Poor maps - Bluetooth not reliable

I have an Inreach Explorer +. The device performance is as advertised, and I’m satisfied. However, the Iphone app EARTHMATE is not reliable for communication between my Iphone 7 and my Explorer+. After several months of testing the app, I can say that coupling works only once out of ten trials.

Topographic maps are also for all practical purpose not usable. I use the device in northern Quebec. Small lakes and pounds are not visible on the map. I still have to carry my old Garmin GPS with good Topographic maps on excursions, and use the Explorer+ only for satellite communication purpose.

Unless better maps are available in the future, I do not recommend the Explorer+. The basic Explorer (yellow body) or the Inreach Mini will do the same functions, without the maps, that are anyway not usable for serious users.

No aerial maps available for download

Disappointed. Only the most basic topo map is available in this app for my area. I would need the Aerial or at least hybrid of some kind showing trails and cut lines for this to be useful

Sélection de carte typographique

Le seul point négatif que je peux voir pour ce produit est la pauvreté d'information des cartes topographiques. S'il était possible de pouvoir implémenter des cartes de notre choix dans l'application cellulaire Earthmate, le GPS inreach deviendrait redoutable contre les compétiteurs!
