Safety and Tracking Features


The safety and tracking features are supplemental features and should not be relied on as a primary method to obtain emergency assistance. The Garmin Connect™ app does not contact emergency services on your behalf.

The Descent™ Mk2i device has safety and tracking features that must be set up with the Garmin Connect app.

To use these features, your device must be connected to the Garmin Connect app using Bluetooth® technology. You can enter emergency contacts in your Garmin Connect account.
