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, with the recipient receiving simple yet elegant tracking messages via email with links they can click to see your position on Google maps. 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. Works very well.

    Mark Smith

    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.

    Lifesafer in a accident

    Mario Wacker

    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.
