SMS Text Data Without Internet

Satellite phones and cell phones are wonderful when you have connectivity. What about when you don't? Now you can use your SMS enabled device and the Satellite West App to get vital information without Internet connectivity. You just need a SMS device (like Zoleo) and SMS satellite service account.


The Satellite West App stores lookup codes for Marine Weather, Aviation Weather, Ocean Buoys, Lat-Lon Location, and more in the app. You don't need to be connected to the Internet to retrieve a lookup number. Then simply enter that number in your SMS device and get the requested information returned as an SMS message.

SMS satellite service is less costly than phone service, but like the phone service, it works anywhere. Pairing SMS service with the Zoleo is an affordable way to retrieve vital information without a sat phone, wherever you are.
