The Thuraya XT is a compact rugged satellite phone covering most of Europe, northern and central Africa, the Middle East, central and southeastern Asia, the Indian subcontinent, Japan, and Australia. The Thuraya XT satellite phone's outer shell is made out of a tough polycarbonate that is splash resistant, dust resistant and shock resistant (IP54/IK03 standard). A low-glare high-contrast color display makes it readable even in direct sunlight conditions.
The Thuraya XT has a GPS-navigation feature which allows you to create and manage waypoints that can be used to navigate from a fixed location to other waypoints, showing the distance and direction to each. You can use location tracking by automatically saving your GPS coordinates in fixed intervals, allowing you to create a track of your route. The GPS-navigation can only be initiated by the handset user, and unwanted tracking cannot be remotely executed by external third-parties. The handset user can trigger the Location Based Service by transmitting his or her own coordinates to other telephones or computers. This functionality can be used in case of emergency or if you wish to be monitored by your own organization or by other individuals.
