The Iridium 9575 includes (at no additional cost) a small magnetic vehicle roof mounted antenna for parked or in-motion communication... This antenna can also be used to place the phone indoors if the antenna is outside. We do recommend this antenna as an option.

Here the Iridium Extreme is connected to the magnetic antenna on top of the vehicle. There is a hands free headset that is useful for when the car is in motion.
Iridium satellite phones have been popular with maritime use for years. The Extreme 9575 is dust and waterproof, so now the phone can be used on a working deck.

Iridium satellites are low-earth orbit with 100% global coverage, so no matter where you sail, you can stay connected.
