Global Two-Way Messaging

Send and receive messages anywhere in the world even when out of mobile range with inReach Mini.  There are two ways to message using the device, the quickest way is to send a preset message (e.g. I’m ok or Heading home).  Alternatively to type a custom message you can use a paired smartphone to access the Garmin Earthmate app which allows access to a QWERTY keyboard.

You can send messages to an email address or mobile phone number from the inReach Mini, however in our experience messaging to email tends to be the most reliable method.

SOS assistance anywhere in the world

In the event that you get into a dangerous situation and need to call for assistance inReach can help.  When you press the SOS button on the side of the inReach Mini your GPS co-ordinates will be sent to the GEOS Emergency Response 

Center – a world leader in emergency response solutions and monitoring. GEOS will send a message to you to try to obtain further information on the situation.  They also have access to your preset emergency contacts and will contact them for further info on what you are doing.  Once the SOS button is pushed your co-ordinates will be automatically transmitted 

GEOS work with emergency services worldwide and using your co-ordinates they will work with appropriate organisations to get help.  They will not abandon the case until they are certain you are safe. every 2 minutes until the SOS is cancelled.
