In November 2017, Garmin introduced Professional Flex plans – a new inReach satellite subscription option designed for teams, organizations and businesses. Professional inReach subscription plans offer additional features that are not available to inReach users with personal monthly Freedom plans or Annual contract plans.
Previously, the only subscription option for professional inReach users was a set of byte-based monthly plans. Professional Flex subscription plans were created to make selecting a plan and managing your usage each month easier. Similar to Freedom plans, Professional Flex plans allow your organization to pay for inReach satellite service only when needed, and you can move up or down a plan for free at any time.
There are four levels of Professional Flex plans that meet the operational needs of your teams or organization.
- Basic plan – Gives users 20 custom text messages, along with access to pay for track points and other features as needed
- Advanced plan – Gives users 40 custom text messages and unlimited track points
- Unlimited plan – Includes unlimited custom text messages, as well as unlimited track points
- Unlimited+ plan – Provides unlimited messaging in addition to faster (2-minute) tracking intervals
