The new Land Rover Explore mobile phone is built to work in places other phones can’t reach. The new Explore mobile phone, inspired by Land Rover’s rugged ‘go anywhere’ 4x4s for those with an adventurous spirit, is claimed to be capable of operating and navigating in extreme conditions for two full days with the screen on constantly.

Battery life can be doubled by using an Adventure Pack that also boosts the reliability and accuracy of the GPS signal and improves the mapping capabilities. The ultra-durable phone is powered by a super powerful 4000m Ah battery with a factory fitted screen protector and protective case than can survive underwater to 1.8 metres – including salt water.

It can cope with extreme temperatures from freezing cold to blistering heat, thermal shock, intense humidity and vibration exposure. The full HD, five inch screen can be controlled even when wet and with gloved hands and has instant access to weather information and mapping data, plus its own compass and SOS light making it an ideal phone for hiking, biking, skiing or off-road adventures.
