iridium 9555

Hello all,

I have an Iridium 9555 which the previous owner of my boat was using for weather routing data. Does anyone have experience with it and can share suggestions? I understand the GO is more commonly used now, but I don't have experience with either and would love to hear about capability of the 9555. Any help would be much appreciated, I'm having a hard time finding information about it. Thank you in advance!

Re: iridium 9555

Hi Capt,

this link talks about a similar sat phone, may help.

On my new to me yacht it came with a Iridium 9505a and I have decided to get a Iridium go, mainly due to the cost of extra items I need to access weather, as follows (prices in AUD$):

- Redport Optimizer $300
- new battery $170
- aerial $400
- account to test $250
- total $1,120
- Iridium Go $1200

Hope this helps

Re: iridium 9555

I have an earlier model which I used only for voice, but successfully from Costa Rico and Madagascar. I stopped using it because the monthly rate was too high for my use, so now I just carry a SpotX.

But what's really your question? The 9555 is current, and the manual is readily available:
Never let anything mechanical know that you are in a hurry.
