item features

Travel lighter, communicate smarter

Measuring just under 9.9 cm tall by 5.2 cm wide and weighing a mere 100 g, inReach Mini is a comfortable fit for your pocket or backpack. It connects for messaging via the Iridium satellite network, offering seamless 100% Iridium coverage worldwide. You don’t have to worry about being within range of a mobile phone signal or encountering spotty coverage. Your inReach Mini works globally, so you can stay connected.

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 an electronic 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 and aerial imagery. 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 reach them around the world — with fewer keystrokes.

Get weather wherever

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.

Below are all the reviews for this item, the average rating is:

Posted By: David Smith | Fri 14th February 2020

Ive used a SPOT for years, especially in winter, to give my partner peace of mind, especially in winter and especially when travelling alone. The InReach provides this same reassurance, plus the ability to update on changes of plan. In an emergency, it will also provide 2-way communication with rescue services. The only down side is the cost of the monthly contract. Ive chosen the recreation plan with unlimited tracking points costing 30 euros/month - I suspect this will be the most popular plan. Theres a 15 euro/month safety plan if you really only plan to use the InReach in emergencies, and higher level plans if you intend to do a lot of messaging. Very happy with this purchase - will be puting my SPOT on the second hand market! This was my first purchase from GPS training, and I was very impressed by the level of service and will be keen to use them again. The colour I had chosen was out of stock, and they phoned the same day to confirm if I was happy with the alternative. Device arrived well packed the next day with helpful additional instructions provided by GPS Training. Delighted with the whole deal. Thank you for great service. David
