Garmin inReach + | How do I initiate an S.O.S rescue with my inReach?

Last Updated: Aug 13, 2019 09:55AM IST
NOTE: While in S.O.S mode, the status bar is red and the device cannot be turned off.

inReach SOS

  1. Lift the protective cap (1) from the S.O.S key (2)
  2. Hold the S.O.S key.
  3. Wait for the S.O.S countdown.  The device sends a default message to the emergency response service with details about your location.
  4. Reply to the confirmation message from the emergency response service.

Your reply lets the emergency response service know that you are capable of interacting with them during the rescue.

For the first 10 minutes of your rescue, an updated location is sent to the emergency response service every minute. To conserve battery power after the first 10 minutes, an updated location is sent every 10 minutes when moving, and every 30 minutes when stationary.
