The Bivy Stick is the PERFECT companion to my Iridium Satellite phone. Allows me to have full GPS Tracking Portal capabilities to allow my friends and family watch my treks.
Been using mine for about six months now and couldn't be happier with it. No more carrying around a satellite phone in my pack. It seriously works just as I wanted to; as advertised!! Love the service and Apollo has been the best to work with as well; thanks to everyone at Apollo for all their help.
Was shopping around for an affordable device to connect my phone (and our employee's phones as well) via a satellite network and noticed these majorly dropped in price. We already have a few in our system and are very happy with them and were hoping to find something cheaper; wow was I surprised, huge drop in price!! Luckily we picked the perfect time to shop to upgrade! We have another batch on the way and can't wait to get everyone else on our team hooked up; makes everything so much easier for us.
Just got back from a trip and using my Bivy Stick for the first time, works quite well, no complaints. I kept in touch with home and they were able to keep an eye on me throughout my whole trek out west; start to finish!
