BreakdowninReach 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.
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. Your inReach Mini works anywhere.
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.
Purchased before my 2020 backcountry CO elk hunting trip! I was off grid with no cell service. This allowed me to stay in touch with my wife and our other 2 man hunting team! Easy to use! Everyone should have one!

So far not as impressed as the full size unit. Activation on this took a full day- it kept saying to get a clear view of the sky. It was on a fence post in the middle of a wide open field.... After activation seems to work fine but will see how it does in thick timber.
Backcountry must have!
I still haven’t used it a ton, but it seems like even the slightest coverage makes it difficult to get a message out or to receive one. I hunt mostly in western Oregon for blacktail. Even standing in the middle of a logging road in timber is not enough space some times. But with that being said it still works when you have clearing and I’d much rather have it than not have it. And it makes the family feel a ton better knowing I’m still alive each day.
