If you are using the GEOS global emergency response services as your SOS settings you will need to re-enter the GEOS activation code.

If you choose not to use GEOS for your SOS settings, please ensure that the appropriate call and message recipients for SOS are re-entered.

If you are using the PredictWind tracking feature you will need to turn on GPS Tracking again following the instructions here - See Step 2.

Resetting the Iridium GO will not affect the operation of the Offshore App, Iridium GO App or Iridium Mail & Web App.

We have seen the odd case where the Message (Service Center) number is not correctly set up after a system reset. Please check this by connecting your iOS/Android device to the Iridium GO Wi-Fi, Open the Iridium GO App, go to "Settings", then menu "Message". Please check the number is set to+881662900005
