PAIR, SYNC AND SHARE
With Garmin Explore, you can pair your smartphone or tablet with a compatible Garmin device to sync and share data for off-grid adventures. Use downloadable maps for navigation anywhere.
EASY TRIP PLANNING
Plan for your next journey by downloading maps and creating routes on the app. Or access the Garmin Explore website on your computer, then sync the data with your mobile device, and go.
Review and edit your waypoints, tracks, routes and activities in the app’s library. Select and manage items from this page into organized collections for future reference.
The collections list allows you to quickly find all data related to any trip — making it easy to sort and locate the route or location you’re looking for.
The routes you’ve created will automatically sync to your Garmin Explore web account when you’re within cellular or Wi-Fi range, preserving your activity data with cloud storage3.
Download detailed topographic and street maps, color aerial imagery4, USGS quad sheets4 and other navigation aids directly to your compatible mobile device.
Certain inReach enabled devices, such as the GPSMAP® 66i handheld (sold separately), can be paired with Garmin Explore for global messaging through the Iridium® satellite network from your phone or tablet.
In an emergency, an inReach device connection with Garmin Explore lets you trigger an interactive SOS to the GEOS 24/7 emergency response center directly from the app. Satellite location tracking is also available.
PHONE CONTACT LIST
Pairing an inReach enabled device with the Garmin Explore app allows you to access your phone’s contact list for messaging — so you can connect globally with fewer keystrokes.
Bring man’s best friend on the adventure.
REAL-TIME DOG TRACKING
Track up to 20 collars or devices, and see them all in real time on your compatible mobile device.
SAVE YOUR HUNT DATA
You can record and store each hunt in its own collection, which will automatically be saved to the cloud for easy access when you need it.
View your hunt activities or individual dog tracks on your compatible mobile device when you’re done.
CUSTOMIZABLE TRACKING LINES
Change the colors of the tracking lines for each dog based on speed threshold, so you can clearly see when a dog starts the chase.
