  1. This is super wonderful, these qualities are just too good to be all in one device. Most times when you see so much qualities in devices like this they are either very heavy or very expensive and knowing this device is affordable would make anyone jump to get it. A device that goes well without WiFi is one worth having. I’ll just inform others about such wonderful device. Thanks for sharing

    • Hi Dane. Thank you for stopping by and sharing. The Go Tenna Mesh is a great product but please keep in mind that it is best when used at places like festivals, concerts and sporting events to keep people connected. It is not the best for hikers, backpackers and explorers who want to go farther off the beaten path and still have reliable coverage.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.


  2. Nice, this go tenna looks like a real go to for connecting hikers or explorers together. It’s awesome that one can get connected together and also easily connect it to a smart phone by simply downloading a simple application. It’s really cool and it’s the first time I’m seeing this. The battery life for 24 hours is very good too.

    • It is a great device for keeping people connected when there is no cell service but it isn’t best for hikers or explorers. You have a limited distance you can communicate with others and the emergency service features are not as reliable. Explorers would want to consider something more like the Garmin inReach Explorer or Mini or the SPOT X or SPOT Gen3. There are several other you can find in my article “Which Locator Beacon is Right for Me?” at:

      The Go Tenna Mesh is better used at large events such as festivals, concerts and sporting events.

      Let me know if you have any further questions. I would love to help you find the right satellite messenger.


  3. I like the fact that it can work in with any smartphone and the fact that it connects and send messages without smartphones too. That makes it totally independent depending on usage. I would like to know how best one can explore this devise and if it is usable at camping grounds too in places where the network connection isn’t great. Thanks

    • You can learn more about Go Tenna Mesh at my Emergency Radio Reviews:

      and you can go to Go Tenna Mesh’s website for more information.

      The Go Tenna Mesh would work great at campgrounds with no cell phone coverage because it works off the satellites and when synced with your phone, it allows you to have coverage that you wouldn’t normally have.

      The Go Tenna Mesh is great for things like campground, concerts, festivals and sporting events.

      I hope this helps. Please leave me additional comments if you think of more.


  4. Thanks for making my search easy and interesting. This go Tenna mesh is a complete package .Therefore all my hiking equipments are complete and I am good to go. The fact that this works with any smartphone and can be connected without stress is encouraging with its 4 mile range. This is  really great and I can’t wait to have it. It is also wired to enhance great communicating with groups. This means I can communicate with my friends as we hike. Thanks for this great recommendation and review.

    • You are so welcome. This would be a great device for keeping in contact with a group of friends while hiking. This is primarily what it was built to do. It has a lot of great options and services and is light (1.7 ounces) and compact, plus it has that cool factor. It’s so light that you probably wouldn’t even know its there.

      Thanks for your thoughts on the Go Tenna Mesh. Let me know if you have any other questions and what you think of it after hitting the trail with your friends.
