Garmin inReach Mini overview

  • 1Description

You'll have peace of mind while off the grid with the black Garmin inReach Mini Satellite Communicator. With a paid subscription, you can send and receive texts from anywhere in the world via the Iridium global satellite service. If there's a problem, you can send an SOS to the 24/7 GEOS emergency response service, which will dispatch local first responders to your aid.

The device is a GPS navigator with compass and bearing capabilities, basic grid waypoint marking and breadcrumb trails, and sophisticated on-map guidance. You can remotely control the inReach Mini to send and receive messages using compatible Garmin handhelds, wearables, or other mobile devices; share GPS-based information on your whereabouts; sync with your smartphone to access unlimited maps, aerial imagery and U.S. NOAA charts (along with your phone's contacts list), and get detailed weather information on the go, on a basic or premium basis. Aviators can pair the inReach Mini with a smartphone or tablet running the Garmin Pilot app for communication and to drive a geo-referenced aircraft position symbol on your tablet's moving map display, as well as provide tracking of your flight to your followers on the ground. The inReach Mini is a supported device for the Lockheed Martin Flight Services (LMFS) Adverse Condition Alerting Service (ACAS), Surveillance-Enhanced Search and Rescue (SE-SAR), and Enhanced Special Reporting Services (eSRS).

Satellite subscription plans range from $11.95 to $99.95 per month.

Compact, Lightweight & Weather-Resistant
The inReach Mini measures just 3.9 x 2.0" and weighs just 3.5 ounces. Rated IPX7, it can withstand rain, snow, and splashing.
Off the Grid, But Still in Touch
No need for a cell signal—the inReach Mini uses the global Iridium satellite service, so you can send and receive messages anywhere.
SOS Capability
You can reach the GEOS emergency response service if trouble arises. The 24/7 service, which has supported rescues in more than 140 countries, alerts local authorities and first responders to come to your aid.
GPS Navigation
Tracking, routes, waypoints, compass, and location features help you find your way during your adventures.
Sync the inReach Mini with your phone and use the Earthmate app to access unlimited maps, aerial imagery, and U.S. NOAA charts. Earthmate allows you to use all of the inReach features on your paired mobile device and to use your phone's contact list.
Garmin Pilot and Aviation Services
The Garmin Pilot app provides satellite messaging and positioning. Also, the inReach Mini is a supported device for the Lockheed Martin Flight Services (LMFS) Adverse Condition Alerting Service (ACAS), Surveillance-Enhanced Search and Rescue (SE-SAR), and Enhanced Special Reporting Services (eSRS). You'll get alerts to adverse conditions and automatic monitoring.
Weather on the Go
Basic and premium weather alert packages are available. You can receive weather forecasts for your current location or any other waypoint or destination on your itinerary.
Up to 50 Hours Runtime

    Garmin inReach Mini reviews

    inReach Mini Satellite Communicator (Black) (Satellite Subscription Required) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product - recommended I was lucky enough to receive a Garmin inReach Mini from the first batch that made it to B&H. I've been testing the unit for the past month in advance of a trip to fairly remote areas of South America. I am traveling on my own and want to have some sort of reliable communication while in areas without cell coverage. I'm a ham operator and could have brought portable gear with me - but applying for local operating licenses plus the uncertainties of shortwave communication made that option unattractive. The inReach mini is very small - it easily fits in a shirt pocket - and is very light. Its interface is reminiscent of units from the late 1990s, but it appears to reliably interface with my iPhone. I would imagine that I would actually compose a message on the Mini only if my iPhone were to fail, as the interface to compose text messages is cumbersome. I would recommend purchasing the unit and getting used to it before a trip, as there are certain aspects to which one needs to get accustomed. While one nominally has an e-mail address associated with the unit, it can receive e-mails or texts only through a web portal (where you can provide others an address and a password) or in response to a message that you have sent. I view this as a positive - no spam. In practice, I find that it takes a couple of minutes for a message to be transmitted - so you likely won't be communicating in real time. That said, I would rather wait five minutes for my message to go through than to be without communication. Garmin states that the MIni has a battery life of approximately fifty hours. Based on my limited experience, this seems optimistic. In ten hours of use, with the unit sharing my location to the cloud every ten minutes, my battery went from 90% to 38%. I plan on carrying a spare battery to provide backup power to both my phone and the micro USB-equipped inReach Mini. In all, I am very pleased with my purchase and enthusiastically recommend the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it should at a fraction of the size and weight Great little device for backcountry safety and family peace of mind. Small, fits in the palm of you hand. Light weight at only 3.5 ounces. Seems sturdy, handy carabiner clip to attach to a pack strap or belt. It paired effortlessly with my smart phone, which is really what makes this device easier to use and adds the ability to use maps through their app. However, I did test the unit without the cell connection and it works great, just is time consuming to manually type in text. The great thing is you can pre-program a bunch of text messages to cover most situations so all you have to do is select the message. You will need a computer to access the Inreach website to type out those messages then link the device to your USB port with the provided cable to manually synch the device. Yes, you will need to pick a plan in order for it to work. Bring your patience when activating the device if you are buying shortly after release, there activation que is long at the moment. It took 4 hours for me to complete the process and one call to customer service, who were great. Overall, this is the device I have been waiting for and I am pleased with the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Functional Pairs easily with my phone and runs well with the Earthmate app. I've taken it on a few backcountry excursions and find it very light and easy to use.
