5.0 out of 5 stars This is what happens when you push the SOS button.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 June 2021
First off, sorry, this turned into a bit of a monster write up, but I thought it important to give a bit of background info. This all happened a while back, I just never got around to writing a review.

Anyhow, my partner and I are both keen walkers who do quite a bit of mixed walking/hiking around the UK including lowland as well as a fair bit up in the fells/mountains around the usual suspects in the Brecons, Snowdonia and the Lake District. After checking my phone on the odd walk and seeing no signal I wondered to myself what would happen if the sh1t hit the fan.. I’m one of those boring types who always carries a good first aid kit (mainly trauma type (think big dressings and a tourniquet) rather than plasters and savlon, in the hope that if I needed to I could hopefully keep someone alive, rather than treating them for a nettle sting. So after much “umming” and “ahhhhing” I decided to splash out and buy the inreach mini.
Fast forward around 2 months and we were having a wander up Snowdon (complete with my shiny inreach mini). We got to the summit and as it was blowing a hoolie we decided to head down a little to find some shelter for lunch. Around 300 metres below the summit my partner caught her toe on a rock and hit the deck face first, she seemed ok but after getting her up and sat down on a rock, I noticed a really small (5p piece) hole in the knee of her walking trousers (no blood by the way) with what looked and felt like a couple of little bits of fatty stuff around the hole. While I chatted to her I rolled up the trouser leg to take a look.. those of a weak disposition should probably skip to the next paragraph. The skin across the front of her kneecap was neatly split from one side to the other, so deep that you could see all the subcutaneous fat (which, not surprisingly, was what the fatty stuff was on her trousers), but due to the deep trauma there was surprisingly little blood.
After straightening the leg, pulling the skin back together and sticking some sutures across, I put a first field dressing over it (yes, I’m ex army if you hadn’t guessed already), rolled down the trouser leg and poured copious amounts of coffee and chocolate down the casualty.

Despite her saying it was just a scratch and that she could happily walk down (honestly she did!) I figured we needed help so I reached for my phone.. yep my phone, because I was too worried and wasn’t sure how much of an emergency it was. Anyway, I had 1 bar but it wasn’t enough to make a call, so I asked a really kind passer by if they could chat to the Mrs (i.e. keep her distracted) while I ran uphill/upmountain a little to see if I could get enough of a signal to call 999. It worked, I got through, reported the issue, gave them the grid ref, then went back to make sure everything was ok. So it’s around 2 in the afternoon now, the sun is starting to get lower and we’re soon going into the shadows. An hour passed before I got an alert on my phone to say I had a voice message, again super helpful passer by assisted while I nipped up to get a better signal. The voicemail was from mountain rescue saying that they had tried to contact me but to no avail, so had now cancelled the call out!

I went back down to the Mrs who at this point had all of her own clothes on, quite a few of mine, a big wooly hat, gloves, a survival bag and two hand warmers but was still shivering (cold and probably a bit of shock). I told her mountain rescue was on the way. I flicked off the SOS button cover and pressed the button. Around 30 seconds later I received an inreach message back saying “Emergency Response acknowledged your emergency” followed by a couple of further messages asking what had happened. I didn’t think to use the iPhone app to send the message and instead tried to send it directly on the inreach, my frozen hands managed to send back “fjall” then “fall” then finally “fallen”. 5 mins later another message “Emergency services are aware of your situation, we have relayed xxxxxx injury to them. We will update with information as received from them”.

Another half hour passed and a voicemail appeared, I nipped back up the hill and called the number back, it was mountain rescue telling me an aircraft was on the way. I told the casualty that mountain rescue was on the way and despite being deliberately vague she cottoned on it was going to be a ride in a helicopter. 20 or so mins later my phone rang and I nipped up the hill (again) to answer it, this time it was the aircraft crew asking a couple of questions about the area. Shortly after it arrived, winched down the crewman and he came wobbling over carrying all his kit. After a quick assessment (including cutting open the leg on her brand new walking trousers and replacing my dressing with a ‘suction dressing”) he told her she was coming for a ride to Bangor hospital. He asked me if I wanted to come along too, but I told him I’d pick up the car at the bottom then drive to the hospital, I asked how long it would take to get to Bangor hospital, his reply was “it’ll take us about 10 mins”, groan..

After watching her safely winched up into the helicopter and it disappearing toward the horizon, it was suddenly very quiet, with only me and one other guy left near the summit. By this time the sun was getting very low and I was absolutely freezing from not moving for a couple of hours. Long story short, I made it down to the car park just after dark, after VERY carefully picking my way along the well worn and safest track. Oh and yes, I had a head torch.

TL:DR
1. If you think it’s an emergency, just push the button. The Garmin guys will take care of everything and coordinate the rescue.
3. Don’t count on always having a mobile signal. The moment you really need it the chances are you won’t have one.
3. Remember that you can send messages from the phone app and not just the clunky user interface of the mini.
4. The Inreach mini isn’t cheap but it’s brilliant insurance if something goes wrong, for me it was and still is worth every penny.
5. Don’t forget to be a grown up and carry a first aid kit, waterproofs, warm clothing all the other good stuff as well as a map and compass (best to learn how to use it too.. if not, at least you can wave it at the guys who rescue you, and avert the headline of ‘another person navigating with only a mobile phone lost on mountain”). :-)
6. Put some coins in the next mountain rescue collection box, you never know when you might need them.
