TE580 series 'field radio'
Cellular radio for lone workers

100% Guarantee I use this 'field radio' for communication with base during lone working, as well as for my voluntary work as a Responder with 4x4 Response Wales. It gives reliable comms plus real-time tracking using ZelloWorks. Martin Bailey

TE580 Plus cellular radio

Martin's Comments:

This is so useful I bought one myself. It's a waterproof phone, PTT cellular radio, camera, GPS, web browser and location tracker and you won't be afraid to take it out in the field with you. Comes with a handy belt clip.
The Telo TE580 & TE580 Plus are extremely useful two-way 'radios' using a cellular connection to queue, send and receive voice comms across any distance, so long as each handset can connect with the cellular network periodically.

A really useful feature is that when teamed up with ZelloWorks, a real-time location feature is available, which is especially useful for monitoring lone workers in remote locations. Ecologists and other field-based scientists can often find themselves alone and having a TE580 can enable them to communicate easily with fellow workers, as well as allowing an overview of individuals' locations on a live map, back at the office or on a remote computer (requires ZelloWorks).

Importantly, these have a much better antenna than mobile phones, so can connect when phones cannot. It can also be used for making phone calls.
