Garmin inReach Satellite Communicator

Capt. Jon Brooks was texting me the other day with some products he needed for the boat when he got back to the boat from Jersey. It was from a new number and in my head I’m thinkin “How is he texting me I thought he was on his was from Charleston?” so I asked...

His reply: “It’s my Inreach I’m running from Charleston”

As I was trying to figure out what products we were going to promote for our 20 days of christmas sale the light bulb went off! Day 1 promotion. The perfect stocking stuffer. Later he tells me his wife got it for him for a stocking stuffer last year. Bingo!

I’ve discussed the option of satellite communication on sportfish boats several times several times with captains and the Garmin inReach seemed like a great option. Plus, we love Garmin products as a lot of people do. Any for the money it’s hard to beat at $399. We especially like it because you can get unlimited texting and it pairs with your phone for $64.95 on th monthly freedom plan.

So, here is a perfect stocking stuffer for the captain in your life and maybe thank Capt. Jon for reminding me to do a 20% OFF deal next time you see him!

All of the details are in the product description here but here is a run down of the features we like best...

  • It’s a Handheld Satellite Communicators with GPS Navigation
  • Rugged handheld satellite communicators enable two-way text messaging via 100% global Iridium®satellite network (satellite subscription required)
  • Trigger an interactive SOS to the 24/7 search and rescue monitoring center
  • Track and share your location with family and friends
  • Pair with compatible mobile devices using the free Earthmate® app for access to downloadable maps¹, U.S. NOAA charts, color aerial imagery and more
  • inReach Explorer+ device adds preloaded DeLorme® TOPO maps with onscreen GPS routing plus built-in digital compass, barometric altimeter and accelerometer

  I’ve also attached screenshot here from Garmin to give a run down of the basic plans and cost. They are pretty reasonable especially the freedom plan.
