We used GTC for the first time and we only had 24 hours before our flight, however Dan pulled it out the bag and got us the phone before we departed for the mountainous region of norther Pakistan.
The tracked satellite phone gave us security and an emergency back up in the event of an accident or issues.
Great job, great product, great value…..
Well done Dan and the team.
