Just discovered that my first-generation InReach will no longer be able to request weather forecasts. Otherwise it works fine for text messages.
Now, I'm not really tech-savy, but I'm guessing that the data stream for the weather request is unchanged- except they know you have an older model. Obviously a ploy to separate the customer from his money.
Anyway, weather is important enough to me that I shelled out nearly $500 Canadian for a new InReach Mini.
