I use InReach on solo backpacking, packrafting & bikepacking trips at request of spouse for security - I check in once every 24 hrs & she lets me take the trips. Great compromise. I don\'t link to phone, but use InReach as standalone text machine to extend battery life. I use Earthmate as standalone mapping app to determine public/private lands.

Like the app and system with the hunt detailed mapping. The biggest problem is battery drain. That needs to be fixed

I use this for kayaking, pretty dissapointed in the marine charts. If you could combine I-boating with this, it would be perfect... but its not.

doesn\'t sync all messages from mini. doesnt support copy/paste, i cant send a message to my group, because the empty text is 218 words used out of 160(~). its EMPTY! there are no letters!! As with most garmin software, always a problem, this is not acceptable for InReach users, we dont have the luxury of cell or wifi coverage. update. downgraded to one star, you cant solicit any tech support via inreach email, and if you need to make account changes, you need an internet connection.

Reasonably decent app but still a good number of quirks. Hopefully app will continue to improve. History and previous tracks still sketchy, logging into inreach on computer still the way to go there. 1/19/2020 Tracking is screwed up again. Inreach account shows correct stats, app shows correct path but distances shown for tracks are approx. half what they should be. Sync in the menu does nothing, why does Garmin continually screw this up?

Honestly, one of the clunkiest app experiences I\'ve ever had. The hardware is great but Garmin really doesnt follow through on mobile and web apps. The app can\'t do basic filtering of tracks and waypoints, menus are unintuitive with basic functions hidden behind multiple clicks, and syncing is inconsistent between device/web/mobile. Two stars because ultimately I CAN download maps, see where I am, send messages, and get weather fairly easily. Everything else is just... really shaky.

this app really needa some TLC. it used to be great but is going downhill fast. public lands arent updating and what is updated is not showing the right color schemes for the type of public land. please fix. For an app that is made to pair with a $450+ device this is really disappointing.
Eric McDonald 2019-04-03

horrible app development. horrible product management. such a waste of effort to only work with one device. yall are making a lot of people mad because you dont make anything compatible with your line of products. if you wanna win, make EVERYTHING WORK WITH EVERYTHING YOU MAKE! How stupid can you be?
Pat Gioannini 2021-02-22

The app is very buggy. Like another reviewer mine does not always pull the messages from the inreach device. Once this happens there does not appear to be a way to manually pull the messages. The count of unread messages on the device get out of sync and there is no way to fix that either. These 2 problems combine to make it very difficult to tell if you have a new message. Changed to one star because after 2 years these problems are still not fixed.
Lenny Carrell 2017-06-19

Why does this app start in the background and drain my battery very quickly, even when I\'m not using my Inreach? If the InReach wasn\'t such a pain to text on I would have no use for this app. Last update \"fixed multiple bugs\", how bout you fix probably the biggest one. Maybe you need to pay the upgrade to get one that functions correctly? Not willing to take that chance.
