The A*LIVE can load its own updates! You will be informed by e-mail when a new update is available.

GSM/4G network coverage

A chipSIM is built into the A*LIVE, which can log into almost all GSM (2G/4G) networks worldwide. It automatically connects to the best available network at the respective location. In the 4G range, the new “NB-IoT” technology according to NB1 / M1 standard is used, which is currently being released by more and more countries.

Iridium switching**

After 10 minutes without GSM or 4G connection, the A*LIVE will try to establish a connection via Iridium (LED #4 changes from flashing to steady light). In Iridium mode, the A*LIVE searches for a GSM/4G connection every 12-15 minutes and connects to it again if necessary.

Depending on the tariff type (e.g. ALIVE BASIC), the satellite tariff does not work if you switch off the device in GSM mode and then switch it on again in an area without GSM coverage (Iridium coverage)!

Please refer to the information on your tariff!
