The original Iridium GO! device supports a maximum of 12 meters of antenna cable, while the newer Iridium GO! exec version has technical limitations and can only handle up to 5 meters of antenna cable. However, by connecting the Iridium GO! exec to a datahub and ethernet cable, you can centrally mount the datahub in the boat, ensuring that the boat’s entire area receives wifi coverage from the datahub.
Alternatively, the Iridium GO! exec can be directly wired into the boat’s switchboard, allowing convenient control of the device’s power from the switchboard. This latter option is especially beneficial when the Iridium GO! exec is installed in a difficult-to-reach location.
