inReach Mini is the new global satellite tracker from Garmin which fits in the palm of your hand.
Stay in touch via the worldwide Iridium satellite network - send two way emails and SMS messages, make use of basic navigation features and in a worst case scenario call for SOS assistance.
Send and receive messages anywhere in the world even when out of mobile range with inReach Mini. There are two ways to message using the device, the quickest way is to send a preset message (e.g. I’m ok or Heading home). Alternatively to type a custom message you can use a paired smartphone to access the Garmin Earthmate app which allows access to a QWERTY keyboard.
You can send messages to an email address or mobile phone number from the inReach Mini, however in our experience messaging to email tends to be the most reliable method.
In the event that you get into a dangerous situation and need to call for assistance inReach can help. When you press the SOS button on the side of the inReach Mini your GPS co-ordinates will be sent to the GEOS Emergency Response Center – a world leader in emergency response solutions and monitoring. GEOS will send a message to you to try to obtain further information on the situation. They also have access to your preset emergency contacts and will contact them for further info on what you are doing. Once the SOS button is pushed your co-ordinates will be automatically transmitted
GEOS work with emergency services worldwide and using your co-ordinates they will work with appropriate organisations to get help. They will not abandon the case until they are certain you are safe. every 2 minutes until the SOS is cancelled.
Track and share your location with friends, family and colleagues via the Iridium satellite network. inReach Mini track points can be sent manually or automatically at pre-defined intervals of 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 minutes. The tracking info is transmitted to your online MapShare page, a page unique to you where contacts can view your progress and send messages to your device.
inReach Mini is the first inReach to be compatible with a selected range of Garmin watches. This feature allows you to send and receive messages through the watch.
inReach Mini also pairs with an iOS or Android device to unlock extra capabilities via the EarthMate app. EarthMate allows you to access downloadable maps and send messages using the mobile device’s keyboard.
This is a great feature for those who need to make important decisions on their journey based on weather.
