    Nope it uses satellites so no signal needed. That’s hilarious... my wife and I are millennials so the InReach was non-negotiable

    I did a week Backcountry hunt in ID last year and made maps on caltopo and uploaded to avenza maps. I ran on my phone all week in airplane mode and it worked great. You can save waypoints with photos as well. It's a sweet tool and free up to 3 maps.

    I took my Garmin as well because I hadn't field tested the phone for extended periods before then but on the future i will likely leave the Garmin home. Take a small charging brick just in case. Turn your phone off every night also stretches battery. My hunting partner didn't he same and made it 6 days vs my 5.
