Introducing the GSP-1700, the smallest, lightest satellite handset from Globalstar. The Globalstar GSP-1700's convenient size and increased functionality makes it a must have communication tool wherever your business or leisure pursuits take you.

The Globalstar GSP-1700 phone is designed to take you beyond cellular and landline communication, making you more productive and keeping you in contact with work, friends and family from afar. New ergonomic redesign, advanced feature set and reduced size make the GSP-1700 an indispensable tool for business and a must have on your back country trips.

More than 80% of the world's land surface and essentially all ocean regions remain outside the range of cellular telephone networks, yet until now the only reliable alternative for these remote areas - satellite telephony - has been financially prohibitive for many applications.
