Title: inReach Explorer+ Maps
Post by: jgaffney on September 20, 2017, 10:03:45 AM
Well, I finally did it. I ordered an inReach Explorer+ from REI. It should be here in a couple of days.

I read on the web where it comes preloaded with a North America map. I'm waiting to see how much detail the map has. But, on my old eTrex 30, I also use some of the maps here, especially the Yosemite map with all of the trails and features. The Garmin manual describes a procedure where I can load additional maps from their website. Are the maps here compatible with the new unit? Is there a way I can load them on my device?

See Red90's post in the other thread you started. Based on that I would say the maps here are not compatible.

The worst part is that they are not able to use Garmin compatible maps.
