Garmin Rolls out a Small In-Flight Satellite Communicator

Tracking devices can provide immediate help to both airplane pilots as well as families by providing instant information about their location and route. And, with progress in technology, like other electronic devices, these tracking devices are also getting smaller in size. Garmin has recently introduced a tiny, lightweight, multi-function tracking device in the market for in-flight satellite navigation. This device is known as inReach Mini, which is so small that it can easily fit into your pocket and weighs only 3.5 ounces.


The inReach Mini device connects to the Iridium satellite network and provides functions like position tracking, SOS service and enables its user to communicate through two-way text messaging, which is even possible from the far-off places, where regular cell phones don’t work. Additionally, this small navigation unit also provides access to aerial imagery, maps, and NOAA charts even to some weather services.

This tiny device offers the capabilities of communication through different types of compatible products, including Garmin’s pilot app along with a wide range of Garmin smart watches, such as the D2 Charlie, which is specially designed for aviation. Apart from being a good deal for pilots, it is also useful for hunting, mountain biking, hiking, trail running, camping and many other outdoor activities.

inReach Mini comes with an internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts for almost two days when in default 10-minute tracking mode. However, it can last up to 20 days when in the extended 30-minute tracking mode. Although it is a small device, it is quite tough and has a highly durable body.

According to Garmin’s claims, this device can resist extreme environmental conditions as it is impact proof and water resistant too. The inReach Mini device will be made available the next week at a price of 349.99 USD. And, in order to allow the unit to work, customers would also require choosing a satellite subscription plan with a starting price of nearly 15 USD a month.
