The RockSTAR Two-Way Messenger is a 100% global messaging and tracking device. It allows you to send and receive short messages from anywhere on the planet with a clear view of the sky.
RockSTAR Portable Messaging & Tracking Device
The RockSTAR works far beyond the reach of WiFi and GSM networks. The RockSTAR also allows short messages (like SMS, social media updates and short emails) to be sent using a paired Bluetooth device (such as a smartphone) and the Messenger app. This allows for full two-way communication wherever you are, even when out of mobile network range.

RockSTAR Messaging
The RockCONNECT App for iOS or Android devices lets your Smartphone make and receive messages from anywhere including short emails. A powerful tool that works as long as you have a view of the sky. The RockCONNECT App uses Bluetooth to connect with your smartphone.

RockSTAR Tracking
The tracker will wake up on a regular basis, obtain a position using the GPS satellite network, and then transmit that position back to Rock Seven HQ using the Iridium satellite network in seconds. The message is relayed to us from Iridium, and then we visualize the positions on an easy-to-use web-based viewer.
