Take Flight with Unique Aviation Capabilities
Love the MapShare portal on the web that my wife uses to track my flight from home. The 1 minute tracking that I signed up for is great to broadcast my flight status with virtually no delay. Performance of the device has been flawless! Wish I got it sooner!
I had significant problems registering the device and initiating first-time service. The registration web site had numerous errors that turned out to be regular occurrences that required two days of screwing around and finally a phone call (two phone calls) into Garmin reps who had to manually activate the device. They said this happens all the time and, now being subscribed to their outage notification service, I find that true. Their registration system is ALWAYS having problems. Having said that, after youre over that hurdle, the device is fantastic. I find myself wanting/needing to send txts while airborne and the cell phone is spotty at best and completely unreliable above say 5000. The InReach works 100% of the time. I now regularly txt more accurate ETAs to waiting passengers and can txt my A&P IA if trouble arises. Ive already used it to let my waiting ride know I wasnt making it into Field A and diverting to Field B. He was there waiting just slick as grease. I find the purchase and subscription prices/options fair, though they do go out of their way to hide the annual fee that is ADDITIONAL to their monthly fee. Its about $20 or so, but is nothing more than a money grab. Watch out for that. TLDR: Annoying hiccups getting registered, after that its smooth sailing.
No, however ram mounts has a universal mount. See part number 11-10087 and base part 11-08584.
The InReach mini is a lightweight satellite communicator that enables two-way text messaging via 100% global Iridium. satellite network (satellite subscription required). The 406 and 121.5 frequency are not used with this device and cannot be used as an ELT.
