Explore® Web App

When you activate your inReach with any Standard plan, you get access to the Explore web app where you can manage your inReach account, plan your trips and share your adventures with others.

Unlimited Cloud Storage and Trip Planning

Every inReach device comes with free access to the Explore web app. It is a cloud-powered portal where you can manage your monthly service, plan your trips with routes and waypoints, create pre-set messages and quick texts, sync and manage your device settings, update your firmware, download additional TOPO maps, link your social media accounts, store all your location tracking data and much more. You can even choose from multiple languages, including English and French!

Track and Share Your Whereabouts

Turn on the tracking function of your inReach SE®+ or Explorer®+ and let family and friends follow you on their computers or mobile devices using the web-based MapShare® portal. The inReach device will send waypoints at pre-selected time intervals, and you can invite people back home to use MapShare to ping your inReach device, see your GPS location, track your movements and exchange messages during your trip. You can even embed your MapShare page on a blog, website or social media.

The inReach system is my critical link to the rest of the world.
