The GPS Store says it is now stocking the long-awaited Sat-Fi Satellite Hotspot by Globalstar. Going beyond cellular, Sat-Fi provides connectivity in areas outside the range of standard service.

Sat-Fi Hotspot technology relies on a modern network of satellites, creating the ideal connectivity hub for up to eight Wi-fi-enabled devices to send and receive voice calls, email and text messages.

The system uses the standard 10-digit dialing protocol for voice communications, allowing for superior connectivity and fidelity while in a remote area. Monitoring email and SMS also feels natural due to Sat-Fi’s top-of-line data speeds among comparable devices. The device can be used in vehicles, vessels or fixed-site locations.

The Globalstar Sat-Fi Hotspot is especially useful for those who need a way to stay connected in remote areas at sea or deep in the wilderness. Apart from the various benefits for marine use, other areas that stand to benefit from Sat-Fi include emergency services, park services, long distance transportation services, construction, energy and gas.

The GPS Store Inc. is based in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. For cost efficiency, the campus includes all the store’s services in one location, including the retail showroom, customer service center, sales center, warehouse and fulfillment centers.
