Bivy® Stick is the smallest and simplest two-way satellite communication device that Outfitter Satellite has ever offered. It provides global coverage via the highly reliable Iridium satellite network. Bivy Stick weighs only 100 grams. Simply use BlueTooth to pair your smartphone with the Bivy Stick. Then an easy-to-use app on your smartphone will let you share your GPS location with friends or send and receive text messages. In an emergency, you can quickly initiate a GPS-enabled SOS message that will be sent to Global Rescue.
Easy-to-use Smartphone App: Bivy Stick works with both iPhone and Android devices, and its newly redesigned app is easier to use than ever.
Location-enhanced Weather Reports: With Bivy Stick, uncertainty about weather will never ruin an outdoor adventure again. Simply download a 3-day or 7-day weather report for your current location.
Dedicated SOS Button: In an emergency, an SOS button on the device lets you initiate a message to Global Rescue. Though your smartphone is not necessary to send an SOS message, there is also an SOS feature on the smartphone app. While the emergency continues, you can stay connected with your rescuers via two-way messaging through the Bivy Stick.
Water & Dust Resistance & Shock Rating: Bivy Stick was designed for survivability so that it will be there when you need it. It has an amazing IP67 rating against water and dust instrusion. This mean it has full protection against dust and other particulates, including a vacuum seal, tested against continuous airflow. It is also protected against full immersion in water for up to 30 minutes at depths up to 1 meter. Bivy Stick is shock proof MIL-STD-810 certified.
Permanent Mounting Options: You can mount the Bivy Stick almost anywhere using a GoPro mounting kit (not included). Just remember, like any device that uses the Iridium satellite network, the Bivy Stick does require a clear view of the sky.
