Not very well thought out This app is designed to work with the Delorme inReach satellite communication/EPIRB unit. Whoever designed it lives in their lab and has never been outdoors on a hike. This app has no selection to keep the screen turned on so when one is hiking you have to constantly wake your phone to even view the map. The other design flaws are too numerous to list.
Latest Update Inreach now will pair again with Earthmate. Thanks!! Very, very nice.
I installed to app but I am having problems logging on. Is anyone else experiencing the same problem?
Not happy with the new version Updating to the new version lost all my maps and account access and setting. I deeply regret doing the update.
Don't use InReach/Earthmate if plan to go to countries with bad Internet! I'm in Tajikistan, I saw a new update for bug fixes, installed it... and I lost all the maps I had already downloaded! Internet here is very bad, it took me two days to download the map for Tajikistan and Afghanistan border, which is a tiny area AND IT WEIGHTS 1,3 GB! And there's no way I can know wich area the topo map I downloaded covers. Should I download another gb for Kyrgyzstan? ?
Quite buggy now! Just upgraded app after 1 year of good performance, and bugs abound: tracking crashes app, gps lock doesn't turn off when leaving app, turning off data fields in map view mode doesn't restore full size map, message location in history display doesn't work.
NOTE: Version 2.0 uses a new Map Engine and will remove all of your existing maps. Make sure you have access to a wifi or cellular connection and enough time to download the new maps for your area.
Version 2.0 Update #4
-Fixes possible issue when app is launched
