Small, lightweight, and rugged, Garmin's inReach Mini is perfect for maintaining off-the-grid contact. The palm-sized satellite communicator uses 100% global Iridium satellite coverage for 2-way messaging anywhere in the world. In case of emergency, the interactive SOS allows you to communicate back and forth and receive confirmation that help is on the way. It includes a built-in GPS that enables location tracking, as well as access to downloadable maps, U.S. NOAA charts, color aerial imagery and more by using the free Garmin Earthmate app and compatible devices.

Why Do You Need inReach Mini?

If you hunt or train "away from it all," you need inReach Mini. Lots of people misjudge the reliability of cell phone coverage in remote areas. The reality is that 90% of the earth's surface still lacks consistent cell service. Smartphones frequently do not work in remote areas or extreme weather conditions, and international roaming charges are expensive. inReach Mini helps you stay in touch no matter where your hunting or training takes you.
  • One SOS rescue occurs every day during peak season
  • More than 60 million messages have been sent via inReach communicators
  • inReach communicators are used in over 222 countries and territories
  • Over 75% of the earth's surface has been covered by inReach communicator track points
Unlike many other popular emergency and satcom devices, inReach Mini allows you to receive a delivery confirmation of your SOS distress signal and then communicate back and forth with GEOS, the search and rescue monitoring center. Many other devices can provide you with confirmation that your distress message was sent, but only inReach communicators provide confirmation that your message was actually delivered. You will also be able to receive instructions, get ETA info and answer questions from the experts at GEOS. Plus, you can send and receive messages with your family and friends to keep them informed of your status or to make arrangements on where to meet once you're rescued. If you determine your SOS alert isn't a true emergency, it can easily be canceled in both paired and standalone modes.

Dogs don't dive, but mine loves it when I come home.
March 16, 2022
I'm a scuba diver and went with GunDog because of an earlier experience that went well. This device is ideal for serious outdoor safety. There are better units for casual hiking and even communication. What this device brings is size. It's miniature, tiny... smaller than a pager. It has full two-way communication abilities, like a SAT phone, just no voice. Texts, and a 24/7 two-way SOS button that puts you in direct contact with a rescue representative in case of emergency. It's Garmin. There is also an additional waterproof case (rated to 100m) that makes it ideal for divers. It does require a satellite subscription, mine cost about $150/year. Call in your own rescue, anywhere in the world as long as you can see the sky. There is nothing that compares at 5 times the price. Highly recommend if your adventures are on the edge.
  • Can't be beat for size, and pure safety function.
  • Expensive, needs subscription.

Review for Garmin inReach Mini Satellite Communicator
October 11, 2018
Chukar hunting in Idaho's high desert leads to getting out in some pretty big, remote places and traversing some occasionally challenging terrain. The InReach Mini offers one the ability to freely check out remote places with a little bit of assurance that if things go from good to bad, at least the family will know where to find the dog. Doesn't get much better than that!
