    hey all - hoping someone might be able to help me. I recently purchased a Delorme InReach Explorer device and can’t get the mapshare to work. I have a professional plan that allows 2 min sharing intervals.

    I’m able to message the link to others, but when they click on it, it says URL doesn’t exist. Reading InReach support docs, it says I need to enable mapshare sharing on the “social” tab in my online account, but there ISN’T any “social” tab showing.

    I can see the tracking ONLY when looking on the maps tab.

    Help! I need to figure this out for a trip ok Thurs... thanks in advance

    Thanks for the info, but I don’t want to post to FB. I simply want to message a MapShare tracking link to someone.

    Figured it out - the social setting is under “users” for professional accounts. I have to say I was impressed with Garnin. I entered a service question and someone actually called me and walked me through it. I was expecting a black hole
