Network and features
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, enabling connectivity for your smartphone or tablet within an approximate 30 meter (100 foot) radius. You can easily connect and operate multiple devices within this area using the Iridium GO! applications.
Iridium GO! supports a full range of global communications using optimized apps:
- Voice calls
- Text messaging
- Email access
- Weather updates
- Emergency alerts (SOS)
- Photo sharing
- GPS tracking
- Posting to Facebook/Twitter
- Customized third-party apps
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 used in vehicles, aircraft and boats for mobile applications.
Combining the best that both satellite and cellular phones offer, Iridium GO! is an industry first in a whole new category of personal satellite connectivity devices. It is also a powerful development platform for Iridium partners to build optimized applications, extending communication capabilities even further in remote locations.
Iridium GO! is an affordable solution for truly global connectivity. It leverages and extends your existing trusted devices, is compatible with Apple® and Android™ operating systems, and eliminates roaming charges. It allows connections to be shared among multiple users and is supported by affordable rate plans that keep voice and data costs reasonable.
