Yes! Sign up for the free Earthmate® app and you’ll get more capability and convenience.

Plus, Earthmate allows you to use all of the inReach features on your paired mobile device.

The inReach Mini requires a satellite plan instead of a data plan to ensure it works in remote locations. Garmin offers two satellite airtime plans: the Annual Commitment Plan and the Freedom Plan. The Annual Commitment Plan is ideal for consistent users with SOS capability providing ongoing peace of mind. It’s a 12-month locked-in contract with lower monthly fees ranging from $11.95 to $79.95 per month. The Freedom Plan pays for airtime per month with plans ranging from $14.95 to $99.95 per month.
