I have been using InReach for a little over three years. It has been a great investment! I have been in situation where weather caused the group to separate and just being able to notify all of the situation helped keep people calm. Nothing like a freak thunderstorm to make you change your plans. I like the weather update. I just wish there was a way to attach a photo to a message. I think this could also be useful in an emergency situation.
