    If the Activate button is not there, your device is already activated.

  5. Enter the 9-digit one-time code also displayed on the Activation page. This code is unique to your activation and only valid for 24 hours. Only enter the 9-digit one-time code in your message – do not enter other information. The inReach system will likely also enter your Garmin account name and your current location. Our service expects this information and will remove this information before verifying your one-time code.

  6. Double-check the phone number and one-time code you entered in your message to ensure your activation is successful. Once you have provided the correct numbers, send your message. Your inReach device will need a clear view of the sky to send the message. It may also take several minutes for your message to be delivered to the Iridium satellite network.

  7. Once our service has received and verified your activation message, we will send your inReach device a message confirming it was successfully activated. The message may take several minutes to be delivered to your inReach device, so please be patient. Since the message will be delivered using the Iridium satellite network, your device needs a clear view of the sky. Sometimes, it may take longer, so don’t be alarmed if your confirmation message isn’t received after a few minutes. Wait an hour or so before resending the message or contacting our team.

  8. You can now visit the Device page on your account to confirm your inReach device has been activated. The Activate button you used earlier to activate your inReach device will no longer be displayed after a successful activation. This is a perfect time to ensure your inReach device is Enabled. It was enabled by default when you added it to your account.

Congratulations! You will now receive safety alerts, including severe weather alerts, delivered directly to your Zoleo device based on your current location, wherever your adventures take you.
