Re: Using the Yellow Brick Tracker to follow a race

ok, you got me!  Extra points if you have a good process off Iridium Go though when it's ready.

I used the YB auto response email and the same process outlined in the previous post on wx gribs; worked great, we had hourly YB updates sitting in the Airmail mailbox at 10 min past the hour

How did you get Expedition to "import" the file? There is no import in the YB tracking dialog that I saw.

It's right there on the Sail>Tracking window top right hand.

Re: Using the Yellow Brick Tracker to follow a race

I hate the race tracking...
newport-bermuda had it live, every 15 minutes!
that would be painful over the Go.., you really need a FBB setup or something similar
but who wants to spend the whole race downloading tracking updates?
for sure.., when you take a break from it, something important will happen...
there should be at least a one hour delay except maybe near the finish

We used the YB provided auto-email feature set for 1 hour.
At 10 after each hour the email was in the Airmail Inbox waiting...no problem.

FBB is nice but some owners aren't willing to spring for it.  In this one area (YB) I thought the IridiumGo worked fine once we figured out how to use it.
