What Iridium says about this device…
“Iridium GO! enables satellite connectivity for your mobile devices where terrestrial networks cannot. Simply flip up the integrated antenna and the battery-powered unit connects quickly and automatically to the Iridium LEO satellite constellation. You can easily connect up to five devices to the Iridium GO! via Wi-Fi and operate one device at a time within a 30 meter radius from Iridium GO!
You can take Iridium GO! anywhere. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket and, like other Iridium devices, tough enough to withstand rain, sand, dust and rough use. It can be carried, easily stowed in your backpack, or mounted in vehicles, aircraft and boats for mobile applications.
Iridium GO! supports a full range of global communications, including voice calls, SMS and apps for email, social media and weather in satellite mode.”
