The Iridium GO!® is a small Iridium Wi-Fi hotspot that enables your smartphone to make phone calls or send text messages over the global Iridium network. The Iridium GO! is a great safety tool. Use it to automatically share your location with friends via text or email.


  • Up to 7 hours of phone calls on a single charge

  • Can connect up to 5 smartphone simultaneously

  • Perfect for making phone calls, text messages, and sending GPS tracking reports

  • S.O.S. Button: In an emergency, a single button press can send an email alert tagged as an EMERGENCY which includes your GPS location. This can be done directly from the Iridium GO! without a smart device or using the Iridium GO! app on your smart device. How it the S.O.S. button works depends on how you configure it. A very popular choice is to configure it to contact Global Emergency Response Services or GEOS. Configuration is required, and before using GEOS, you must register online and configure the S.O.S. button to contact GEOS during an emergency.

Applications for an Iridium GO! include the following:

  • Making phone calls and sending texts

  • Light-use email applications (under 10 emails per hour with attachments under 100KB)

Is Iridium GO! Fast Enough?

To be clear, Iridium GO! has a data rate of 2.4 kps. That is very slow by modern standards. Specialized apps that have been optimized for Iridium GO! are required to send email or download GRIB weather files. Iridium-approved apps include the Iridium GO! app, Iridium Mail & Web app, SailMail app (for email), PredictWind Offshore app (for GRIB files) and iNavX app (for navigation). Support for third-party apps must be provided by the app provider, not Outfitter Satellite. Applications that require high speed or broadband internet access like intensive email communication or web browsing are not suitable for the Iridium GO!. Other common applications such as video, FaceBook, Instagram, Netflix, Skype, Snapchat, Twitter, and YouTube are not suitable for Iridium GO!. The new Iridium GO! exec is a portable solution with internet access speeds up to 88 kbps down and 22 kbps up. That is obviously much faster that the 2.4 kbps available from Iridium GO!. Inmarsat BGAN offers relatively small portable terminals with even faster data speeds, up to 492 kbps up/down. Beyond that Iridium Certus terminals like the MissionLINK 700 and VesselLINK 700 which are intended for vehicle and maritime applications offer data speeds up to 700 kbps. Please call us for more information.
