FAQs

1. How much are the service plans for Garmin inReach to work on the GPSMAP67i?

You can find these online here.

2. When do I choose and activate my inReach service plan?

You do this online with Garmin as you register and set up your inReach Satellite Communicator.

 

3. Does the Garmin inReach work using mobile phone signal?

No, and communication (text messages and e-mail) is done using the global Iridium satellite coverage.

4. What are each of the map options available with the Garmin GPSMAP 67i?

This unit has Topoactive mapping on the internal memory and so this option comes as standard with any option you purchase. (Eg, if you purchase TOPO Great Britain Pro 1:50k, you will also get Topoactive mapping on the internal memory)

  
– Garmin GPSMAP 67 With Western Europe TOPO ACTIVE Mapping

Garmin TOPO ACTIVE mapping is a proper digital map, as you zoom in you get more information and as you zoom out you get less. BUT, it is not an Ordnance Survey map, therefore it does not differentiate between Bridleways and Footpaths, it just marks them as paths. 

It covers 47 European countries, compiled using the community-generated OpenStreetMap (OSM) database. Coverage for: Albania, Andorra, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kosovo, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia (Kaliningrad only), San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom and the Vatican City.


– Garmin GPSMAP 67i with TOPO Great Britain Pro 1:50k (2021 edition – most recent)

This is full GB at 1:50k mapping on a map card, which sits in the back of the GPS unit.

The TOPO PRO means that it is the latest map card from Garmin, giving you off road turn by turn routing within the National Parks, this means you can select a location many miles ahead and the GPS will route you via the footpaths to get to that location (like a car sat nav does).

Outside National Parks the GPS will navigate you in a straight line from waypoint to waypoint.

Don’t worry, here at the GPS Training we set the unit up for you so you can easily use these features and we even include a quick start guide so you can quickly get up and running with your GPS unit.

– Garmin GPSMAP 67i with TOPO Great Britain PRO 1:25k, 1:50k and 1:250k Ordnance Survey Map Card – NEW very latest 2024 v3 edition

This is full GB at 1:50k, 1:50k and 1:250k mapping on a map card, which sits in the back of the GPS unit. As you zoom in and out you pass through each of these three map sets.

The TOPO PRO means that it is the latest map card from Garmin, giving you off-road turn by turn routing within the National Parks, this means you can select a location many miles ahead and the GPS will route you via the footpaths to get to that location (like a car sat nav does).

Outside National Parks, the GPS will navigate you in a straight line from waypoint to waypoint.

5. What is the best way to carry the Garmin GPSMAP67i GPS unit?

Our most popular accessory to carry the Garmin GPSMAP67 is the Garmin backpack tether.

6. Can you use the Garmin GPSMap67i on a Bicycle ?
Yes you can there is a bike bar mount available for the Garmin GPSMap67 here and the pre-loaded Topo Active Mapping covering all of Europe has turn by turn routable data suitable for cycling.

7. Is the Garmin GPSMap 67i a good GPS unit for all-season use?
The Garmin GPSMap 67 is a great rugged unit for using in all weathers due to its good size buttons which can be used with gloves on, ingress protection rating of IPX7 offering great weather protection and has a Trans Reflective sunlight readable colour screen.

8. Does the inReach Two-Way Satellite communication work in every country?

inReach devices operate on the Iridium satellite network, which provides 100% global coverage. However, some countries require prior permission for the authorized use of a satellite communication device and some countries have banned the use of satellite communications devices. In addition, United States embargoes prohibit providing satellite communications products and services in some countries.

The list below provides our best understanding of countries that may regulate or prohibit the use of a satellite communicator or are on a list of U.S. embargoed countries:

  • Taliban controlled Afghanistan
  • Crimea region of the Ukraine
  • Cuba
  • Georgia (SMS)
  • India
  • Iran
  • North Korea
  • Myanmar
  • Sudan
  • Syria
  • Thailand
  • Vietnam
  • China
  • Russia

Regulations and the list above may change without notice.

4 reviews for Garmin GPSMAP 67i

  1. 3 out of 5

    Ian S (verified owner)

    The context of this review is using the Garmin GPSMaps 67i on 13 walks of total 80 miles in the landscape of the Southern Uplands of Scotland in July. Many of the walks are near habitation, but tend to rise quickly over rugged high terrain with frequent areas following only feint tracks or unmarked peat/ bracken/ heather. Each of the walks has peaks of around 450-800m (1,500-2,500ft), and remote enough that incidents may require assistance/ rescue of some kind or other. More so as each walk was solo, though being July weather was favourable with just wind, rain and wet terrain being the main variables.

    The Garmin GPSMAP 67i contains impressive technology, but the user manual is inadequate. Consequently, users, reviewers, advice-givers, and even Garmin technical support, appear to promote different justifications, theories and processes for why the unit acts in certain ways, the terminologies used (routes, tracks, activities, and courses) and how each should be used. it didn’t help that there is an annoying bug that simply crashed the watch repeatedly when I was using Garmin’s ‘TOPO Active’ maps – if ‘more detail’ or ‘most detail’ was selected for maps display, the unit would frequently crash and restart when showing a course’s map after pressing the MENU button. Since using instead the 1:25,000 OS Maps card (which also includes 1:50,000 maps), that error has not reoccurred.

    The 67i functions in different ways to my Garmin activity-tracking watch, and cannot achieve some simple tasks that the watch can do. For instance, most courses that are imported from Ordnance Survey’s OSMaps and other walking web sites/ apps cannot be hiked in reverse on the 67i (because they use ‘road’ data apparently) but can on the Garmin Fenix watch. Garmin Support say that this is to prevent one going down a one-way street the wrong way, yet the 67i is promoted as an outdoors activity device and hikers in reality are safely and easily able to go down one-way streets in a counter direction to traffic. Just silly. What makes it sillier is that Garmin Support gave me this justification in the same email that they provided a TEN step guide for getting-around this ‘design feature’. On my watch, I instead select the single option ‘Do course in reverse’.

    My Garmin watch also intelligently identifies turns, and provides turn-by-turn alerts for courses. Whilst the 67i does provide alerts when one has departed the track of a course, it does not give the same turn-by-turn notifications for such courses. This may be different in a National Park where OS and Garmin claim to have turn-by-turn directions, but I’ve not experienced this. In other words, only the satellite tracking feature of the base (TOPO Maps) 67i has any benefit over what my Garmin Fenix watch can do. And there are growing options (Garmin and others) for satellite tracking and messaging.

    So to that satellite tracking… my satellite tracking (InReach) account tells me that it’s tracked around 80 miles of walks in its first three weeks, which has sent 155 ten-minute interval tracking points. As these are charged at 10p each on my Safety Plan and the month has another week to run (of say another 50 tracking-points), that’ll be about £20 to add to this month’s £12.99 base-cost of the plan. But this is peak walking season for me, and this minimum-level plan will still work-out at better value throughout the year than the more expensive Recreation Plan (double the price but unlimited tracking). In the first month, I’ve sent 27 ‘free’ check-in messages (a set of 3 preset messages such as “I’m fine”) and 1 free-text message (of 10 included in the plan). I’m hiking on the hills partially to escape such things, but if you are more indispensable than I you’d be paying 50p per free-text message.

    So, satellite tracking has been a brilliant reassurance after breaking an ankle on an easy walk last year where I was barely able to get a phone signal to someone to assist me off the hill to hospital. But what made the device worth more than other satellite tracking devices for me was adding in the Ordnance Survey maps card. I have a bug-bear about the auto-zoom switch from 1:50,000 to 1:25,000 and vice-versa (which cannot be altered) because it stays in 1:50,000 a click too long so that one sees 1:50,000 magnified rather than the 1:25,000 at roughly the size it’d be on an OS Map. This means that 1:25,000 maps are always magnified, and consequently one sees less map of the landscape. This can be important when trying to head to a distant wall boundary which is just not represented on the 1:50,000 map, but for the most part it’s OK. It’s worth that slight frustration to have the whole of these two scales of UK-wide maps available on a robust device with mega-battery times.

    On that battery… yesterday’s four-hour hike was satellite-tracking at ten-minute intervals, with 3 satellite preset messages sent, following a course and then a ‘trac back’ to the start. The map screen was on OS Maps at mostly 1:25,000 scale displayed, and consulted perhaps 10 times at say a couple of minutes per instance with some zooming in and out to see the names of peaks, wall-breaks, check water-courses, etc. and paused for a lunch. It was set at 80% screen brightness and activity-tracking (internally as well as the 10-minute satellite tracking) set to ‘most frequent’. On returning to charge 5.5 hours after leaving home, the device reported a 76% battery level. That’s enough for me so I can afford to be that frivolous, but there are many options to minimise the battery usage. What’s been more of a concern to me is that I now see that the waterproof rating is listed as IPX7 and yet requires a clear view of the sky. Garmin defines this as “splashes, rain or snow, showering”, and its next-level IPX6 as “heavy spray, driving rain, boat washing, outdoor use in rough sea conditions”. It’s that lack of “driving rain” in the GPSMap 67i’s waterproof rating that disturbs me – I’m hiking in the Scottish hills! Having said that, the unit has appeared to deal with extreme driving rain for at least an hour on one occasion which I wish could be said for my boots.

    Still, without the Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps add-on (which shows field boundaries, micro-bodies of water, fords, bog/ marsh, etc) I don’t consider that the device provides value for a hiker over other satellite tracking. And it’s bulkier and heavier than the others. The device with just 1:50,000 maps add-on might be worth-it, but for me doesn’t provide enough identification of features on-the-ground to compensate for the OS’ looser representation of Scotland’s more ambiguous paths. The 1:50,000 OS maps frequently show full paths/ tracks in Scotland that the 1:25,000 OS map doesn’t… and the latter is frequently the one representing on-the ground conditions best. Scotland’s responsible-right-of-access comes with an equal right to irresponsibly or accidentally wander into problematic territory, and that needs the best map to avoid ‘a clear easy stretch’ that in reality results in 1/2 metre of dark peat up both legs and forearms.

    When the GPSMap 67i is paired with 1:25,000 maps, it provides real benefit and reassurance… at a real big price. I’m pleased to have my Garmin Fenix watch to do the nitty-gritty turn-by-turn stuff whilst the 67i gets on with the glamour of its sat-tracking, international rescue and OS Maps magic-in-a-box. On that note, the Fenix talks with the 67i so that satellite tracking can be activated from the watch, preset satellite messages can be sent and the satellite SOS can be initiated – but all of which can be done from the 67i itself.

    Which brings up the matter of the numerous Garmin apps residing (in my case) on iPhone. Between Garmin Connect, Garmin Explorer and Garmin Messenger (putting aside the Garmin IQ app that can help with updates), they each assist in different ways with course import, synchronisation of activities, and satellite messaging. I find Garmin Connect best for course import, and with activity synchronisation with other activity eco-systems like Strava and Apple Health. The Garmin Explorer app is annoyingly distinct from the Garmin Explorer web site, and feels overloaded with visual stuff as a default. Garmin Messenger’s main claim appears to be that it’ll try to send a message by your existing phone SMS connection before using a satellite message. For me, I like to know how a message has been sent since they are distinctly different on the receiver’s end, and if it goes by satellite then each and every reply from the recipient will rack up 50p against your satellite account. It all takes a bit of getting used to to work out what ‘workflow’ is best for the individual. If I wasn’t so afraid of the result, I’d advocate that Garmin take all their different legacy apps and web sites and begin again, incorporating the functionality into one app and site.

    I expected adding another Garmin device to what I already owned to be a bit like adding to Apple devices. For it to just appear; for it to function in a logically-similar way to the previous device from the same manufacturer, for it to use the same kind of terminologies, share the same technical under-pinning. Plug it in and get on with it? Not here. This is my third Garmin device but the activity watches and activity GPS/ satellite devices’ similarities end at the Garmin logo and black case. Expect the first days, if not weeks, of use to be about working out the discrepancies between the reductive basic user guide and what the watch actually does. About trying to work out in real-world application the difference between a course, a route, a track, an activity, one type of tracking vs another type. Then there’s routing – which can happen on a route, a course or a track. And which is different for each. When you ask for help or explanation, expect to be left with the feeling that the person responding is trying to explain the inexplicable. In short – just be prepared for contradictions and some frustration.

    Owning a Garmin device like the 67i can be perplexing. Be prepared to be told by Garmin that things which are plainly stupidly-illogical (like being prevented from hiking down a one-way street in the opposite direction to vehicular traffic) are a ‘design feature’ rather than a bug/ error. But behind it all is a device that helps – with OS mapping – to reduce the potential for danger whilst hiking, and – with satellite tracking/SOS – helps to reduce the potential severity of consequence. And all the while provides reassurance for those back home. That’s a heck of a bonus… and in the UK with OS Maps added is a heck of a price. The map bundle helps to mitigate that.

    BUT… my recommendation is to either buy the Garmin GPSMap 67i with OS Maps bundled *OR* buy a cheaper satellite tracker.

    (Rating would be 5 stars, but star deducted for the expensive total cost with OS Maps, and another star deducted for the poor user guide and Garmin’s silly justifications of poor ‘design features’. Remember that a satellite subscription has to be factored into cost too.)
