The GO exec touchscreen includes a colour touchscreen which is 10cm wide. The device also includes a speaker and two microphones, allowing the device to be used for making or receiving calls from the unit.

The touchscreen includes 12 icons, which will change status depending on the unit's current configuration and coverage.

GO exec Status Bar Overview

The GO exec touchscreen includes a permanent status bar at the top, which includes the Satellite modem status and coverage strength, current device status and battery level indicator.

1. Satellite modem state (on/off)

Indicates whether the satellite modem is turned on or not. The modem will always be on except in cases where the Iridium GO! exec is attempting to operate outside its temperature range. Up to five coloured yellow bars will be displayed, indicating the current satellite signal strength.

For best performance, please check the unit is consistently displaying 4-5 bars of coverage strength. If the signal bars frequently dip below 3 bars, please buy or connect an external antenna or reposition the unit with a clear sky view to achieve better coverage.

When using the internal antenna, INT will display above the coverage bars in the touchscreen or App. When connected to the external antenna, EXT is displayed.

The status bar will indicate the device is Not Registered by displaying an X icon.
