Just wanted to start off this series with a quick unboxing and compare against the inReach Explorer. I didn't dive too deep into details as they will be covered in my usual short tutorials. ** GET THE GEAR ON AMAZON** https://www.amazon.com/shop/jimcyr Overall this device has been difficult to get my hands on as the usual bix box stores are not yet carrying them and of the few that do, they only carry the ST version. In terms of specs, you get some high level stuff like: - 16 hours of battery life using AA batteries - SD card slot -IPX7 (30min under 1m of water) - tested against MIL-810 spec for "Ruggedness" -pre loaded topo maps for US & Canada -birdseye satellie photos - wifi & bluetooth to connect to your smartphone so that you can use either the Explore or Garmin Connect smartphone apps. In terms of size, it is very close to the inReach Explorer, albeit less rounded edges. The main display is 3 inches diagonal and is quite larger than the inReach. Buttons are in usual spots where the power button is located at the top and the input button are below the screen. If you are a previous GPSMAP user, you won't have much of a curve to learn. After the initial wizard where we chose the language, it took a few minutes to get a satellite fix inside the house. The ribbon to switch screens is now at the bottom and is familar. The main menu has a lot more apps and if you have an inReach mini, you'll be able to connect to it. I put in a pair of Energizer AA batteries and that should last a while. In upcoming videos, I'll dive into the various features like connecting to Garmin Connect and download app from the IQ store, getting notification and weather when paired to the phone. - - - - - - - - - - - *** WEBSITE *** http://avoidingchores.com http://gps.training *** SOCIAL MEDIA *** TWITTER: http://twitter.com/avoidingchores FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/AvoidingChores INSTAGRAM: http://instagram.com/thecyr *** PODCAST *** Find us on iTunes & Stitcher, search for "Avoiding Chores" *** MAILING LIST *** http://eepurl.com/M2FSb *** POPULAR PLAYLISTS *** Garmin Tutorials https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL025AEDCF4E47B8F4 Garmin inReach Tutorials https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCoASYysvzldY6Qyih4hO4tlFJrFY5uiT Outdoor Recreation Skills Bushcraft https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA3BECE680F4A510C Cast Iron Dutch Oven Outdoor Cooking https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCoASYysvzlfQDVRu2ciDKGQuSxt4ZWaY - - - - - - - - - - - What better way to avoid chores than to watch videos from an array of related topics based in Nova Scotia.
