Garmin inReach Mini 2


Video | What’s Included | Specs | Pictures

Communication is key. Garmin’s inReach satellite messaging service is one of the most robust, simple, and time-tested communication networks on the planet. The inReach Mini 2 can send text messages to any phone number, emails to any address, or direct messages to any other InReach device. In addition to basic two-way messaging, Garmin also runs a global response dispatch service, which you can reach anytime using the dedicated SOS button on the device. This will put you in contact with an entire team of coordinators who maintain a network of global first responders and have a track record of over 10,000 rescues worldwide.

With the ability to call for weather reports or automatically send your location to different contacts at specified intervals, the inReach Mini 2 is one of the most full-featured satellite communication devices on the market, and using the Iridium quick burst text messaging system, it is also highly affordable. You will need a yearly or monthly subscription to cover your messages, tracking data, and the emergency SOS service. The device connects to your phone using Bluetooth, where it works with the Garmin Messenger and Explorer apps, allowing you to save offline maps of the area where you will be. Inreach messengers will also connect to other Garmin devices, such as automotive screens, motorcycle and off-road navigators, and smartwatches.

The inReach Mini 2 does not include the Spine Adapter to use with other Garmin accessories or mounts. You can find that HERE.
