Iridium 9575 Extreme Satellite Phone

Iridium 9575 Extreme Satellite Phone. Originally conceived by Motorola more than a decade ago, the Iridium satellite phones have evolved into the highly desirable 9575 Extreme that we have today. The incorporation of a GPS and SOS button as well as a military-grade durability specification should find appeal with land-mobile and oceanic users alike, while Ashbury SatCom’s optional professional website tracking service enables the Iridium Extreme to be used for remote worker monitoring and workforce management applications too.

Where safety is key, the Iridium 9575 Extreme satellite phone is unparalleled with its innovation in safety and tracking features. Iridium 9575 Extreme satellite phone can be configured to send GPS position reports at automatic intervals, alternatively Ashbury SatCom also offer an advanced web-based tracking subscription service which more professional tracking features such as historic trails. The SOS button on the Iridium 9575 Extreme is monitored by GEOS from where Iridium 9575 Extreme customers can also purchase optional search and rescue travel insurance if desired.

Iridium Extreme is the easiest to use of all our phones, registers on the Iridium network lightning fast, and can receive calls with the antenna stowed away. Friends and family can send texts to Iridium Extreme free of charge using a web app that we give all our subscribers access to. It is also possible to use the Iridium 9575 Extreme satellite phone for very basic data applications, however Iridium’s innovation in Satellite WiFi HotSpots means that Iridium now has an even more viable product for data applications – see the Iridium GO in our shop.

  1. 5 out of 5 Iridium Extreme

    (verified owner)

    After several months of usage, I can state that I did a right choice.
    Iridium Extreme is workable solution, if you need connection with the world at very remote areas. I only use it for voice calls, so cannot judge the data. However, calls are working reliably, Have very few troubles and less dropped calls than expected (hopefully the promised Iridium Next will improve this).
    Care from the Ashbury was exceptional from the very beginning, so I really can be considered as satisfied customer.

  2. 5 out of 5 Iridium 9575 Extreme Satellite Phone, solar charger and accessories

    We have been using this equipment for two years in an extremely remote location cut off from air travel and only accessible seasonably by sea. The equipment has worked faultlessly, giving us an essential lifeline for telephone and email communications. Ashbury Satcom has provided exceptional service in the provision of the equipment and in advice on its use. I highly endorse Ashbury Satcom and would recommend them to anyone needing reliable satellite communications equipment and a back up service giving excellent customer confidence.

    5 out of 5 St Helena Emergency Planning

    St Helena is a remote Island (UK overseas Territory) in the South Atlantic Ocean
    As the Emergency Planning Manager I identified that we had no external communications should our main system fail. Having purchased and used a number of the Iridium Extremes as Emergency back up in the UK, I had no hesitation in contacting Ashbury again for their expert help and support in supplying a new phone.
    One technical hitch we had was that the Iridium would not connect to the Islands new mobile phone network however when I reported this to their Technical Support they resolved it within 24 hours.

  7. 4 out of 5 Works very well.

    I bought the extreme recently due to failings in operation of a main competitor’s product. The extreme works very well, I use it in the sailing world and like the facility of the GEOS SOS button coupled with facility to buy SAR insurance cover relatively cheaply for my voyage to Svaldard this summer.

    5 out of 5 Very Robust

    I bought the Iridium Extreme several years ago from Ashbury. The service has always been fantastic. I use the phone during my Rally duties in remote areas and it has served me very well. I use the phone to let family know I’m safe and although Its not heavily used at all, knowing I am able to summons assistance in remote placed give perfect piece of mind. The phone itself is very robust and tough. perfect for the outdoor life.
    Charles at Ashbury is always very helpful and I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking at this great Tech.

  12. 5 out of 5 Peace of mind.

    We use the Iridium commercially in Iceland. It gives our company, venture 4×4 Ltd, the peace of mind knowing that we can always get comms even if miles away from anywhere. Over the years we have had excellent service from Ashbury – Both the phone and company recommended Andrew Fisher, Managing Director.

    4 out of 5 Lifesafer in a accident

    I bought the Iridium Extreme in 2011, it was the year when this phone came on the market. It worked well, but the voice transmission sometimes was not that good. Ashbury made a recall for all first edition Iridium Extreme. Because I sailed around the world, I had a delay of more than a year, to send it back. I never had any problems with my wishes and now the phone works good. As this phone with a GPS is my lifesafer in a accident, there is no other system, which works more efficient. My only wishes for the perfect phone would be: The phone is protected for 5m underwater, charging batteries by induction and no plugs on the outside.
    Kind regards Mario Wacker.-
    I would recomend myself, to test ore better, to create the perfect product for extreme use.

    • Hi Mario,

      Thanks for your review. Those are some very good suggestions for a future Iridium phone indeed! I wonder if anyone from Iridum is reading this 🙂

  14. 5 out of 5 Sailing adventure

    Hi, we bought the Extreme for a retirement sailing adventure. The handset & service have both been faultless, lots of helpful advice during the learning curve from Ashbury. The reassuring feature that we particularly like is the emergency button at the top of the handset. It is good to know that if danger threatens, either of us can press the button for immediate help having joined GEOS.

  15. 5 out of 5 Great Purchase

    Love my Sat phone share it with my husband who rally drives in extreme parts of the world , While I take it on my riding Safaris … it works equally well at our home on Exmoor as there is NO mobile signal on parts of the moor. All in all a great purchase and good to feel safe in case of an emergency.

    5 out of 5 Great Product.

    I bought an Iridium 9575 Extreme from Ashbury a few years ago for a very remote trip to the Northern Territory of Australia. I’ve since done a number of trips to this region, plus several others to remote areas of the USA and Africa. It’s a great product that is reliable and has gotten us out of a number of scrapes. Highly recommend it!

    Ashbury have been excellent over the years also. Can’t recommend them enough. They’ve gone out of their way to help me a number of times.
