To test IERCC SOS has been correctly activated on your Iridium GO! exec, please check you have completed the following steps:

  • After registration, please ensure you have entered the activation code to activate the SOS. This can be done by accessing the SOS Settings on the Iridium GO! exec app, select Use IERCC, and enter the 5-digit authorization code provided by IERCC, and then tap Submit.

  • To check the SOS activation, the unit must have a connection to the Iridium satellites and 4/5 signal bars of strength. Power off the unit for 30 seconds, then turn it on again. On start-up, if on the unit there is no prompt "To set up the SOS" then the SOS setup has been successful.

NOTE: We strongly suggest you test the IERCC SOS feature as per the instructions below:
