Seamless global messaging for smartphones is here! ZOLEO connects with one’s smartphone or tablet to provide messaging that follows them in and out of cell coverage, plus safety features they can count on worldwide. When outside cell coverage, ZOLEO uses the Iridium satellite network — the only network to cover 100% of Earth, including all landmasses, oceans and Polar Regions — to send or receive messages. When within cell coverage, ZOLEO delivers messages over cellular and Wi-Fi. What’s more, the user’s contacts can proactively reach out by sending a message to the user’s ZOLEO dedicated SMS number and email address.

Safety is paramount, no matter the location or ambition of anyone’s next overlanding adventure. With ZOLEO, one can trigger SOS alerts, request non-emergency medical advice, send check-in messages, receive weather forecasts, and even share their GPS location. Built for the toughest of adventures, the ZOLEO device is shock, dust and water-resistant, making it a rugged companion.

Monthly plans range from $20 for 25 satellite messages to $50 for an unlimited amount. All plans include unlimited SOS messaging with 24/7 emergency response monitoring, a dedicated ZOLEO SMS number, and email address and the flexibility to change, suspend, or cancel the plan after the first three months.

For $6 a month, ZOLEO users can also subscribe to the Location Share+ add-on. This optional feature enhances the ZOLEO experience by enabling the user to automatically share their location with their check-in contacts, on a user-selected interval, leaving a breadcrumb trail viewable on map.

MSRP: $199.00
