Garmin inReach Messenger Satellite Communicator
Garmin’s just announced a new model in their inReach satellite communicator lineup – the inReach Messenger ($299)
Garmin offers a device that works on its own, or with smartphones to keep users connected, even in the backcountry.
What’s more, it functions on- and off-grid by automatically connecting to Wi-Fi, cellular, or the iridium satellite network.
It can even provide emergency power to dead phones, enabling users to stay in touch with friends and relatives.
