inReach Mini is your go-to connection for maintaining  off-the-grid contact. It’s our palm-sized satellite communicator for  adventures where size and weight matter. inReach Mini lets you send and  receive text messages, track and share your journey and, if necessary,  trigger an SOS alert to contact the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team.  With inReach connectivity, your family and friends will know they can stay in touch globally.    

Travel Lighter, Communicate Smarter

Measuring just under 4” tall by 2” wide and weighing a mere 3.5 oz,  inReach Mini is fit for exterior pack pockets or accessory loops. It  connects for messaging via the 100% global Iridium satellite network.  You don’t have to worry about being within range of a cell tower or  encountering spotty coverage.        

Who will answer your SOS? GEOS will.

GEOS is the world leader in emergency response solutions and  monitoring. They’ve supported rescues in more than 140 countries, saving  many lives in the process. And 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 be  continually updated on the status of your response team.        

Multiple Ways to Connect

Wireless unit-to-unit connectivity lets you remotely control 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 at home or out in the field. You can  also post your adventures on social media. For basic navigation, there’s  a compass that shows bearing and distance along a route or to a  waypoint.        

Pair with Your Mobile Device

For even more capability and convenience, the free Earthmate app syncs your inReach handheld via Bluetooth® wireless technology with your compatible Apple®  or Android™ device so you can access unlimited maps, aerial imagery and  U.S. NOAA charts. Plus, Earthmate 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.     

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. Also, for your followers on the ground, inReach Mini can  provide tracking of your flight, using the web-based MapShare™ page  created for your inReach account. You can also link via Facebook® or Twitter®. 

Additional Aviation Services

Your inReach Mini is also a supported device for the Leidos Flight  Services 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.    

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 en route.  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.        

Rugged, Robust inReach

Tough, durable, impact resistant (MIL-STD-810F) and water-rated to IPX7,  inReach Mini is built to keep you up and running. It includes an  internal, rechargeable lithium battery for up to 50 hours’ use at the  default 10-minute tracking mode and up to 20 days in power saving mode. Recharge via the microUSB power cable or optional in-vehicle 12-V charger.     

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 flexible month-to-month airtime plan. 

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, update your firmware, link your social media accounts, store  all your location tracking data and much more.  The Bluetooth word mark and logos are  registered trademarks owned by Bluetooth SIG, Inc. and any use of such  marks by Garmin is under license.
