Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Iridium Go

Alex Ramseyer <alexramseyer@...>

IridiumGO has worked well on my boat. Of course there is the 2.4k bandwith limitation that comes with every Iridium connection..
Buy the external antenna and place it at a good spot where nothing disturbs the connection.
Cheers, Alex

Agreed Kent. Now that my external antenna is working my iridium go is very good too. 

Not fast but reliable. Like my Amel. 

Excuse the errors.

Hi Pat,

I have an Iridium phone with a gadget that uses the phone to create a Bluetooth WiFi hotspot.  I use it to get weather and do email.  It was less than satisfactory until I added a permanent antenna.  Now it’s awesome...good signal, fast downloads.  Maybe the bad reviews are from people like me before my new antenna???
