There's a lot to like about the Garmin Overlander. We've narrowed it down to five of our favorite reasons to own this rockin' piece of gear. We'd like to present to you the pros of the Garmin Overlander, (as narrated by Dean and a handful of photobombing squirrels).
What we like:
- The Garmin Overlander is a standalone device. You won't have to juggle multiple apps on your phone while using the Overlander. Just put it in place and let it do it's thing. Your phone is free remain on your favorite playlist while you drive. You can just keep heading down the road and navigating. It allows you to carry while ignoring texts from work and your mother-in-law. Boom. Win.
- It really is a complete kit. Everything you need to make this device work comes right along with it. You get a genuine ram mount, charging cradle, and power cord.
- It's fully integrated. On road navigation? Yep. The Overlander's got it. Off-road navigation? It's got that too. It also features a campsite database from iOverlander. You'll always know just where to stop to get your sleep on.
- Part of the Garmin ecosystem. The Overlander is made to sync with the Garmin InReach Mini which is a small, rugged, lightweight satellite communicator, enabling two-way text messaging via 100% global Iridium® satellite network. Send and receive text messages anywhere in the world, track and share your journey and, if necessary, trigger an SOS alert for 24/7 emergency response. It all adds up to peace of mind and real connectivity.
- It's reasonably sized. It's smaller than tablet and bigger than a phone. It's just right. It doesn't block your visibility of the road, but it's still big enough to read comfortably - the perfect size.
