I'm beyond mad. After reading lots of great reviews about the Zoleo I chose it over the inreach. I can't even get past the first screen on the app. It sent me a verification code once but I got an error when I entered it. Now it just keeps giving me an error. I uninstalled and reinstalled twice with no luck. I signed up for service before downloading the app so now I'm out all that money for a useless brick.

In general it works great. I can send texts to my wife when in nature. She can also see where I am, and I can send SOS in case something goes wrong (not used fortunately). Recently it turned off for no reason. It had enough charge and turning on and off is hard because it is a small button and you have to press for a few seconds, so it is weird that it was suddenly turned off, and dangerous when you suddenly need it in case of emergency. They want user's feedback. I said I want to download my tracks so I can check it out on Google Maps. This is easy to program for them. They were very unresponsive to this idea. I could do this with my SPOT communicator 10 years ago already.

Solid Product. overall better than the competition (garmin/somewear) , you get your own number, but lacks a number of basic features that others have: no mapping on app, no tracking, no public web interface for people to follow you or see message locations on a map, no downloading of waypoints, and no group messaging. I thought these would be easy adds over time but almost a year later and the app has not seen any meaningful updates which is unfortunate.... I'd still recommend zoleo but if the above are important to you, go for somewear -better software
