locked Amel Owners Yacht Tracking #IMPORTANT


 

All,

Most of you have already received a message inviting you to join our new Subgroup named Amel Yacht Tracking. The fine people at PredictWind stepped up when we asked them if they could provide this for us.

If you Opt-in to this group and if you have a PredictWind subscription, you can also become part of Amel Yachts Worldwide Tracking. There is no additional costs for this.

The biggest benefit of this is that you will be able to see other Amel yachts who have also Opted-in to this service and other Amels near you or near where you are going. All of the information will be displayed on a global map.

I hope that this benefits you.

One of our greatest thrills when sailing around the world was meeting other Amel owners.  All of them are still very good friends.

Small annoying aside to this- we have been users of PredictWind for years. We called asking about the Amel discount. Since our billing cycle is May, they told us that’s when it hits. Kind of galling that new customers pay less than loyal existing customers in this situation. It should have been immediately pro-rated in my opinion; but business is business.

Thank you Bill for this,

I have another small annoying aside to this – we use PredictWind as well for years. Because I have an iridiumGo “air-plan” from another source than PredictWind, I cannot do automatic tracking with PredictWind Worldwide Tracking on my irirdiumGo.

PW setup the page for me and PredictWind told me;  I need to do the tracking manually because I have not their PW iridiumGo SIM.!!

  • I think this is not a technical issue, it is more a sales/marketing barrier, and I feel this not “gentlemen like”! Quite disappointing

Hello to the group,
if you don´t use Predictwind you may use Noforeignland . The AMEL group shows 78 members -
should be more.

Thomas, 

I spoke with Arianne at PW and when we upgraded our account the discount was applied for us.  

I believe that they are happy to apply the discount, you just need to speak with them.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Wolfgang for the information.

Predictwind is a very attractive solution but for those already equiped with a non Predictwind SIM activating the GPS tracking requires a professional subsription which is 119,99€ per month (though before discoun)t.

Shifting from another provider to Predicwing would mean being sent and activating a new SIM card.

Not sure if and when I will do this I have added my boat to the Noforeignland Amel group.

Regards
