Like the app and system with the hunt detailed mapping. The biggest problem is battery drain. That needs to be fixed
Use all the time. Works great
Update 8/30/17 Since the newest update a couple days ago the battery issue seems to be solved. Seems pretty conservative on battery. There's also a new firmware update. I haven't had to much time to play with new features but everything is looking good and running good. July 2017 Let me know when you fix the battery drain. I couldn't figure out why my phone was dead at 11am the last couple days in till I looked at the battery usage on the phone. This app used more battery then everything I had running combined x2. Other then that maps look good.
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.
Reading about the battery drain issue, I am irritated in advance. Phone is my main nav device for weeks long backcounty trips with only a solar panel for recharge. I will be forced to use this app only at home and delete it while I hike. The InReach unit will have to be used in standalone. The lost messages issue is another bummer, as is synch only with paid app, after buying an expensive unit and subscription. Bummers all around. Garmin, do better.
Wow lots of promise. I'm an avid GPS user, and use my InReach primarily for messaging. This app makes me want to use it for its mapping. Love the OSM and Topo maps! My chief complaint which will make me uninstall this app between trips is the CONSTANT BATTERY DRAIN! Even after killing the app, the auto scheduler in the background for firmware updates or something is taking up significant battery life. FIX this please!
