thinking this would be a great idea for the boat
ya - got one. It's about $38/mo fee when in use. Better than the One Spot - in that you can email what you text.
we used this in Noodka for two weeks and it worked great! now, we bring it on any big boat trips, and its also nice to have on the logging roads out in port renfrew!
We just ordered 40 of them for work. I have not personally used them, but some of our guys have and they have nothing but good things to say. They work better than a sat phone because they only need one satellite instead of three for the phone.
You can text out and receive up to 200 characters. Plus you can email and receive emails as well.
They're also on the iridium network as opposed to globalstar like SPOTs are so way better reception just like the difference in phones.
