    Using the InReach features – sending/receiving messages, tracking, etc. uses data (navigation features – breadcrumbs, routes, etc. do not use data)

    Your rental includes 1,000 bytes of data to use for any feature.
    Over 1,000 bytes, you will be charged $0.01 (1 penny) per byte.
    If you think you may use much larger data quantities we offer pre-paid discounted data blocks of 5,000 ($30 vs overage cost of $40) and 10,000 bytes ($55 vs overage cost of $90). Available during the booking process.
    The included 1,000 byte allowance should be enough to send daily preset “I’m OK messages”

    Using the 2 way texting and tracking features uses more data – but it won’t cost much to take full advantage of the great features and we don’t charge for SOS usage at all!

  • Preset Text: 15 bytes
  • Tracking signal: 13 bytes per track
  • Tracking interval change: 17 bytes
