How Credits Work

Each credit is one action of the Bivy Stick

Once you connect the Bivy Stick to the Bivy app on your smartphone via Bluetooth, the Bivy automatically chooses the mobile network as long as you have coverage with your phone. All actions the Bivy Stick performs over the mobile network do not cost credits. The credits work via satellite and are only used when you are in areas where no mobile network is available.
