For my trip next year, I have been looking at getting a Garmin Inreach Mini. I’m not sure if a new model is due to be announced; I’m guessing Garmin will use their solar technology in it if so. I have been reluctant to buy one because it’s a sealed unit, and battery quality degrades over time. After doing a bit of research, I believe replacing the battery isn’t actually that difficult. You just unscrew a few screws on the back. Perhaps someone with it could correct me if I’m wrong.
Completely unrelated, and I won’t be buying one, but I noticed these Mavic 2 Pro drones look pretty cool :).Affiliate information.
