Activating Tracking and Logging on the inReach Explorer

Authors list

The inReach Explorer provides two tracking options:

  • Tracking: Tracking is offer on all three inReach models. You can activate a tracking interval of 10 minutes or more and then broadcast your tracking to the explore.delorme.com portal as well as the MapShare feature. Each track send to the Explore portal costs one tracking messge.
  • Logging: Logging can run seperately from tracking or alongside tracking. Logging allows you to track your trip without having to broadcast your tracks over the air and therefore saving tracking fees. Logging also allows you to use intervals below 10 minutes enabling a very accurate account of your trip.
