Recently upgraded to a new iPhone, I decided I could use the old as a camera. So I wiped out everything, but the camera and a few other programs that I figured were not internet dependent including the built in maps program. After the flat tire thread, I started thinking about all sorts of needs that I have. While my cell an iPhone is fully capable of being a GPS, I got to thinking about other uses for my old iPhone which no longer receives a signal. A GPS with a map program…LoL…which I had just deleted. To make it worse I couldn’t restore the old program back since it was totally gone and couldn’t airdrop it either. Internet search lead me to realize I might be able to airdrop a third party program, “Organic Maps”. So I downloaded it to my new iPhone and then airdropped it to my old phone. It appears it can still download some information. I can download maps after the program is installed. LoL. I’ve also found there’s attachments to iPhones that will make it a SatPhone. That’s for future ideas.EDCB746B-B10A-4B05-9210-E78265688CAE.jpeg5BD731F4-5E4A-4BBC-AD5D-1C170AFD3707.jpegD9D784A2-0DB4-4377-AC7E-676090CE8769.jpeg
Last picture downloading a map that I had not loaded onto my new phone yet. This program works throughout the globe from what I’ve been able to read.

Apparently, the airdrop function is built in to work regardless of the phone having service or not. it's just one computer talking to another.

I’m going to look into this.
It’s a Thuraya SatSleeve+. Don’t know yet what kind of additional fees are involved, but it should cover whatever a regular service doesn’t.
