How it Works
You can now connect anywhere on Earth, even in places where you think it’s impossible to get a normal mobile connection, so long as the Iridium GO! unit has clear line of sight to the satellites. It’s as easy as connecting your smartphone or tablet with the GO! unit.
Simply flip up the integrated antenna and the battery-powered unit connects quickly and automatically to the Iridium LEO satellite constellation to create an anywhere Wi-Fi hotspot within approximately a 30 meter (100 foot) radius. Watch the Iridium GO! tutorial to learn more.
Iridium GO! supports a full range of global communications, including:
• Voice Calls
• Email Access
• Social Networking
• Photo Sharing
• SMS Two-Way
• GPS Tracking
• SOS Alert
The Iridium GO! is small enough to fit in your pocket, and like other Iridium devices, tough enough to withstand rain, sand, dust and rough use. It can easily be:
