Syncing Data Using Your Computer

NOTE: This section applies to devices with inReach® technology. Other Garmin® devices can sync their Garmin Explore™ data using the mobile app.

After you select a map or make edits to your data, such as contacts, preset messages, or quick text messages, you must sync them to your device using the inReach Sync desktop application and the USB cable. The device requires the desktop application to update maps and device firmware. You can sync other updates using the mobile app.

  1. Connect the USB cable to your device and your computer.
  2. From the plans and devices tab, click Sync.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions.
