Home is closer than you think with Garmin inReach Mini 2. At just 3.5 oz., this compact satellite communicator adds peace of mind to your adventures without adding weight to your pack.

Packed with all the life saving and messaging capabilities of its predecessor, the inReach Mini 2 adds improved GPS reception and a longer battery life. By tapping into the power of Iridium’s® satellite constellation, you can send and receive text messages and emails anywhere on the planet, staying connected even where there’s no phone coverage. Should things take a turn for the worse, a dedicated SOS button lets you call for help, no matter where you are. The upgraded GPS chipset allows improved navigation to pre-set waypoints and breadcrumb style routing. If you get turned around on a hike, TracBack® has you covered, displaying an onscreen path that will take you right back to the trailhead. The onboard GPS also helps you stay connected, imbedding your location with each message, letting your followers track your adventures. When paired with the free Garmin Explore® app you can use your phone to plan trips, access topographical maps, create waypoints and then sync routes to your Mini.
