Product Reviews

Would never venture into the back country or above tree line with an inreach. They work exactly as described and the response from search and rescue is adopt immediate as we once accidentally pressed the sos button

Garmin inReach is the go to GPS communicator, and the mini has the best features of their larger devices in a smaller size. With a built in SOS function, it provides peace of mind outside of cell service that someone is going to answer the call the moment you need it most. The 2 way communication is invaluable to giving trip updates and checking in with those at home, it also allows you to directly communicate with emergency services to give details about your situation. Tracking, messaging, weather updates, and waypoints can all be sent on the device itself, it’s only downside is that to use the GPS you’ll need to pair it with a phone. However, if you would carry your phone anyways, the smaller size is worth the slight inconvenience. I never leave home without it.
