    Default WANTED: Garmin inReach Mini

    I'm in the market for an inReach Mini, before pulling the trigger on a new one, I'm wondering if anyone has a 2nd hand unit they are willing to part with? Preferably in Gauteng area.

    Thanks.

    Hi NJ, I also want to go the inReach route. Do you think it will be possible to contact your vehicle insurance (eg Tuffstuff) via inReach? May be you have looked into it.....

    Consider the Montana 700 with built in inReach

    Hello Chris, hoop dit gaan goed met julle!

    From what I've read you send a text message via the inReach, an app on your phone or your Overlander. If your broker is available on his cell then your good. I always nominate a person at home, whom I will contact if in an emergency, they would need to try and help from home and provide feedback to me via text.

    I used an inReach in the Middle of the Simpson desert to send my wife a email to let them know I was all good. As I got tricked into a braai by a German traveler and his family and I would arrive in Birdsville a day late. I was stunned how quickly she got the mail and replied. I think it is a great tool for emergencies and just touching base with home. I do many solo motorbike trip and the breadcrumb function giving family updates back home is great. I could not find one for sale in Australia for more than a month as they are very p[popular there.
