  Wideye Safari On Vehicle Roof   Wideye Safari Mag Mounts  
The Wideye Safari easily mounts on top of any vehicle roof with three rubberized mag-mounts. Permanent mounting hardware is also included.
The Mag-Mounting hardware includes noise dampening washers. These magnets are strong enough to withstand any wind, but not so strong that the antenna can't be removed from the roof.
  Antenna Feed   Wideye Safari Tranceiver  
The 3 meter antenna cable is small and flexible enough to feed between most vehicle door jambs. This avoids having to run the cable through a partially open window.
The Wideye Safari transceiver is connected to 12 volt vehicle power either directly, or with a 12 volt vehicle power plug. Also shown is the included primary handset with system display screen.
  Wideye Safari Primary Phone   Wideye Safari Wi-Fi antenna  
While any phone may work with the Wideye Safari, the primary handset color display shows many options, including system status, voicemail, sms text messaging, etc,.
The Wideye Safari includes a wireless access point for any in range device to connect (up to 100 meters or 328 feet). Note that the three green LED's on top of the transceiver show that the system is online.
  Wideye Safari Connection Ports   Wideye Safari Dirt Road  
There are quite a few connection ports on the back of the Safari transceiver, including a POE (Power Over Ethernet) connection, and GPS output for setting up a navigation system. Please refer to the Wideye Safari Users Manual for more information.
The Wideye Safari is a powerful in-motion BGAN terminal that performs anywhere on the planet with a wide range of features.

The Wideye Safari connects to any of the three geostationary Inmarsat I-4 satellites using the BGAN satellite network to connect to the Internet. This process is automatic and there is no action required for operation other than turning the unit on, no matter where in the world the device is located.

The system uses 60 watts of power and runs off vehicle 12 volt power, either directly wired, or through the included 12 volt adapter that plugs into the vehicle power port. Pack the compact Safari into a suitcase, or ship it to any location.

In addition to Internet and phone, the Safari supports, Faxing, and SMS messaging. Connection ports on the terminal include two phone ports (RJ11), one Fax port (RJ11), two Ethernet LAN ports (RJ45), one RS232 port for GPS output, and four GPIOs ports, for external control or indications.
