Garmin inReach Mini GPS Satellite Communicator

Spending time off the grid for a camping trip can be quite an adventure. But doing so does not necessarily mean you really need to block yourself out from the real world. After all, you still need a means of communication to assure your safety at some level. It pays to have an emergency communication system on hand like the Garmin inReach Mini GPS Satellite Communicator.

The Garmin inReach Mini GPS Satellite Communicator is a small, lightweight, and durable satellite communicator that allows sending text messages using the global Iridium satellite network. It offers you a means of communication when you are off the grid where cellular phone signals are non-existent.

In case of emergencies, you can also use it to trigger an interactive SOS to a search and rescue monitoring center that operates 24/7. Through this device, you can also access downloadable maps, charts, and aerial imagery while using the free Garmin Earthmate app and other compatible devices.

The Garmin inReach Mini GPS Satellite Communicator also allows you to receive and send inReach messages through compatible Garmin devices you might also have brought with you such as handhelds and wearables. It also acts like a handheld GPS receiver that will allow you to locate as well as navigate your way to safety using other compatible Garmin devices.

In such a small, easy-to-carry profile, the Garmin inreach Mini offers a valuable answer to your communication worries whenever you go on an off-the-grid adventure. Bear in mind that using the device as a communicator requires a separate subscription to a satellite network. It is available on Amazon for around $300.
