InReach turning on inside of backpack

Yesterday I opened my backpack at a trail head to find my Garmin InReach Explore+ turned on inadvertently with the battery essentially dead... I noticed that for some reason now my GPS does not require the confirmation selection of "turn on" to power the device. I use to have to [power button] -> [left button] -> [check button] to power the device. I cannot find a setting to regain this behavior. Was there a software update??? This seems like a step in the wrong direction and now I will have to worry about storing my GPS in a location it is less likely to get activated

Does anyone know how to change the startup sequence to what I describe? Breaking out the map and compass although a good refresher was not what I was planning on.

  • The feature has been removed. You can try contacting tech support to let them know you don't like it. I'm sure there are a lot of people who agree with you (myself included). However, none of the newer iR devices have this feature. Somebody at Garmin has decided it's not needed - field experience notwithstanding. So I doubt that they're going to put it back.
