Garmin inReach Mini 2 Reviews

Terrible set up

By No name.,)

The set up of the device is horrible. The device will not activate even though the phone and computer identifies it’s activated. Worthless. Will be returning. better off with my compass.

Difficult

A family member bought this for my husband. He hikes long distances and we wanted to have some way to keep track and call out emergencies if needed. He is 70 and he walks where there is no phone ability. We worked on this. Put in maps and places he might be able to contact. I set it up and paid, but it does not work. It is too hard to figure it out.

Rugged and reliable

Seems rugged and reliable, good battery life, easy to use. Despite the small monochrome screen, the navigation feature works surprisingly well. Whenever I have the device on indoors, it keeps displaying unable to send message even though I didn't send anything. Still not sure what it's trying to send. Other than that annoyance I've had no issues with it.

Given to me as a gift. Excellent piece of tech for piece of mind out in the field.

Auto Track issues

By DonL
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-13

With the Mini 2 set to Auto Track, the activity track recorded doesn’t contain many bread crumbs even with Activity Recording set to High Density. Manually starting tracking on the unit itself builds a breadcrumb file with 10 times as many points.

Light weight and easy to use

I bought this for use on the Great Divide. It was easy to attach to a feed bag. It kept all my contacts aware of my location and it was easy to send text messages along the route. Great buy.

Hopefully I can figure it out?

Just can't seem to make sense of the features? Finding it hard to configure.

Asked by: James
You will be able to have GPS on the device. You won't have SOS capabilities, messaging, and send intervals. You could track, and mark waypoints though.
