100% Global Coverage
Most expeditions use GSM GPS trackers for expeditions all over the UK. However, maybe you have a expedition heading somewhere more remote, typically abroad, and need that extra level of assurance. If so, then you'll want to hire one of our Garmin InReach Explorer+ Iridium devices. Iridium is the world’s furthest reaching satellite network that provides 100 percent global coverage with no fringe zones or blackout areas.
We hire our inReach Mini, Mini 2 and Explorer devices. The Mini's have no screen but can connect to your mobile phone for messaging and navigation. The Explorer devices are full-featured GPS tracking devices, but are also packed with lots of extra features to keep your expedition safe and in-contact. With inReach satellite technology, your expedition members can send and receive messages, as well as track and share their journey.
InReach is certainly superior to the other popular devices such as SPOT trackers in many ways. InReach 2-way communication technology allows your expedition members to send and receive messages and emails from group leaders, family, friends and the search & rescue service— so you’re continually updated. They also feature weather reports.
If you encounter risky situation in a remote location or offshore, inReach quickly becomes the most valuable tool in your expedition survival kit. It provides global, interactive SOS capabilities — and that means the group are able to trigger a distress signal. Receive a delivery confirmation and get in touch with GEOS emergency monitoring centre by 2-way text conversation and receive professional advice on what to do and confirmation that help is on the way GEOS is standing by 24/7 to assist with your emergency, track your expedition location and will stay in communication with you until your situation is resolved. The costs of any rescue are not covered by hiring a device, so ensure you have the right insurance cover!
If required, our explorer devices can also act as Satellite navigation maps because they come pre-loaded with base maps.
