Why did we choose the Isatphone Pro?We have traveled a lot in Southern Africa and often on our own in very remote areas without cellphone reception. It made us realize that if something would happen, it might take weeks before someone would find us. Although it's a very special feeling just the two of you far away from civilization, we decided safety first - which means buying a satellite phone. If you travel more than 4 months, buying is a better option than renting. There are a few satellite networks, the most important are the Iridium network and the Inmarsat network. Although the Iridium network has the best coverage in the whole world, we choose the Inmarsat network.
As you can see their coverage fails mainly on the North and the South Pole, but they are not part of our route so no worry there!
Let's hope it won't be necessary to use the phone for emergency situations - just for pleasure :-)
