Use the Bivy Stick to turn your cell phone into a satellite communication device. With global satellite coverage via the Iridium satellite network, anywhere you have a view of the sky, you can communicate through the Bivy Stick. While conveniently compact, the Bivy Stick still offers a comprehensive feature set including two-way text messaging, SOS, location sharing, one-touch Checkin, and detailed weather reports sent straight to your cell phone via satellite. Additionally, offering a feature not provided with many other satellite communicators, the Bivy Stick provides users with a dedicated phone number and email. This important feature allows unsolicited incoming messages, meaning that those that are most important to you can reach you at any time, without the need for you to initiate contact.
The value of the Bivy Stick is further enhanced via key accessories such as the large variety of available mounting options. The many available mounts allow users to attach the Bivy Stick to any vehicle, backpack or structure and make it an ideal device for adventurers who find themselves going from one activity to another. The available portable and lightweight solar panel also provides for greater flexibility of use. Featuring intelligent charging technology, the solar panel allows users to efficiently harness solar power and conveniently extend the battery life of the Bivy Stick while off grid.
