Survival Day 108 (goTenna – Off-Grid Text & GPS)

This Off-Grid Text & GPS system may be the best piece of survival gear you will ever buy. I’ve taken it on international trips and used it so my family can text and stay in touch without paying for roaming. With these goTennas we were able to continue to use our phones to text without having to worry about having to pay my service provider an arm and a leg.

As an added bonus, these goTennas don’t rely on local cell towers and thus don’t care when the power goes out in a big way. As long as my phones have juice we can still text each other (while within range). As long as your cell has batteries you can keep using your goTennas.

Being able to quickly and quietly communicate during my bolt hole run or when scavenging is a huge worry – that just went away. I keep one set of goTennas with my Bug Out Stuff and another at my Bolt Hole. I also make sure my buddies (the ones I want to survive) also keep a set with their hunting gear. They aren’t believers in the ZA, but they understand the utilities these goTennas have in todays world, which is enough for now.

Turn Your Smartphone Into An Off-Grid Communication Tool.

– Lightweight, weatherproof and easy to use, goTenna turns your iOS or Android device into an off-grid communicator, so you can text and share locations on detailed offline maps, no matter what.

– State-of-the-art cognitive digital radio creates its own 100% off-grid signal and coordinates with other units within range so you can text privately — 1-to-1 or with a group — or broadcast openly to any nearby goTenna.

– As easy to use as any messaging app, except goTenna works when all others won’t! State-of-the-art digital cognitive radio eliminates need for channels, squelch coes and interference — and enables delivery confirmation receipts in certain private chats.

– Apps include detailed offline maps — free to download for any region in the world — so you can locate yourself and others while enjoying the outdoors, travel, and crowded events or even during emergencies.

– Sold in pairs so you stay connected to at least 1 friend (and anyone else using goTenna) when there’s no cellular coverage or Wi-Fi available. goTenna is great for any off-grid group activities.

Stay Connected On Any Adventure — No Service Required.

goTenna is the first and only way to use your smartphone to communicate even when there’s no cell coverage or wifi. goTenna generates its own radio signal so you can easily communicate with others, no matter what.

Activate goTenna and wirelessly pair to your iOS or Android device via Bluetooth. Attach goTenna to your gear and forget it’s there. Use the app to send texts and share GPS locations on offline maps with others, up to several miles away.

goTenna comes in pairs, but can connect to all goTennas within range. Create networks as big or small as you need. Perfect for any off-grid group activities: outdoors, travel, crowded events, and emergencies!
