Just got our devices. Love it so far. It works. Will see how we like it when it gets put to the test. --> Tested this in our area. No connection greater than 1 mile. My husband predicted this due to the valley we're in and other buildings and things that can interfere. Will test in other environments such as Six Flags Great Escape (No Project Fi Cell Service). Beartooth devices will be good for battery banks.
I've really wanted this device and app to work well, and even deleted an older review hoping some of the issues would be resolved. However, neither work well. For the app, offline maps simply don't work. You can download areas, but the app won't load them while offline. The devices work well enough, but will disconnect if left idling too long, even if except from power monitoring. There's also still no support for mesh networking, which was a big part of the initial advertising. This still doesn't take into account the app's difficult to use UI. As a project coming out of someone's hobby, they did a great job. But for a commercially available product, they're still to far out from being ready.
Don't waste your money, it doesn't work
Voice and text off grid works great. The down loaded maps are really cool. One issue with the map is you have to down load the street style and whatever map you want. With out the street it will not work once you are off grid. You can use a very large scale on the street map, like a whole state. But over all the off grid functionality is awesome.
Wow this app is soooooo great... Could not get maps to work even after downloading them in an off mountain area with service. Using GPS currently only shows where your dot is compared to the other unit... Zero scale for distance, just a blackish screen with my Dot and the other units Beartooth symbol. Was happy voice works with the screen turned off. I'll probably have the CEO email me again (took down my last review) and ball me out for my honest review as I think he was upset I was upset this thing doesn't do what was promised and is over half a year late to market... TL;DR Careful writing reviews, the CEO looked me up on the internet and emailed details he had found out about my personal life. Oh and good or maps do not work. DO NOT RELY ON THIS DEVICE ON THE TRAIL. Mesh networking sounds great but how about maps?
Just got my units. Looked at instructions. Saw that encryption and mesh network isn't available yet. When will it be available
UI is a little clunky and nonintuitive but functionality is great.
Will first responders carrying Beartooth allow any reception, base, rudimentary compatibility at receiving cleartext promisc mode Gotenna shouts for help from hurricane Maria survivors? We have 400 node gotenna mesh built in Puerto Rico. Will you offer or merely fragment market? You deleted my comments and blocked me a year ago. As a taxpayer funded critical national infrastructure, will you commit to protecting the spirit of the First Amendment? Asked with love.
