Garmin abuses your content

Even though we pay Garmin for the service, Garmin now requires full rights to use/sell your content ...

“8.3 Content License from You. You agree ... that inReach has no responsibility to you or to any third-party for ... any content that you create, transmit or display on or through the inReach websites ...
Content which you submit, post or display ... you give inReach a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any such Content. Furthermore, you agree ... for inReach to make such Content available to other companies”

Also, one our Inreach devices were stolen. I asked Garmin to let me know when the new party registered the stolen unit. I was told the only thing they would do is block activation but only as long as I paid to keep it registered with them. This adds value to people stealing units and makes Garmin complicit in the thefts. Unfortunate, I used speak highly of the service. Shopping other companies now.

And no way to stop emails from Garmin asking you repeatedly, for access to our Facebook.

No ability to send Preset messages from app

I have an InReach Mini device. I don’t understand why I cannot send a Preset message (not a Quick message which counts against text message allotment). It seems like a basic feature they have intentionally omitted. I often keep my InReach strapped to my backpack for a clear view of the sky and so it is not easy to reach. Luckily I have a Garmin Fenix 5x watch which I connect to the InReach and can send Preset messages via the watch. Hopefully Garmin doesn’t read this and take away my ability to do that!

Not for a serious map user

Cool sat imagery. How come we can’t plan routes from a mobile device? How come waypoints don’t have elevation information? How come the contour lines don’t have any data to include labeling of numbers or intervals and change colors at various zooms making it impossible to read elevation? Seriously. A map has bold contour lines with an actual number on it. Then the 5 lines or so in between have an interval. I learned this in basic training. What good are those lines if the user can’t interpret them. Fix this immediately it makes the app unusable in any real mountain terrain!
