  1. New to sailing. I got a question. So if I tend to sail out in the ocean, my galaxy S5 which is water resistant from Tmobile and they don't charge roaming fees isn't enough? I need to get a satellite phone or what? Responses much appreciated.

  2. I used this for a year and just switch to sat phone, pairing to phone is sketchy,you are never 100% sure that the black box is doing what it is supposed to do,confusing led status. Go with either the gen3 or the global phone

  3. Frankly, am not that happy with TEKHD #CES coverage. They could just sit and talk about everything at #CES for one hour, instead of these small stupid videos which don't actually cover everything.
