I think that it needs to be done on the app, but I'm not sure. I have the Explorer, so I'm not familiar with the SE and it's functions. Sorry.

Yes, you load the maps onto your phone using the Deloreme Earthmate map and connect the phone to your SE via Bluetooth. You can use the same app to read and reply to messages.

Something I noticed on our last trip when I checked our otherwise verifiable location using Earthmate GPS is that on one or two days, our location was consistently off by about 50-200 yds. When I say "consistently," it seemed that we were always placed 50-200 yds. to the west of where we actually were. We verified our location by simple methods such as placing ourselves between a stream and a steep cliff, and the Earthmate GPS would show us as being on top of, or behind the cliff. Other days, the Earthmate GPS seemed to be right on. This is one of the reasons we hike so slowly--we're having fun trying to make a liar out of our GPS unit. How accurate is the GAIA GPS?
