Re: Iridium Pilot, optimizer, xgate integration to Expedition

This is a useful dialogue about satphone data management, so keen to hear other solutions.  I had no end of trouble getting XGate to work, and eventually gave up.  So I now use a combination of:
a) Windows 10 set to Metered Connection, plus ensuring Windows Update is run the night before a race, plus a couple of laptop restarts;
b) Glasswire;
c) Opera browser, which seems to be the skinniest and least likely to add stuff as does Chrome or Edge.
Other solutions?

Someone solved some Xgate problems this week by increasing the time-outs in it.

Just want to report back that it's working! A very sweet and fast connection. Optimizer and Xgate are GMN products, so you must use the GMN option instead of Nooa or Saildocs.

Same issues as you, but am not able to dload grib with GMN option either, same error message.  Are there other setting changes necessary?
thanks

Re: Iridium Pilot, optimizer, xgate integration to Expedition

When you use expedition with the optimizer and iridium handset what happens if the connection gets interrupted half way through, using predictwind and the optimizer it picks up the partial download and carries on, does expedition do the same or does it start again from scratch??

Thanks

Re: Iridium Pilot, optimizer, xgate integration to Expedition

I am on a boat planning on using Iridium go and predict wind offshore application and grib source.  We will 
be using my computer with expedition as a back up.  How do I get the grib files from Iridium into my computer?  Also I am practicing over the winter....obviously I can download my own grib files...HOWEVER I would like to be able to load grib files provided by the boat owner into my computer during the winter.  Is this possible ? Can it be done with a thumb drive?  Thanks

Mark,
You're smart to be trying this stuff when you have lots of time and w/o an upcoming start putting the pressure on.

I don't know about using Iridium Go but once you have a grib file on the thumb drive you can easily access that in Exp.

Under the Weather tab go to Settings and click on Add File and select your grib file in normal explorer fashion, then click Open then OK and it should be loaded.
