I have an InReach and it's great for what I need. But I don't think it's going to download weather
maps. The only weather option I'm aware of is Ocen's SpotCast, which is basically a text message containing a coded forecast
The InReach can really just send and receive text messages. You can send and receive them to/from an e-mail account, but you can't do things like embed pictures or format the text. You can set up automatic tracking messages that you and others can view on the web. Nice touch, but the true functionality is two-way text messaging anywhere on earth.
option for $8/month sounds interesting, anyone use that?
