The Garmin inReach Mini Handheld Outdoor GPS is a lightweight and compact satellite communicator. The Garmin inReach Mini is your go-to connection for maintaining contact off-the-grid. It's Garmin's palm-sized satellite communicator for adventures where weight and size matter. The inReach Mini Handheld GPS lets you send and receive text messages, track and share your journey, and trigger an SOS alert to contact the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team. With Garmin inReach connectivity, your family and friends will know they can stay in touch globally.
Travel Lighter, Communicate Smarter: Measuring in at just under 4'' tall by 2'' wide and weighing a mere 3.5 oz, the Garmin inReach Mini is fit for exterior pack pockets or accessory loops. It connects for messaging via the 100% global Iridium satellite network. Don't stress about being within range of a cell tower or encountering spotty coverage. Your inReach Mini works anywhere.
Multiple Ways to Connect: Wireless unit-to-unit connectivity allows you to remotely control the handheld inReach Mini to send and receive messages using compatible Garmin handhelds, wearables or other mobile devices. GPS-based location tracking lets you share your whereabouts with those out in the field or at home. For basic navigation, there's a compass that shows bearing and distance along a route or to a waypoint. You can also post your adventures on social media.
Who will answer your SOS? GEOS will: GEOS are the world leader in emergency response solutions and monitoring. They've supported rescues in more than 140 countries, saving many lives in the process. They're standing by 24/7 to respond to your SOS, track your device and notify the proper contacts and emergency responders in your area. Once you've triggered a distress signal, you can expect a delivery confirmation that help is on the way and continual updates on your response team's status.
Rugged, Robust inReach: Tough, durable, impact resistant (MIL-STD-810F) and water-rated to IPX7, Garmin inReach Mini is built to keep you up and running. It includes an internal, rechargeable lithium battery for up to 50 hours of use at the default 10-minute tracking mode and up to 20 days in power saving mode. Recharge via the provided microUSB power cable or optional in-vehicle 12-V charger.
Pair with Your Mobile Device: For even more convenience and capability, the free Earthmate app syncs your inReach handheld via Bluetooth wireless technology with your compatible Android or iOS mobile device so you can access unlimited maps, aerial imagery and U.S. NOAA charts. Earthmate also allows you to conveniently use all of the inReach features on your paired mobile device. For easier messaging, you can also access your phone's contact list from the Earthmate app to connect with fewer keystrokes.
Get Weather on the Go: The optional inReach weather forecast service provides detailed updates directly to your inReach Mini or compatible device paired with the Earthmate app, so you'll know what conditions to expect on your journey. Basic and premium weather packages are offered. And you can request weather forecasts for your current location or any other waypoint or destination on your itinerary.
Includes Unlimited Cloud Storage and Trip Planning: Every inReach device comes with free access to the cloud-powered Garmin Explore website to plan your trips with routes and waypoints, create preset messages and quick texts, sync and manage your device settings, store all your location tracking data, link your social media accounts, update your firmware and much more.
Pair with Garmin Pilot: In the aviation world, inReach Mini becomes a valuable air communications link. When paired via Bluetooth to a compatible tablet or smartphone running the Garmin Pilot app, your inReach Mini makes it easy to send and receive text messages while in the cockpit, even from areas without cellular reception. The app pulls in your smart device's contact lists, so access is simple and seamless. And since your inReach Mini is also a handheld GPS, Garmin Pilot can leverage its rock-solid position source to drive a georeferenced aircraft position symbol on your tablet's moving map display. Additionally, inReach Mini can provide tracking of your flight for your followers on the ground, using the web-based MapShare page created for your inReach account. You can also link via Twitter or Facebook.
Additional Aviation Services: Your inReach Mini is also 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). If you register for ACAS information, alerts provided via LMFS prompt you to call for an abbreviated briefing to address any specific adverse condition situation that might affect your flight-planned routing. Likewise, automatic monitoring provided by the SE-SAR service enables the system to identify potential flight emergency situations and/or signals to promptly initiate search and rescue procedures for your aircraft.
Flexible Satellite Airtime Plans: To access the Iridium network and communicate with your inReach Mini, an active satellite subscription is required. Depending on your usage level, you can opt for an annual contract package or a flexible month-to-month airtime plan.
