Which inReach Is Right for You?
As satellite communicators, the inReach Mini, SE+ and Explorer+ offer identical messaging capabilities. However, it’s on the GPS navigation side that their differences become apparent. While inReach SE+ uses GPS to provide basic grid navigation and allow you to drop waypoints, mark key locations, track your progress, and follow a breadcrumb trail back to base – the inReach Explorer+ goes a step beyond, providing full-fledged GPS on-map guidance with preloaded TOPO mapping and waypoint routings viewable directly on the unit. Plus, a built-in digital compass, barometric altimeter and accelerometer are included with Explorer+ to help you get and maintain accurate bearings anywhere on or off the beaten path. The Mini includes a smaller, black and white screen with no maps.
Both the SE+ and Explorer+ models measure 2.7" x 6.5" x 1.5" and weigh 7.5 oz. Includes USB charging cable and carabiner clip. The Mini measures 4"h x 2"w and weighs 3.5 oz.
