Text & GPS - No Matter What

1. Pair with iOS or Android

Your smartphone and goTenna wirelessly connect over Bluetooth-LE, as long as they're within ~30 feet of each other.

2. Use the easy goTenna app

Type out texts or share a location, just as you would in any familiar app. Chat 1:1, with a group, or even broadcast to all users within range.

3. Generate an off-grid signal

When you hit "send," goTenna shoots out long-range VHF radio waves (151-154 MHz) to your intended recipient(s). Your message is delivered in-app at the other end.

4. Create your own network(s)

goTenna is smart and automatically coordinates with other units within range. It does all the heavy-lifting so you can communicate on your own terms, no matter what.
