    At first I didn’t think the original Mini made much sense on a boat where device size doesn’t matter much. But actually it turned out to be the easiest-to-use of many inReach models I’ve tried simply because the feature set offered on the actual device is stripped down. But those features are still available with an easier interface when paired with phone or tablet. Plus now it’s possible to pair Mini messaging with most Garmin multifunction displays. And the Mini 2 looks like a nice upgrade from the original.

    But what about the satellite emergency messaging recently announced by Apple/Globalstar and T-Mobile/StarLink? It sounds like a great smartphone feature that could be especially valuable to boaters, but judging from what I’ve read so far, the technology is all a bit tentative so far.
