Other differences to InReach Explorer+:
On the GPSMAP86i is currently not yet possible weather retrieval via Iridium. Will probably follow with update from fall 2019
On the Explorer+, the OSM maps for the whole world are available for free, on the GPSMAP66i at least the GARMIN maps (except for Europe) are chargeable. However, there is a wealth of Garmin-compatible maps on the net that can also be loaded onto the 66i via "Garmin BaseCamp".
