10 reviews for Garmin inReach Mini 2

  1. 5 out of 5

    David Davies

    I really like my inReach mini, bought one just a couple of weeks ago now and I have synced it with my Fenix GPS watch and love it, it just gives me that bit of extra security when out on my own. Nice and easy to set up and the battery life is truly brilliant and it also looks great.

  2. 5 out of 5

    Terry Skene

    This has been a great device to provide that extra layer of safety when off grid, I do lots of winderness camping and bought it for the extra security this device would give me.

    And if things go sideways at home, I’m reachable through my inReach via text. The battery life isn’t quite what I’d like (I’d got 2 days left on with bluetooth and without tracking), but I’m also not keen on being super available to everyone when off grid, so I started to just turn it off for most of the day. I only turn in on when I’m sending an “I’m ok” text, need backup navigation, or need tracking. I haven’t used the tracking features much on this because I have a fenix watch I use for this, so prefer to keep this battery for a real emergency. I figure if something happens, I can turn it on and then trigger SOS, though a friend mentioned that keeping tracking active might be a good idea if something happens to incapacitate me and I can’t trigger SOS – at least the lack of moving tracking points might tip off my family or friends.

    Allan Irvine

    Bought this for only one reason; the SOS function, a bit of reassurance when I have not got a mobile phone signal when walking on my own. Surely the other features this device offers are nice and I will use some of them.

    Walking around my area the inreach mini shows movement, elevation, rate of travel speed and several other choices which might/could be useful. The small size and weight are very beneficial, especially with me carrying a 40-pound rucksack on a multiple day hike.

    It appears as well built, very rugged, very water resistant, compact and lightweight.

    My 5 rating might not be warranted but until I can find a reason to not rate it a 5 I will continue to rate it a 5.

    Very good value and great service from Outdoor GPS for the Garmin Inreach Mini. It arrived quickly and the included set up instructions were useful. I’ve not used the Inreach Mini properly yet (haven’t been off grid in lockdown!) but the set up and activation were intuitive, and linking it to my phone and Fenix 6X watch was easy. I successfully tested the texting service. As for the capabilities of the Inreach Mini, they are reviewed well elsewhere. Very happy with my purchase, and Outdoor GPS easily deserve 5 stars.

    So far so good. I have tested it as a tracking device and works well. Luckily I have not had to use the SOS function.
