The Inmarsat coverage map shown here assumes that your Inmarsat BGAN terminal's antenna has a direct line of sight with an Inmarsat I-4 satellite. Local obstructions such as mountains can block your line of sight, especially if you are operating in the mountains or you are near the edge of one of the three Inmarsat I-4 satellite foot prints where the satellite would be low on the horizon. It is the responsibility of the user to carefully consider whether the terrain may have obstructions that would block the satellite from view at that location. Outfitter Satellite can give you the elevation angle and azimuthal angle of the best satellite for any particular latitude and longitude if you provide the GPS position of the location where you intend to use the terminal.
