Ratings and Reviews
Good but needs improvement
It’s incredible what can be done with technology. Gotenna is an example of that. These would be much more useful if they had greater range about 4 times what it does now. I pull mine out when I hunt large dense refuges and such. But if someone in the group is more than 3/4 mile away it doesn’t reach them. I would like to see some downloadable satellite view maps and ability to save pins and such. Land in my area is pretty flat, so a topological map wouldn’t help much. Having satellite maps and pin saving, would save me from having to buy a $300 GPS and be much more convenient.
Thanks for listening to your customers! Most everything that was broken is now fixed.
Great off grid comms that actually works
Have both gen1 and mesh. Both worked great from beginning and continue to improve features. Support is responsive and take feedback serious.
