Delorme inReach – Pairing Device & Getting Started

In this video, I’ll show you how to pair your Delorme InReach for Smartphone with an iPad 2. You can pair this unit via bluetooth with any iOS device or Android device.

First thing is to get the inReach registered and activated.

Now on the device, go to Settings and turn on BLUETOOTH.

Note that the inReach is probably not discoverable, what you will need to do is to do a ONE TIME operation, by HOLDING DOWN POWER BUTTON until you see RAPID LIGHT SEQUENCE. Release and the device should now appear and ready to be paired.

From there you can download the Earthmate app and with your device activated, you can download the rich Delorme maps and download them onto your device.

Note that you are downloading for offline usage, so be aware your free space.

You also want to login into using your Delorme account and sync your contact list. This will enable you to send email, sms, twitter or facebook message.

You can still use the inReach as a standalone device, but using a smartphone or tablet will allow you to navigate using the maps and send messages.
