The Garmin InReach Mini is a small, lightweight satellite communicator that allows you to stay in touch with friends, family and emergency responders - even when you are in extremely remote areas. 


Something you will appreciate when renting through Gear Shack is that we provide 'unlimited' plans for our InReach units.  No more worrying about which data plan to purchase ahead of a trip,  counting messages or expensive overage charges.  Just focus on your adventure!


If desired, Gear Shack also offers to set up the unit for you prior to shipping.  If you select this option, we will send you a short form to fill out with desired settings, contact information and any preset messages you'd like to store.  We'll then sync your unit so that once it arrives, you can focus on enjoying your adventure - not worrying about setting up your communicator.
