    Send a message through your device to an email address or SMS number. Not all mobile networks allow you to send text messages to satellite networks and as a result text messaging can be unreliable. Please check with your provider or contact us for further information.


    Automated tracking is available on this device meaning contacts back home can follow your journey or you can monitor the movement of your assets.


    Once the emergency button is pressed on your beacon, your location will be sent to a rescue coordination centre via satellite. This SOS is then diverted to emergency services near to your location to aid rescue. The location will be continuously sent for a minimum of 24 hours.


    This unit will allow you the ability to type, and send a custom message to friends, family or colleagues.  This is ideal to keep in contact when on the move.


    Setup frequently used messages before your trip which can be sent at the touch of a button with no need for typing e.g. running late, arrived safely.


    Messages can be sent and received by this device.
