Product Description

Iridium GO Rental

Your smartphone will work anywhere on the planet.

Iridium GO! creates the first ever reliable global connection for voice calling and text messaging using your own smartphone or tablet, as\ well as provides enhanced data capabilities offered through optimized apps to meet your unique needs. No worries. No roaming charges. Just connected and in touch wherever you are, whenever you need, with the devices you rely on every day.

Take personal communications even further

Iridium GO! is unlike anything the world has seen before. Powered by the world’s furthest reaching network, this compact, rugged and portable unit dramatically extends the capabilities of your smartphone or tablet – anywhere on the planet.

Transform your smartphone

Iridium GO! instantly transforms your trusted device into a global communications powerhouse. For weekend warriors, individuals, enterprises or governments, for anyone who is on the move, out of range or off the grid – by land or at sea or in the air – Iridium GO! provides global voice and text messaging for smartphone users with data capabilities offered through optimized apps on up to 5 mobile devices.

Critical connectivity for all

No matter who you are, the ability to conduct business, connect with friends and family, access information, respond rapidly to any situation or simply stay in touch is critical, particularly beyond the reach of terrestrial networks.

Iridium GO! simplifies global communications for:

  • Recreational Marine
  • Adventurers and explorers
  • Emergency and first responders
  • General aviation
  • Remote residents and vacationers
  • Government and NGOs
  • Foreign missions
  • Military operations
  • Global and business travelers
  • Executives and diplomats
  • Global enterprise
  • Anyone out of cellular range

A Personal Communications Revolution


Iridium GO! enables satellite connectivity for your mobile devices
where terrestrial networks cannot. Simply flip up the integrated antenna
and the battery-powered unit connects quickly and automatically to
the Iridium LEO satellite constellation, enabling connectivity for your
smartphone or tablet within an approximate 30 meter (100 foot) radius.
You can easily connect and operate multiple devices within this area
using the Iridium GO! applications.


Iridium GO! supports a full range of global communications
using optimized apps:

  • Voice calls
  • Text messaging
  • Email access
  • Weather updates
  • Customized third-party apps
  • Emergency alerts (SOS)
  • Photo sharing
  • GPS tracking
  • Posting to Facebook/Twitter


You can take Iridium GO! anywhere. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket
and, like other Iridium devices, tough enough to withstand rain, sand,
dust and rough use. It can be carried, easily stowed in your backpack,
or used in vehicles, aircraft, and boats for mobile applications.


Combining the best that both satellite and cellular phones offer,
Iridium GO! is an industry first in a whole new category of personal
satellite connectivity devices. It is also a powerful development
platform for Iridium partners to build optimized applications, extending
communication capabilities even further in remote locations.


Iridium GO! is an affordable solution for truly global connectivity.
It leverages and extends your existing trusted devices, is compatible
with Apple® and Android™ operating systems, and eliminates roaming
charges. It allows connections to be shared among multiple users and
is supported by affordable rate plans that keep voice and data costs

Robust Line of Accessories:

External antenna, wall mount bracket, outdoor power cable, and carry
bag (sold separately).
