  • New Satellite Communicator, Zoleo

    It uses the Iridium satellite network, same as Garminís inReach devices. I was surprised that Garmin didnít have an exclusive license to block competitors.

    The Zoleo has similar features to inReach with a phone app as the interface and SOS capability through GEOS. The user gets an actual phone number for text messaging and email when in cell reception range. It does not have tracking or a screen/interface on the device. Thus if the phone is not operative you only have one-way SOS and a one-button message-sending capabilities, unlike inReach on which you can 2-way message with SAR without a phone (though inconvenient).
