anyone out there who works for iridium lease
PM me and tell me differently
According to the guys at UUplus [the email service
for the bandwidth impaired that we use with our Iridium Extreme]:
There is a bug in the Iridium USB driver for the [Iridium sat phone models] 9555/9575 that messes up the [Iridium] RUDICS connect on Win10. No problems with Win8 and Win7 [and Mac OS X] (we no longer support XP). Iridium knows about the bug but hasn't updated the driver since 2012.
It does seem odd that Iridium obviously doesn't care... or perhaps this is their way of pushing their satellite
data consumers toward their IridiumGO! device?
Iridium RUDICS is the key on our sat phones for making data transfer as efficient as possible. It is a shame it cannot be used with the GO! since that is an IP device, and is therefore hobbled by the inefficient [on low bandwidth] internet
protocols by comparison.
If anyone is interested, there are more details on our Satellite Communications
page we maintain primarily for our own sanity trying to keep up with our needs...
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful...
