The Garmin Inreach Mini is the best unit available in my opinion. While there are many PLB’s available there arent many that allow texting and / or email. I am a solo rider as I choose my own company and want to escape the city life at times. Unfortunately that increases the risk. I and my family now feel a little more at ease being able to get in touch when required. Also with the Inreach you can purchase either monthly or yearly subscription. I personally do the monthly sub on a as and when required basis. Don’t ride anywhere anymore without it.
A good idea is to also make up a ICE Card (in case of emergency) so in the case that you are unconscious first responders know who to contact as well as any allergies and pre-existing conditions.
