Bivy® Stick is an ultralight 2-way satellite communicator. The tiny device weighs only 100 grams but offers global coverage through the Iridium satellite network. Simply pair it to your iOS or Android smartphone and an easy-to-use smartphone app 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.
Weather Reports: With Bivy Stick, uncertainty about weather will never ruin an outdoor adventure again. Simply download a 3-day or 7-day weather forecast for your current location.
SOS Button: In an emergency, an SOS button on the Bivy Stick device lets you initiate a message to Global Rescue. While the emergency continues, stay connected with your rescuers via two-way messaging.
Service Fees: Bivy Stick service is available in the form of prepaid vouchers. There are no usage charges ever! All usage is free, regardless of the number of texts you send or the number of location reports you share. You can download local weather forecasts as often as you like. Service includes a US mobile number to make sending texts from a cell phone to the Bivy Stick easy. Service also includes basic monitoring by Global Rescue of any SOS alerts you issue from the Bivy Stick. For complete details, see the prepaid service agreement.
