of used Iridium
9505A is pretty good even when bundled with a new battery
and as I have some passages planned through the med this year, it would be nice to have a sat phone
use and maybe a couple of weather
What is needed for the 9505A for grib downloads and email
. There looks to be a serial
port adapter for the 9505A and with a serial
to USB cable, the physical connection can be made.
is required (MacOS)?
Is the download "speed" the same as for the newer phones?
It looks like the Iridium
Access point works with the 9505A, so maybe that is a viable option.
My original plan was for more ambitious sailing which would justify spending more on the Iridium Go but I always thought it was not a good option if having to ditch. Maybe it would be good to get he 9505A now and when I can justify the Go, move the 9505A to the grab bag.
