Outfitter Satellite recommends Globalstar for users operating within the Primary Globalstar Service Area indicated by the ORANGE color on the coverage map. Some of the Primary Globalstar Service Area is within the Home Zone and some is outside the Home Zone where roaming fees would apply. Home Zone calls are calls made or received while operating the Globalstar phone is inside the Home Zone and also using a Globalstar gateway that is inside the Home Zone. Additional long-distance charges apply for mobile-originated calls terminating outside the Home Zone or calls made to other Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) such as Iridium, Thuraya, or Inmarsat. Roaming charges apply if the Globalstar phone is used while it is roaming outside the Home Zone or a call is connected through a Globalstar gateway that is outside the Home Zone.
- PRIMARY COVERAGE (or Primary Globalstar Service Area) is indicated by ORANGE on the map below. Globalstar service is a satellite radio technology subject to transmission limitations caused by type of terrain, service area limits, customer equipment use and other variable conditions including the functionality and orbital locations of the satellites themselves.
- FRINGE COVERAGE (or Fringe Globalstar Service Area) is indicated by the GRAY AREA WITH DIAGONAL LINES. In this area, signal level on a Globalstar satellite phone can be expected to be weak.
- HOME ZONE areas are indicated by the area outlined by GREEN lines. In the Home Zone there are no roaming charges when registered on a Home Zone gateway.
