Have OER setup the device for me

Won’t have access to a computer to sync your device, or don’t want to worry about getting it setup correctly? Choose this and we’ll send you a simple form (contacts, preset messages, time zone, mapshare settings, etc.) and then setup and sync your InReach for you, so it is 100% ready to go out of the box.
