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.
