Sometimes you need to be absolutely sure you have the top-of-the-line, toughest equipment out there, and when it comes to satellite phones, the Iridium 9575 Extreme fits the bill admirably. Not only does it utilize the truly global, full-coverage Iridium satellite network, it's built with rugged construction that will survive the harshest conditions. This is truly the satellite phone to rely on in a life-or-death situation anywhere on Earth.

The Iridium 9575 Extreme boasts the following features:

  • ·         Dust proof, shock resistant and jet-water resistant

And that's just the composition of the handset itself. We haven't even touched on the capabilities of this tough-as-nails satellite phone. As mentioned, as an Iridium phone it connects to the only truly global satellite network, with coverage everywhere, whether land or sea, from the poles to the equator. The Iridium 9575 Extreme also has several capabilities made for staying connected and helping you out of a tight spot.

Make note of the GPS Tracking feature, which can be activated to leave a trail of "breadcrumbs" so others can follow along with the status of your journey. But perhaps the most noteworthy safety feature is the One-Touch SOS button, in which case you only need to press a single button to broadcast a distress signal with your exact location, or alternately, place a call to a predefined number.   Think about it: as long as you have a clear line of sight to the sky, all you need to be able to do is move one finger and help is on the way.

The Iridium 9575 Extreme is clearly the next level in satellite phones, and also has many accessories available to further expand its capabilities.
