Iridium 9575 Extreme Review Review by Jonathan L. Stewart

I've been using Iridium phones for about 10 years now, and they continue to evolve, with the Extreme the latest (as of 1/2012) version. Compared to the previous version, the 9555, the Extreme does seem to acquire signal faster. Call quality is about the same. The Extreme has a better hand feel, with a rubberized surface with little ribs for better grip. It's also marginally lighter and smaller than the 9555, and the antenna feels much sturdier. There are some differences to functionality, primarily GPS. You can attach your location to a message, and the lat/lon is sent, along with a Google Maps link embedded in an Iridium website. Another benefit of GPS is that now the Extreme has a built-in SOS button, which you can program to connect to a rescue service of your choice. GEOS is the default, the same as is used by SPOT, with optional coverages available for purchase. I have a SPOT as well, and will continue to use it since it's cheap enough, but I believe the Iridium will be better, because unlike SPOT's Globalstar, Iridium's coverage is truly global.

SPOT doesn't work in parts of Asia and Africa, or the oceans or poles. Also, the Iridium constellation is much more robust and reliable, and the Extreme can get a message out in conditions where SPOT can't, or at least can't quickly. Plus, the Iridium gives a verification of message sent, unlike SPOT. A side note for SPOT users, standard rescue coverage purchased with SPOT is only good for the Americas and Western Europe, plus Australia. If you get into trouble anywhere else on the planet, you'll need the optional worldwide coverage available through GEOS. As mentioned, the same coverage is available with the Extreme. But that's comparing apples to oranges, since in addition to being a messenger, the Extreme is a fully-enabled voice and data device.

Downsides to the Extreme: It's still clunky and feels like a tough-built 1995 cell phone. To charge it, you don't just plug in a little tip, as you have with every other sat and cell phone ever built. No, you have to install a little appendage to the bottom of the phone, then plug the adapter into that. It's just one more part to lose and break and I really don't understand why they designed it like this. It can't be for waterproofing, since there are other holes on the phone. That's a mistake, in my opinion.

Overall, it's an incremental improvement over the 9555, and for the GPS, ruggedness (plus water-resistance), and slight weight and size gains, I think it's worth the upgrade. (Posted on 2012-09-29)

The Iridium 9575 Extreme Satellite Phone Hands-on Review: The Ultimate Phone Anywhere on the Planet

Iridium 9575 Extreme: First Impression and Specs

The 9575 is not what kids would imagine a phone to look like today. Its appearance and weight is closer to the mid-90s versions of Nokia or Motorola phones. This particular version is dust- and spill-proof (as it is meant to be used outside with direct view to satellites) and covered in a sturdy rubber padding that prevents damage to the phone when it is dropped.

It has a monochrome display (no, it (Posted on 2012-09-29)
