    Anyone know if you can use the GPS functionality without the subscription. I found the Explorer will allow you to, but nothing on the Mini. I am going to suspend my account and test, but wanted to see if anyone knew. I will update the thread with what I find.

    If I get a winch on my 2WD, can I overland with the BASTRDs and SGU?!
    I’m curious.

    Keep us updated. I have a mini and have wondered as well. I want to say that you can't, but not 100% sure.

    The Garmin Explore app blows. Better to use a dedicated mapping app like Gaia, OnX, Avenza etc that can download offline maps. You don't need cell service to get accurate GPS coordinates.

    I use OnX for hunting, and recently got an inreach mini. Mainly for texting when I'm out of service area so that my wife knows I'm okay. I downloaded the Garmin/earthmate app. not too bad.
