Why We Like The ZOLEO Satellite Communicator

We count on the ZOLEO Satellite Communicator to extend our smartphone messaging coverage for when we head off the grid, just about anywhere on Earth, providing a safety system that we know we can trust. Fully featured for the natural wild, this rugged location-aware and Iridium-based satellite communicator device offers built-in Check-in and SOS buttons to help keep us safe, even if our phones are dead or damaged. Plus, with such an affordable price tag, we don't think there's much of an excuse to venture into the backcountry without one.

A new feature to ZOLEO, the Location Share+ automatically shares a location with check-in contacts anywhere from every six minutes to every four hours. Location Share+ is an optional add-on subscription*, that includes unlimited Location Share+ and check-in messages! *Note: Additional charges apply; can be canceled any time.

Staying Connected

I've used it several times

This little device is MEGA!!! Easy to setup and allows you to stay connected with family and friends in the backcountry. I would highly recommend this device for any one that wants to stay safe and connected in the backcountry.

Great Communication in the backcountry

I've put it through the wringer

I am loving my ZOLEO. Super easy to set up with my iphone. Just add the free app and connect the device via bluetooth. Once set up, you get your dedicated SMS number which you can share with emergency contacts and friends. The device automatically switches from cellular or wifi to satellite so you never miss messages. Perfect for hut trips, camping trips, or just traveling. It gives my wife peace of mind knowing she can always reach me and I can send her check in messages so she knows we are on schedule. Just a great device and the dark sky weather app is a great perk.

Works awesome - seamless app

I've put it through the wringer

I love my ZOLEO. I find it is very easy to pair with my phone and send text messages or short e-mails. The ZOLEO has a unique feature that it tries to send messages using cellular or wi-fi before using the Iridium satellite network. This saves you money! ZOLEO supports check-in and SOS alerting via the built-in buttons so even if your phone is out of battery power. Key point as my phone seems to die often. Battery life is 200 hours and it charges in 2 hours. Seems to hold a charge well and I have had no issues with it. The outer case is tough and has a rubberized finish that is water, dust and shockproof. Good to know as I keep it attached to the outside of my pack.
