ACR Bivy Stick Two-Way Satellite Communicator


  The Bivy Platform

Comprised of the Bivy Stick and Bivy App, the Bivy Platform pairs feature rich hardware and software to create the perfect blend of safety and convenience. Ideal for adventures and off grid activities of all shapes and sizes, utilize the Bivy Platform to plan your experience, stay on track for the duration of that experience, and remain in contact with everyone that matters throughout, all while knowing that help is always available at the simple push of a button.

Bivy Stick’s Role

Use the Bivy Stick to turn your cell phone into a satellite communication device. With global satellite coverage via the Iridium satellite network, anywhere you have a view of the sky, you can communicate through the Bivy Stick. While conveniently compact, the Bivy Stick still offers a comprehensive feature set including two-way text messaging, SOS, location sharing, one-touch Checkin, and detailed weather reports sent straight to your cell phone via satellite. Additionally, offering a feature not provided with many other satellite communicators, the Bivy Stick provides users with a dedicated phone number and email. This important feature allows unsolicited incoming messages, meaning that those that are most important to you can reach you at any time, without the need for you to initiate contact.

The value of the Bivy Stick is further enhanced via key accessories such as the large variety of available mounting options. The many available mounts allow users to attach the Bivy Stick to any vehicle, backpack or structure and make it an ideal device for adventurers who find themselves going from one activity to another. The available portable and lightweight solar panel also provides for greater flexibility of use. Featuring intelligent charging technology, the solar panel allows users to efficiently harness solar power and conveniently extend the battery life of the Bivy Stick while off grid.    

Bivy App’s Role

The Bivy app has more than 50,000 adventures ready to be explored. No matter what you like to do in the outdoors, you can find a place to do it with the Bivy app. With twenty different adventure types all at your fingertips, the Bivy App is a versatile tool that can facilitate all your adventure needs. The Bivy App also allows you to keep track of all your adventures. Track your pace, mileage, altitude and more. Plus get access to detailed offline maps everywhere in the world.
