Small Phone, Huge Advantages:

Enjoy crystal-clear voice quality, position location service—get your Latitude and Longitude directly from your Globalstar phone and a locally-based phone number to reduce calling costs.

With the Globalstar GSP-1700 satellite phone you can view your latitude and longitude directly on the display screen and you’ll enjoy exceptionally clear audio quality thanks to Globalstar’s new satellite network.

Unlike Iridium phones, every Globalstar satellite phone comes with a locally-based phone number—no more confusing international dialing procedures required. This also makes it cheaper for people to call your globalstar satellite phone from their landline or cellular phones.

Using the optional GIK-1700 installation kit, you can easily create a complete satellite phone system in your vehicle or maritime vessel.

Get Online with Globalstar Express Data

Express Data service is included FREE with most Globalstar service plans. See Airtime Pricing for current rates.

Globalstar Express Data will accelerate web-based file transfers, uploading and downloading of all native FTP file transfers, and all types of email from simple web-based email systems like Hotmail and Yahoo Mail to POP3 and SMTP based email systems such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express and Microsoft Exchange. Additionally, email attachments including Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and others will also be accelerated.

Download Globalstar Express Data Software

Globalstar advertises that Express Data will accelerate web browsing, which it technically does. However, Express Data provides a maximum compressed data speed of 28kbps. Realistically, this is simply too slow for an effective, efficient and enjoyable web browsing experience—so we do not recommend it. That being said, it is quite suitable for downloading information like GRIB weather files.
