Pairing Your Phone and Activating the Device
Before you can use the inReach® features of your device, including messaging, SOS, tracking, and inReach Weather, you must activate it.
The inReach device works best when it is paired with the Garmin Messenger™ app. The app allows you to compose and send messages using your phone, and to sync contacts and check-in messages with your device.
- Turn on the inReach device.
- Bring your compatible phone within 10 m (33 ft.) of your device.
- From the app store on your phone, download the Garmin Messenger app, and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the pairing process.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to activate a service plan.
After the devices are paired, they connect automatically when they are turned on and within Bluetooth® range.
