The InReach Mini 2 is a compact satellite communicator that gives you global coverage and keeps you connected to home when your mobile phone cannot. The InReach Mini 2 allows you to exchange text messages with those back home, post on social media, and communicate with other InReach devices in the field. Instead of relying on your mobile phone coverage, your messages will be transferred via the global Iridium satellite network. You can share your location through the MapShare page or via your coordinates embedded in your messages.
If lost, the TracBack routing feature navigates you back to your start point, and in case of emergency, you can trigger an interactive SOS message to Garmin Response - a 24/7 staffed emergency response coordination centre.
The InReach Mini 2 has a digital compass, a great battery life (listed below), a weather forecast service, unlimited cloud storage and free access to the cloud-powered Garmin Explore website. It is lightweight and pocket sized; it has been designed to be tough, durable, impact resistant and water-rated to IPX7.
Please note: To access the Iridium network and communicate with your InReach Mini 2, an active satellite subscription is required. Depending on your usage level, you can opt for an annual contract package or flexible month-to-month airtime plan.
