Very affordable, crystal-clear voice with good regional coverage.

The Globalstar GSP-1700 lacks some coverage, but offers the best data speeds and voice clarity on the market. With the push of a few buttons, you can also receive your longitude and latitude coordinates. Where applicable, a local phone number can be acquired to make calling more affordable for other nearby party members. If your remote conversations demand crystal-clear voice quality for an affordable price, this GSP 1700 phone will suit your needs. In fact, a free Globalstar phone offer is available and the company is in the process of boosting its coverage area—a small one-time network improvement fee will apply.

Staying Connected Anywhere

Imagine being able to connect to the people and data that matter most - in the places and times that traditional communications don't always work. The GSP-1700 is the ultimate handheld portable satellite phone. Using the optional GIK-1700 installation kit, you can easily create a complete satellite phone system in your vehicle or vessel from the smallest car to the largest aircraft carrier. Antenna and cable length options were designed for ease of installation on land or sea - or simply use the phone hands-free with the optional industrial noise-canceling headset.
