I’d like to introduce our newest member to our family here! The Zoleo Satellite Communicator. This small but durable piece of Sat hardware has been so much fun to play with. It provided me with days of usage on its 200+ hours of batter life. Even then it was checking for signal every 12 minutes!
It was great to see it acquire signal within 60 seconds almost every time we powered it up. And while my wife wasn’t sure whether all the dings from my location check-ins were a good thing or a new annoying thing as I forgot to tell her I was demoing this new toy. I think she has settled on the side of enjoying knowing where I am while out playing.
Biggest thing for me, it gave me a permanent phone number that doesn’t change to give all my friends to text while in the back country. This was a BIG step up from Garmin inReach and the dynamic SMS# system they use.
Thanks Todd Fitzpatrick at Roadpost Canada for getting us set up as Vernon’s newest home of the Zoleo Communicator! THIS THING ROCKS!
