Description

Unreachable should be up to you. Connecting to your phone via Bluetooth™, the Bivy Stick turns your phone into a satellite communicator; send and receive texts and emails, send GPS tracks, check-in with loved ones and even call for help, from anywhere on earth, no cell signal needed (subscription required). For the times you want to leave your phone behind, the Bivy stick can still check-in and call for help all on its own. Each communicator gets its own email address and phone number (for texts), so friends and family can stay in touch just like the normally would.
