From anywhere on the planet, inReach Mini is your go-to connection for maintaining off-the-grid contact. It’s our pocket-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, no matter where your activities may take you. For even more capability and convenience, the free Earthmate app syncs your inReach handheld via Bluethooth with your compatible mobile device so you can access selected maps and aerial imagery.

Jury Statement

The judges feel that this is a real innovation. The Garmin inReach Mini is the smallest pocket/palm-sized satellite communication and emergency device that does not require network coverage of this kind that we have seen.
