About goTenna

What is goTenna?

Lightweight, weatherproof and easy to use, goTenna turns your iPhone® or Android into an off-grid communicator, letting you text and share GPS locations on detailed offline maps for free!

Once paired with your cell phone, goTenna uses VHF radio waves to send text messages and GPS location information to other goTennas in the area.

Features

    Send private messages 1 to 1; in a group, or broadcast to any goTenna nearby. All messages are compatible and interoperable with both iOS and Android devices.
