   The maximum rental period for all plans is 90 days.
   Incoming voice calls are free to subscriber, but the calling party will be charged at their provider's rates to call to your satellite phone.
   Voice calls over BGAN service are billed per minute and do not use available Megabytes, so there is no data usage cost when calling.
   All rental plans may purchase more Megabytes at listed overage rates.
   Unused BGAN service at the end of the rental period is not refundable.
   BGAN terminals operate in any country with the 4 Inmarsat satellites without any plan changes. No license or certification required.
   Returned rental equipment must be operational. Renter is responsible for repairs, or for replacing inoperable or lost equipment.
   Rental days begin on day of shipping and end upon Ground Control receiving the rented equipment.

Explorer 510 BGAN Handheld
Explorer 510 Overview
The EXPLORER 510 satellite terminal is a global WiFi hotspot with Internet speeds of up to 464 Kbps to any in-range wireless device such as laptops, tablets and smartphones. What makes the 510 different from other BGAN terminals is it includes smartphone integration. The "Explorer Control App" gives total control over the 510, such as displaying signal strength, overall usage (in Megabytes), and allowing you to send or receive texts (including using your iPhone iMessage or other texting program).
It also turns your smartphone into a satellite phone to place or receive phone calls from anyone in the world. The 510 is the most portable BGAN on the market and surprisingly one of the least expensive. It is ideal for all applications in remote or urban locations that require Internet and phone anywhere.

Global WiFi Hotspot
As a standard WiFi hotspot, use the 510 as you would any Internet connection with your laptop or smart device. It's able to connect with up to 11 devices simultaneously without any configuration changes. It has an amazing wireless range of 100 meters (300 feet), so the terminal can be outside, while someone can be connected wirelessly inside. And with global coverage, no matter where you travel, you will be able to get online.

Extremely Ruggedized
The legacy Explorer 300 and 500 BGAN terminals have a long proven history of working in the most extreme of conditions, features that passed on to the 510. This terminal can take a pounding and still operate, especially in high-humidity conditions (think Amazon Rainforest), or extreme cold -13°F (-25°C) or blistering hot +131°F (+55°C), rain, snow, ice, luggage poundings... it's almost bulletproof! It has an environmental Ingress rating of IP66 which means it's dust-tight, and can take water-jets from any direction... all this adds up to the fact it's one really rugged device. The 510 is a mobile office for any location at anytime.


Explorer 510 Ocean Use
Explorer 510 Maritime - Ocean Use
The Explorer 510 has a very wide view angle and can stay connected while moving on the ocean in most conditions (as long as the vessel is traveling in a fairly straight line). While not ideal as the MCD-4800, this BGAN terminal is an inexpensive way to stay online in the middle of any ocean - more

Pointing the Explorer 510 is extremely easy requiring NO connected equipment. Simply turn it on under an open sky and it will begin to audibly beep. Point the face of the terminal toward the sky and move it about. The beeping will become a constant high-pitched tone when the satellite has been found. Once the terminal has the highest pitch tone, press the power button again and the 510 becomes a WiFi Internet hotspot.
The 510 becomes a WiFi Hotspot that can be connected to by any wireless device. Laptops, tablets, smartphones can use the Hotspot as they would any hotspot since the BGAN network is an open connection to the Internet.
