  • Compact Communication!
    Reviewed by pnwhiker1 - April 10, 2022

    I’m still getting used to the differences on the Mini2 from the Explorer. I swapped out - don’t own a computer and sending a text on the Explorer. Luckily the Explore App makes sending a text on the Mini2 a breeze! Set up and updates are able to be done without a computer, also a plus! Screens on the Mini2 are a challenge to navigate and some features are only available on the device itself. Coordinates are no longer linked to the map, so you also have to set up map share. It’s a learning process. I think for the purpose of it I think I’ll like the Mini2 despite the monochrome screen (difficult to see in low light) and limited capabilities. Give it a try - everyone needs a similar 11th essential in their gear!

    I bought this a month ago and it has been the best choice for a compact Tool for Communication, Navigation & Safety.

  • Great piece of equipment
    Reviewed by dkolcinski - May 3, 2022

    I've long adventured off grid without any back up. I just took it for granted that everything would work out. But I've gotten a few more gray hairs, and with them some more wisdom. I think we owe it to our families and friends to take responsibility for our adventures. Along with basic self-rescue and first aid skills and equipment, I think this is an essential piece of equipment that everyone should carry. Easy interface via Garmin Explore app, long battery life, lightweight and small size - there is always a reason and plenty room for this in your pack. Get one now, and don't forget to practice with it ahead of time before you go.

  • Great piece of gear, in a tiny package !
    Reviewed by Pelagic - February 27, 2022

    I had the mini, really liked it and upgraded to the mini 2 and love it. The extended battery life and capabilities when paired with your iPhone are amazing for anyone traveling off the grid. I’m heading to the arctic circle in two weeks and a suggestion for the Garmin product development folks. In extreme cold temperatures, the unit must be kept inside my coat(s) effecting the signal. If you can, develop a wire antenna that can go on the outside of my parka

  • Learning Curve
    Reviewed by Pilgrim - May 9, 2022

    I purchased an inReach mini2 for my through hike on the Appalachian Trail (AT). I have made several shakedown hikes and I took the mini2 on my most recent hike to test it out and become familiar with it. I had trouble determining if / when a message was actually sent and ended up sending a couple of messages twice. I like the fact that you can have preset messages and a contact list set for those messages. I look forward to getting more familiar and comfortable of the features. Overall the mini2 will be an asset to me on the trail from a safety perspective and will compliment the FAROUT APP on my phone.
