For those of you wanting peace of mind when you're hiking, boating, out of reach of a cell tower or otherwise in the back of beyond - Garmin has announced the inReach Mini, a new addition to its family of satellite communicators.
Of course, when trekking through the wilderness you need something that's small and that has the same level of endurance as you. Measuring just under 4” tall by 2” wide and weighing 3.5 oz, inReach Mini is an easy fit for exterior pack pockets or accessory loops.
Battery life shouldn't be a problem either with various modes to match your endurance challenge:
Other features include:
To access the Iridium network and communicate with your inReach Mini, an active satellite subscription is required. Depending on your usage level, you can opt for an annual contract package or flexible month-to-month airtime plan.
Monthly plans start from £12.99/$11.95/14.99€
For even more capability and convenience, the free Earthmate app syncs your inReach handheld via Bluetooth wireless technology with your compatible Apple or Android device so you can access unlimited maps, aerial imagery, and U.S. NOAA charts. Plus, Earthmate allows you to conveniently use all of the inReach features on your paired mobile device. For easier messaging, you can also access your phone’s contact list from the Earthmate app to connect with fewer keystrokes.
The inReach Mini will be available in the 2nd quarter 2018 for £299.99/$349.99/349.99€
I think flat earthers should dig through to the bottom to free the rest of us from our ignorance. They don't have to fall though, they can tie a rope to their belt!
An extremely practical device. Compact too, which is nice.
You and me both, not sure if the nutter is trolling or is really that deluded.
