The InReach is advertised to deliver global two-way satellite text messaging, delivery confirmations, SOS features, remote tracking and an Android smartphone interface. The global connectivity is driven by the Iridium 9602 short-burst transceiver.

Used as a standalone unit, the InReach can send pre-loaded text messages to defined recipients and activate remote tracking, so others can follow online. Delivery confirmations and SOS signaling are features using it as a standalone unit.

Paired with an Android smartphone or the DeLorme Earthmate PN-60w, the full features are available including two-way text messaging to mobile phones and e-mail addresses. Social media integration with Facebook and Twitter is a feature.
