The inReach Mini is a compact satellite communicator that allows for off-grid communication. It has a small, durable design and is lightweight, making it perfect for adventures where size and weight are a concern. The device uses the global Iridium network (with a satellite subscription) to send and receive text messages, track and share your location, and trigger an SOS alert for emergency response. It also has Bluetooth capabilities and can be paired with the Garmin Earthmate app for access to maps and aerial imagery. Additionally, an optional weather forecast service is available. It’s important to note that some jurisdictions may regulate or prohibit the use of satellite communication devices, it’s the user’s responsibility to be aware of and follow all applicable laws.
