What’s New

Jan 16, 2016  Delorme Earthmate App Review. The key with this app is downloading the specific region you’re traveling to on wifi before your trip. Then, in the field you have awesome, very accurate, and beautiful looking maps on your phone (trails, topo, satalite images). The downloads are free and you’re only limited by you storage capacity. This versatile app lets you download detailed maps directly to your mobile device. Using your device’s GPS capabilities, Earthmate also allows you to determine your current location, navigate a route or find a waypoint, track your progress, set and manage waypoints and more.

Added better reporting during the rare case of an application crash

Needs driving functionality

Item works great for camping/ hiking, and apparently you can use it for flying which is good to know, but I would like to see more functionality out of this device. For instance my previous gps was a Garmin 96C that was primarily purchased for flying. It had tons of more features including a car navigation, marine navigation, etc. the app is much more user friendly, but it could be used for so much more. And it would be nice to have a driving feature like google maps or allow your gps signal to be open sourced to companies like google. So when you loose gps signal on your phone you can likely still navigate with this.

Needs to check for messages more frequently

I have loved the Garmin inReach. My work is primarily out of cell service and so I use it to keep in touch with work and my wife. The only thing that I want improved is the frequency that it checks for messages without having to manually check for them.
My suggestion would be to either have it check every five minutes or allow the user to set a timer in the app or on the device to send out a manual check for messages at specified intervals. I would love to be able to set my inReach up to check for messages every 5 minutes or while hunting set it up to check every 30 minutes. Long story short I think it would be a huge improvement to allow the user to specify the frequency of how often it checks for new messages.

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!
