Recommended Posts


New out from Garmin is this new "Mini" inReach satellite tracker.  Review:



Core things this device will do from this review

– Satellite messaging to friends/family/pizza delivery folks, even if not on service
– Sends GPS track/map of where you’ve been/are every 2 minutes
– Can overlay planned route as well for GPS tracking web link
– Has quick preset messages, as well as longer custom presets
– Can type out long satellite messages (very slowly) just like real text messages
– Has SOS button, which will ultimately result in government rescue services
– Has 50-hour battery life with sending updates via satellite every 10 minutes
– Has 20-day battery life with updates every 30 minutes
– Can be paired to Fenix 5 series and Forerunner 935 watches
– Basic waypoint navigation/saving using compass-style display
– Can use paired phone app (without cellular service) to send complex messages/details
