What In Reach model do you use?
I have been trying to decide between the Explorer or the Mini. I have a Garmin 650T Montana GPS so was thinking that the Explorer model wouldn't have much benefit other not having to carry 2 units. But also was concerned about using the SOS device as a GPS and potentially drain the batteries.

For what its worth. I had the in-reach SE. Yellow model. It worked well for what I was using it for.

You can find them on e-bay "cheap" now.
