Activating the Device
Before you can use your inReach® Mini device, you must activate it.
- Create an account, and select a satellite subscription at explore.garmin.com.
- Turn on the device.
- Follow the on-screen instructions.
- When prompted, go outdoors to an open area with a clear view of the sky.
Wait while the device communicates with the
Iridium® satellite network.
NOTE: It may take up to 20 minutes to activate your device. The device must send and receive several messages, which takes longer than sending a single message during regular use.
