Making a Voice Call

To make an Iridium GO! voice call, you will need to have an iPhone/iPad or Android device and install the Iridium GO! App. The voice call is made with the Iridium GO! device, your phone is simply the handset. Your Iridium GO! unit has an Iridium phone number. You can send an SMS text message from the Iridium GO! App to your mobile phone to find your Iridium phone number.  

Email & Web Access

You will also need to use the Iridium Mail & Web Application on your iPhone/iPad or Android device to gain access to your emails/web on your Iridium GO!

PredictWind Weather Data

To get PredictWind weather data you will need to install the PredictWind Offshore App on a Windows or Mac laptop or iPad/iPhone. The PredictWind Mobile App does not interface with the Iridium GO! 

As a minimum you will need a PredictWind Standard Package to use the Iridium GO! interface in the Offshore App. You can log on to your existing PredictWind account (use Laptop/Desktop web browser - Not a tablet) and upgrade, or if a new customer make your purchase on the pricing page.
