Aqua, January 1, 2012 For those considering this, don't be swayed by the
Calgarian's comments. If you read Delorme's support page,
it plainly indicates two things he has chosen to ignore: The
first is that you need to be running the latest version of
Android. The fact that Telus won't let you upgrade to v.2.3
is not Delorme's fault! Secondly, Delorme also cautions
that there are issues with HTC phones (particularly those
running older software). Do your homework and follow
Delorme's instructions and you'll find that this works
spectactularly (way better than the Spot coverage and you
get confirmation that your message was actually received) in
addition to two way. The only downside I can say about it,
is that it is far bigger than i thought it would be. I
expected it to be about the size of the Spot Connect and was
surprised to see that it is far larger!
Backcountry Bob, December 16, 2011 After purchasing the unit, I found out it won't talk to my
Telus HTC Desire, which runs Android 2,2. The fine print
suggests I upgrade to Android 2.3 but Telus aren't saying
when the upgrade will be available. Prospective customers
should CONFIRM that the Inreach will work with their android
phone before leaving the store.
Rubik, December 9, 2011 Sorry Delorme. First your activation process is broken.
Then the inReach device refuses to even pair (much less
work) with your software on multiple versions of Android
(2.2 and 2.3). Your tech support doesn't return calls, even
days later. And over email, rather than looking into issues
right away, tech support delays and asks for 'screenshots'
of the problem. It's a cool looking device, with some
amazing specs, but paying $250 plus a monthly fee to
basically be a beta tester is too much. For a safety
device, you've lost my trust for now.
Also, I'd like to comment that this doesn't have to do with
gpscity. The inReach is one of a few devices I've gotten
from them, and their service is always great.
