We are off on a potential circumnavigation next June and are investigating Satcomms. We already have two Iridium handhelds, but are wondering if we should spend the loot on an updated system to get better weather more easily. We've looked at Iridium Certus and Inmarsat Fleet One, but I have come across the new "Starlink" in various RV posts in the US - it looks amazing and also very cheap to run. I'm pretty sure that the tech for marine use and coverage is not there yet, but I wonder if we should hold fire until it comes on stream. Does anyone have any experience or opinions about this? All input gratefully received!
All the best, Rod
