Not what I thpught Really no functionality at all. Since you can not load waypoints it is basically a map. I could have found that for a lot cheaper. Just wonder how to get my money back.
I just upgraded to the new Earthmate app on my Samsung Galaxy 5 phone. It is significantly better than the free app, well worth the initial cost and annual fee. Aside from the excellent maps (you can download a variety of them) and most important, communication via satellite from -> anywhere <- including SOS, it now has a primitive compass, waypoints (with editing), routes, history, my inReach (connection status and tracking status). This makes the phone and inReach really useful. I am used to carrying both devices and my GPSr but I'm now tempted to leave the GPSr at home. Most importantly, don't YOU become one of those people who die in the wilderness because they don't have a personal rescue beacon!! Use the app along with a deLorme inReach and STAY ALIVE.
Coupled via bluetooth to inReach GPS/satellite messenger, this app gives me a large screen GPS topo (phone-size screen rather than small GPS screen) and speeds typing of messages by providing full keyboard. The DeLorme maps that I've used with this have been accurate in showing topo and trail locations in southern Colorado. This app is an excellent solution to providing an inexpensive, high quality, large screen GPS.
In reach Works great with my inreach device. Just takes some tinkering to get use to the setup. Always see my tracking points no problems at all.
Best low cost survival product PERIOD! Cell phone service is not every where. People think pushing 911 on their cell phone magically connects you to help.IT DOES NOT! Do your home work as I and you will discover this is the best low cost communications product. My family friend lost his boat on the great lakes (lake Erie) from a storm. He owes his life to this technology. I'm sold. I'm happy that can I go anywhere I want and I do not have to worry. Customer Service is good too. Thank you for a great product.
Not accurate This app does not have the features listed. When downloaded, I do not have the compass and waypoint features.
