This compact satellite communicator1 helps you keep home with you when you’re off the grid — adding peace of mind to every adventure, without adding weight to your pack.
Global satellite coverage keeps you connected when cellphones can’t.
In an emergency, send an interactive SOS message to our coordination center.
You can still connect to the ones who matter, even without cellphone coverage.
With TracBack® routing, find your way back if you happen to get lost.
Expand the capabilities of your inReach device by using the Garmin Explore™ app.
Stay on adventures longer with up to 14 days of battery life in 10-minute tracking mode.
Exchange text messages with loved ones back home, post to social media, or communicate inReach to inReach in the field.
In case of emergency, trigger an interactive SOS message to the Garmin IERCC, a 24/7 staffed emergency response coordination center.
Share your location with loved ones back home at any time using your MapShare™ page or with your coordinates embedded in your messages.
Instead of relying on cellphone coverage, your messages, SOS alerts and location tracking are transferred via the global Iridium® satellite network.
To access the Iridium network and communicate with your inReach Mini 2, an active satellite subscription is required. You can opt for an annual package or a flexible month-to-month plan.
Don’t let the 4” x 2” size and 3.5 oz weight fool you. inReach Mini 2 is tough, durable, impact resistant (MIL-STD-810) and water-rated to IPX7.
The TracBack routing feature navigates you back to your starting point the same way you came, should you get lost — right on your device.
Get accurate heading information — even when you’re not moving.
The internal, rechargeable lithium battery gives you up to 14 days use at the default 10-minute tracking mode and up to 30 days with a 30-minute tracking interval.
Get detailed weather updates on inReach Mini 2 or a paired compatible device. You can even request forecasts for your current location or other waypoints or destinations on your itinerary.
Get free access to the cloud-powered Garmin Explore website on your computer to plan your trips, create preset messages and quick texts, sync and manage your device settings, and much more.
Sync with the Garmin Explore website or the mobile app on your compatible smartphone for navigation, waypoints, courses, activities and collections. Also get access to trip planning and topographical mapping.
Remotely control inReach Mini 2 to send and receive messages, start and stop tracking, and trigger an interactive SOS using compatible Garmin handhelds, wearables or other mobile devices.
Pair with the Garmin Pilot app to easily send and receive text messages from the cockpit — even without cellular reception. The app can use the inReach Mini 2 device’s GPS position and location sharing abilities for your flight.
