Iridium GO?

Has anyone tried out the new Iridium GO? Looks like a pretty good alternative to satphone.

Re: Iridium GO?

Keep in mind, that while the device costs $895, the real cost is in the data/voice use.

I found the Delorme InReach affordable in the long term and allowed some communication, but not too much.
