IsatPhone Pro offers high-quality satellite telephony, text and e-mail messaging. Location data can also be viewed and sent in as a text message. “The IsatPhone has a high quality voice service with a Bluetooth wireless interface, which allows the user to have satellite visibility even if the handset is kept in a stationary state,” Melton adds.
