- First download the Bivy app from the Google Play or Apple app store onto your cell phone.
- Next, create an account on the Bivy app on your cell phone. The app will ask if you want your contacts connected. This can be helpful or you can add individual contacts later.
- Turn on Bluetooth on your cell phone.
- Turn on your Bivy stick and click Connect Bivystick. You may need to push the Bivy power button once to connect to your cell phone. Once connected, set your Bivystick outside where you have a clear view of the sky.
- Once you have a strong signal, you should receive a verification alert on your satellite device from Galileyo within 10 minutes. Reply OK.
Step 6: Subscribe to your preferred feeds
When you're logged into Galileyo.com, click on the Feeds tab at the top of the page, then click the circle next to each influencer or information feed you'd like to follow. For more information on each feed, click on the title in purple.
Step 7: Receive Alerts!
You'll start receiving alerts from the feeds you've subscribed to on your Bivy stick and on the website at Galileyo.com. Simply login and click on the Home tab to view your messages. You can change your feed subscriptions at any time.
If your Bivy device is turned off, the alerts will sit on iridium’s server for five (5) days. So, if the device is off for more than 5 days, those messages will be gone.
