Iridium 9575 Extreme

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.

    Iridium 9575 Extreme purchase

    Johan Smit (verified owner)

    Just received my phone and all that goes along with it. Very clear and simplistic instructions and got going in no time at all.
    Have to thank Charles, Rachel & Ashbury team for the professionalism demonstrated during the purchase & delivery cycle.
    Off to the Pafuri tomorrow, so cannot wait to experience the peace of mind knowing “you can always get in touch” when the going gets tough.
    Thanks again Charles & team.

    Good value for money

    Heste de Beer

    I received my phone about 4 weeks ago and I am impressed, with the phone as well as the excellent service. I travel a lot and it allows me to stay in contact with everybody at home and make business decisions while I am in remote areas. Good value for money.

    peace of mind

    Callie Roos

    We had the Iridium Extreme now for around two years. We love travelling where there is nothing that could remind us of the city but with the Iridium we have the peace of mind that we can get hold of our kids if needed. Up to now we never had any problems where we could not use the phone – from Namibia to a remote beach in Mozambique.

    By far the best piece of equipment for off road travelling we ever invested in.

    The service from and communication with Keith and Charles are excellent I can only say THANK YOU for doing a great job and would recommend this business to anyone.

    THANK YOU

    Du toit de Beer

    I have had the Iridium Extreme now for just over a year. The most important reason for having the phone is that I can stay in contact with family, friends and colleagues no matter where I am. Up to now I have experienced no problems with either the phone or communication network.

    The compact size of the phone makes handling and carrying very easy. When travelling I store the phone in the front pocket of the Land Cruiser driver’s seat.The fact that calls can be received with the antenna down makes it possible that I can keep the phone on standby.

    As far as the service from and communication with Keith and Charles are concerned, I can only say THANK YOU for doing a great job!

    Comfort tool.

    David Evans

    I travel enormously in southern Africa and into some remote inaccessible places. I have had the Iridium Extreme for over two years now and i use it as a ‘comfort tool’ knowing that irrespective of where I am on the continent, I have contact with the outside world.

    The phone is simple to use both telephonically and for sending text messages and I would say that if you have ‘torch’ on the top of your packing list to remote places, then ‘Iridium Extreme’ must be next.

    On of the best investments I have made. Expensive but really good value.

    Happy

    Grant Cooper

    Happy with my Iridium Extreme. Bought it on recomendation that it was one of the best options for use out at sea. I decided against the Iridium go as data isn’t important to me – just need to phone the wife and kids. Even works reasonably well below deck of my fiberglass hull.

    professional service

    Admin Robbie Robbertze

    Thank you very much for the professional service I received. Keith Redford provided me with a concise overview of the technical aspects of the options, in terms I could understand. The selection was thus made easy. After I received my Iridium phone yesterday, I received an equally concise how-to guide from Charles Barber via email. It helped a great deal. Thanks to you guys for making my life easier in an unfamiliar domain.

Iridium Satellite Coverage Map

Iridium-Satellite-Network-Coverage

The Iridium satellite network provides truly global coverage of the entire earth from pole to pole.

Note that certain pre-paid airtime vouchers geo-restrict Iridium satellite phones so as to work only in certain regions.

Iridium Extreme Airtime Options

Should you prefer prepaid you will see we sell discounted prepaid airtime vouchers with the Iridium Extreme satellite phone in our shop. For more details on our Iridium Extreme prepaid services and call rates, see the Iridium prepaid vouchers further below.

We also offer easy online pay-monthly subscriptions for Iridium Extreme, however you need to sign up for them in a separate transaction from your phone purchase. After that we will automatically bill your card for your subscription on a monthly basis.

Iridium Extreme Applications

Recommended for:

  • Voice calls, SMS, and light data applications anywhere on land, sea, and air worldwide – Iridium Extreme can also be used inside vehicles on Safari with the magnetic antenna that comes in the box.
  • Sailors and Skippers – Iridium Extreme’s omnidirectional antenna means the masts on your boat won’t interfere with it, and it also works through fibreglass and canvas. Download GRB files with ease.
  • Safety and peace of mind – the built in SOS button and emergency support services provided by GEOS provides additional peace of mind that isolated remote travellers can depend on.
  • Location based services – advanced built-in GPS, SOS and tracking features makes Iridium Extreme the preferred choice for fire departments and rescue agencies worldwide.

Not recommended for:

  • People needing to transmit multimedia attachments such as photos larger than 100KB via email – Iridium Extreme’s data connection becomes too slow and expensive to be used for that.
