FAQs About Satellite Communicators

A Satellite Communicator is a portable device designed to send messages, SOS alerts, and track locations from anywhere in the world. They do this by using satellite networks instead of cellular signals, which means the coverage can reach places mobile phone signals can’t. 


Ideal for use in remote areas of Australia where traditional cell coverage is unreliable or nonexistent, these devices provide a vital link for adventurers, workers in remote areas, and anyone needing reliable communication off the grid.

Unlike traditional mobile phones that rely on cellular networks, Satellite Communicators from Johnny Appleseed GPS use satellites to transmit data, making them functional in the most remote parts of Australia and beyond. 


This capability is crucial for communication in areas without cell service. They often focus on essential communication features like SOS signals and offer rugged materials to be used as a reliable safety measure.

Johnny Appleseed GPS ensures that our Satellite Communicators are built for the rugged Australian outdoors. 


These devices are typically waterproof, dustproof, and shock-resistant, designed to withstand harsh conditions like heavy rain, dust storms, and accidental drops. Some are even suitable for deep diving or can work from high altitudes like mountains. 


This durability makes them reliable companions for activities ranging from sailing to hiking in Australia's diverse landscapes as well as anywhere in the world.

Satellite Communicators are designed for use across Australia, from densely populated cities to the most isolated Outback locations. 


They leverage global satellite networks, ensuring coverage even in areas where traditional cellular networks fail. 


This makes them an essential tool for safety and communication during outdoor adventures, work in remote areas, or any situation where reliable communication is crucial.
