    If I recall correctly my tracker was glitchy too. Must be that he has the winning tracker :-)

    Yes, GPS in his Iridium GO went into the weeds for one sample. Recovered on the next sample.

    --- who's sailing X "bottom left" - same guy who is sailing X "top right". These two marks are using to define the Race playing field.
    Both Aloha and Perplexity are sending the incorrect GPS positions from time to time. Both are using Iridium GO as their trackers - could be where the unit is placed on the boat.
    Sea Wisdom and Shark on Bluegrass are also use Iridium GO tracker and are working as expected. All other boats are using Garmin inReach trackers.

    The built in antenna on the Iridium Go will transmit through a fiberglass hull though I suspect could get sketchy during satellite transitions and various hull angles.
    It won't transmit through carbon fiber.
    Using the optional external antenna provides the best results.


    In 2018 I used the Go for coms and backup tracker and the InReach for tracking and backup coms.
    Texting was instantaneous, email pretty fast, and I only had one poor voice call that a redial took care of.
    All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it is vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.
