SEATTLE, WA – OCENS SpotCast delivers weather forecasts directly to the face of your satellite phone anywhere in the world. SpotCast service is now compatible with the IsatPhone Pro 2 released by Inmarsat this spring.
The IsatPhone Pro 2 is a rugged and reliable upgrade to the IsatPhone Pro. Most notably, the ‘2’ registers to the Inmarsat network in just a few seconds and even allows receipt of SMS text messages and call alerts with a stowed antenna., splash and shock resistance is improved to IP64 and IK04. The phone’s new screen includes a high-visibility, scratch-resistant transflective display that is noticeably more readable in even full sun conditions (SpotCast reports delivered to the new phone are exceptionally crisp and easy to read). Industry battery life becomes even better with 8 hours talk and 160 hours of standby capacity. In short, the ‘2’ looks and feels like a satellite phone built to handle the toughest of operating conditions.
SpotCast reports are returned to the ‘2’ within just a few minutes of the request leaving the phone. Each SpotCast weather forecast contains four (4) individual forecasts spread across a 24 hour period for your location. Each forecast contains a timestamp in your local time zone and up to five weather factors including temperature, precipitation, surface pressure, wind speed and wind direction. 48 hour and 72 hour forecasts are also available.
