Great for international calls....this is why mariners and the military lead the way in communications technology! Remote locations!  This was the topic of my presentation at the Savannah conference but I sadly had to cancel. I'm considering it for the Maine conference...was out at the Shoals Lab off the coast of Maine a few years ago with limited com....we've come a long way in 'public use' communications.

Wow, valuable tools. But you have to use a skype-type app (Like Susan mentioned). Does the person at the other end have to have Skype to answer the phone?

I told ya, I feel so out of touch! (no pun intended).

I don't use my Garmin anymore unless I am traveling alone.
