Re: Iridium Go

Using the XGate (XWeb) to connect to the Internet then allows you to get the YB Tracking directly via the button in Expedition.  Took a while to get this working but now makes getting the data so much easier.

Re: Iridium Go

With the iridium go I was able to use xgate to get gribs, yb tracking & tidetech currents directly from the expedition interface.  That should be all you need.

In practice things turned out a little differently.  I had issues with the go dropping the connection and the xgate link wasn't great at recovering from interrupted downloads.  YB data was small & two weeks of gribs were large.  So I ended up using the xgate interface for YB data & grib by email through Ocens as the Ocens downloader seemed much quicker to detect a problem & let you restart the download with a minimum of fuss.  

We later determined that a faulty adapter cable between the go & the external antenna cable may have been the cause of our instability.   But having an alternate process for getting gribs is still probably a good idea.
