Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to set up but great in action I bought this to keep in touch in remote no reception areas. It worked well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use I bought this a month ago as I needed to be able to remain in contact when remote and by myself. While this was the key reason, I was looking forward to trying out some of the other features. After completing the set-up, which was probably not as easy as I would have liked, the InReach Explorer+ has proved to be a handy companion. Being able to locate, track, and determine the approximate distance to destination have all been features I thought I wouldn't need, but have appreciated having. I would have prefered Topo50 maps to be available, but the preloaded ones work fine. While the recommendation is that the device access the satellites without interference, I have found that tracking has worked well when buried in a garment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact, easy to use, great for navigation I bought this a month ago, and have used it twice, once on a tramp, and then on an overnight whitewater kayaking trip. Although thankfully we haven't had to use the SOS functionality, it has proved it's worth for the messaging and navigation. The topo maps on the device were detailed enough for navigation on tracks and on the river. Writing custom messages is a bit slow in the device, but the predictive text helps speed things up, and writing messages using the smartphone app is easy. The 3 predefined free message allowance, also eases sending messages from the device. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars, is because I had issues logging into the Garmin inReach portal for about a week from purchase, the sync app stopped working after a software update, and there are issues with the maps accessed from the links sent by the unit. Garmin are currently porting all of the inReach services across to their platform, and in time hopefully these problems will be fixed. Despite the problems, I would still recommend this device.
