I've been looking at getting a 2-way satellite messenger for a while now... but didn't like the bulk/weight of the Garmin InReach SE+/Explorer+ models or even the older DeLorme models. I wanted something that was small/light enough that I'd have little excuse to leave it behind while fly fishing and wanted a good IPX rating. Of course, needs to have enough battery for a long day out. Pairing with my GPS-less iPad would be a nice plus. Garmin has now come thru with a mini version! Lists for $350. Introducing inReach® Mini from Garmin® - Garmin Blog Got my pre-order in... should arrive in time for my next native trout hunt (4 days in Elko County, NV). I'll write up a field review afterwards.
