The Iridium GO exec is an essential safety communication device with global coverage. Plan and act ahead, do not wait to install it the week before departure. You should complete setup at least a month before to allow sufficient time for the installation, and to become familiar with all the features.

At 40X faster than an Iridium GO! it delivers better speed and functionality anywhere in the world. To set up the GO! exec and install the Apps on your devices is a lengthy and necessary process involving many steps. Please follow all the instructions step-by-step carefully, to ensure you have the best experience using it.

Before you start

Set up at home or a location with high-speed Internet

It is simpler and quicker to set up at home or a place where you have access to high-speed internet and multiple devices for downloading Apps onto and viewing these set-up steps.

Fully charge your Iridium GO! exec device

Before using the device it must be charged up fully using the USB-C wall charger plugged directly into a wall power socket. Plug the USB-C cable into the second USB-C port on the device as shown below.

Setup Instructions

PredictWind has designed these articles to "fast-track" offshore sailors through the setup process as quickly and simply as possible. Important PredictWind account setup steps are integrated e.g. sim activation. The Iridium Quick Start Guide and Manual are generic and too detailed for most customers; they will not help you set up your GO exec with PredictWind.
