YB Connect:

You can create a YB Connect Account to enable the sending and receiving of SMS messages via the YB3i. NOTE: This is a separate service to PredictWind and has additional charges.

We highly recommend this feature, as the YB3i then becomes a backup satellite device for SMS should your primary satellite system have problems.

YB Connect Set up:

  1. Download the YB Connect app from the Apple or Google Play Stores

  2. Turn Bluetooth ON in your mobile device and select the YB3i tracker serial number (while it is turned on) from the list of selectable units (should just be their unit)

  3. When prompted they MUST select 'No, this is someone else's tracker' when prompted. This step is VERY important as this will only open up the message features and not the ability to configure/control the unit etc. If you select 'Yes this is my tracker', then you will be asked to enter a pin that is not available for the YB3i.

  4. Once you have chosen 'No this is someone else's tracker', click 'Enable Messaging'

  5. This is the login page. Select 'create Connect Account' and follow the prompts.

  6. Once created, go to 'My Account' then 'Manage Credits' to add credits

  7. Once added, you can begin texting/emailing plain text messages (No fonts, pictures or attachments can be sent!).
