Text Messages – any that you send and receive using an inReach or via Earthmate on a companion device.

Preset Messages – short, commonly-used messages that are set up in your account and pre-loaded to your inReach ahead of time.

Location Pings – when you provide a link to your MapShare page for others to view your location, they can also proactively “ping” your inReach to see your location between routine tracking intervals. This provides peace of mind to anyone wanting to get a location update from your inReach device without waiting on the next tracking update.
