turn on the tracking function of your inReach SE+ or Explorer+ communicator, and let family and friends follow your progress on their computers or mobile devices, using the web-based MapShare portal.

The inReach device will send waypoints at preselected time intervals, so followers can track your whereabouts online. You can also invite your crew back home to use MapShare to ping your inReach unit and see your GPS location, track your movements, and exchange messages during your trip.

Pair with Your Mobile Device

For even more capability and convenience, the free Earthmate® app syncs your inReach handheld via Bluetooth® with your compatible Apple® or Android™ device¹ so you can access unlimited maps, aerial imagery, and U.S. NOAA charts.

Plus, Earthmate allows you to conveniently use all of the inReach features on your paired mobile device. For easier messaging, you can also access your phone’s contact list from the Earthmate app to connect with fewer keystrokes.

Signal Coverage

We find reception impressively reliable on the Explorer+, and it is relatively quick to send and receive messages. You only need a clear view of the sky to acquire satellite connections. Connection times vary, but we rarely waited more than 5 minutes to get a solid one.

Get Weather Wherever

The optional inReach weather forecast service provides detailed updates directly to your inReach device, compatible smartphone or tablet paired with the Earthmate app, so you’ll know what conditions to expect en route.

Basic and premium weather packages are offered. And you can request weather forecasts for your current location or any other waypoint or destination on your itinerary.

Built for the Rugged Backcountry

Tough, durable, impact resistant and water-rated to IPX7, the inReach SE+ and Explorer+ handhelds are built to keep you up and running — no matter what the elements throw at you.

An internal, rechargeable lithium battery comes standard on both units so you can count on long battery life in every mode of operation.
Recharge via the standard micro USB power cable or optional in-vehicle 12 V charger.

Unlimited Cloud Storage and Trip Planning are Included

Every inReach device comes with free access to a cloud-powered portal to plan your trips with routes and waypoints, create preset messages and quick texts, sync and manage your device settings, update your firmware, download additional TOPO maps, link your social media accounts, store all your location tracking data and much more.

Affordable, Flexible Satellite Airtime Plans

To access the Iridium network and communicate with your inReach SE+ or Explorer+ device, an active satellite subscription is required. Depending on your usage level, you can opt for an annual contract package or flexible month-to-month airtime plan.

Ease of Use

With abundant features and a simple interface, the inReach Explorer+ is easy enough to use. The menus are straightforward to learn and easy to navigate.

Portability

Explorer+ is simple, inexpensive, and very portable, given all that it does. It is larger and heavier than even the bulkiest smartphones, but it does things your smartphone cannot do.

Why Shop at 4x4 Down Under?

We know that you have a lot of options out there, and we’re incredibly grateful that you’re considering spending your hard earned money with us. We like to think we stand out from the crowd in a few ways.

Excellent & Honest Service

We try and provide the best pre and after sales service possible. If you have a question we’re here to help, and if we don’t know the answer we’ll tell you and then do our absolute best to find the answer for you. We’re also here to guide you to the best possible outcome for you. A lot of stores will simply try to up-sell you on the most expensive option. That’s not how we operate. We want to build a relationship with our customers, and the only way to do that is by being honest and direct.
4x4 Down Under is built on honesty and integrity. For example when you make a purchase with us we only charge your account once we confirm the product is ready for dispatch.
Although we like to guarantee everything on our store is available we’re not perfect and mistakes do happen. If something turns out to not be available we’ll let you know immediately and you have the option to cancel your order or wait for more stock to arrive. Should you not want to wait the order is voided, and there’s no waiting a week to get your money back (it’s instant!).

No Sales Gimmicks 

When you shop at 4x4 Down Under you don’t have to worry about:
  • Annoying and dishonest ’Sales Timers’ that simply reset every few hours and are there to coerce you into buying.
  • Dishonest “low stock” labels, another coercive sales gimmick.
  • False “John just bought a…” alerts. Our customer alerts (bottom left) are 100% true and we're proud of them.
  • Being bombarded by trust badges and labels everywhere you look that mean nothing. 
  • We don't spam! Your information is safe with us. It will never be shared or sold, or used to fill your inbox with garbage.

High Quality Products & Free Shipping

Aside from the above we also offer free shipping to almost everywhere in Australia (on any product over $150), have a great range of high quality products at excellent prices and LOVE what we do! If you still have any doubts feel free to give us a call on 1300 76 86 41, or contact us here. We'd love to hear from you.
