  3. Click the “+” icon in the Devices area.

  5. When complete, click the “OK” button.

2. Configure the Iridium GO! With the Web Interface

 If required, you can also enter the email address into the “Quick GPS Recipients” list to have Quick GPS messages also forwarded and displayed on GAP.

Configuring SOS

If you choose not to use the GEOS service, then configuring the SOS recipients is similar to tracking recipients above. The Iridium GO! will initiate a call to the number specified. If required, we can provide a dedicated number that will automatically answer and record any voice communications.

Configure the Iridium GO! With the Smartphone App

You can also configure the Iridium GO! using the “Settings” feature of the Iridium GO! app.
