Added better reporting during the rare case of an application crash
Ratings and Reviews
I am having trouble with tracking. The map reflects the track. Last track details disappears after a little time. Total track details reflects an extraordinarily large set of numbers even though I manually clear it. These flaws limit the usefulness of the app post hike. Would be good to be able to clear Last Track without clearing Total Track and also to be able to see Total Track Details that include only data since last time it was cleared. Support has been very sluggish compared to support for the Mini.
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.
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.
