Tracking – use and configuration

Iridium GO! can send location tracking messages in two ways:

1. Quick GPS – a one-time sending of location information to a predefined group of recipients.  

2. Interval Tracking – messages sent automatically according to the scheduled interval frequency.

Both tracking methods will send a message to your recipient(s) with a link to that will 

display your location on a map viewed on the recipient’s web browser.  

To configure and use tracking:


Quick GPS – to program a Quick GPS list, go to the Iridium GO! application Settings, select Track, 

and then add to the Quick GPS recipients list.   To send a Quick GPS, press Track on the Iridium 

GO! application home screen, wait for location information to appear (initial update can take up 

to two minutes), and then press Quick GPS to send. Once configured, Quick GPS can also be sent 

from the Iridium GO! device by selecting Tracking and “Send quick GPS” from the device menu.


Interval Tracking – to send your location on a regular update schedule, go to the Iridium GO! 

application Settings, select Track, set the Tracking Frequency, and add the Tracking Recipient. 

Once these settings are saved, regular tracking messages will be sent automatically even if the 

Iridium GO! application or smartphone is turned off.

Advanced settings

User accounts and user access 

Users accounts with Administrator privileges have the ability to modify Firewall and Wi-Fi settings 

as well as manage User access. Administrator users (by default “guest” user is an administrator) may 

modify these settings either through the Iridium GO! application by pressing the Advanced icon or 

through the Iridium GO! Advanced Features portal.  

Firewall settings

Iridium GO! has a built-in Firewall system which will allow you to filter outbound traffic for use with 

non-optimized applications. You may set this to allow or block all traffic as well as add filtering 


Wi-Fi settings

By default the Iridium GO! device Wi-Fi connection is set to “open” but can be modified to WPA2 by a 

user with administrator privileges through the Advanced icon.

User management

User management provides the administrator with the ability to create additional user accounts. 

These new accounts can then be modified by the administrator to limit access to different features 

within the Iridium GO! application: make calls, send or receive messages, send Quick GPS or post to 

Twitter.  By default the “guest” user account is set as an administrator. The “guest” login can be used 

concurrently by 5 different users resulting in 5 administrators logged in at the same time. If you wish 

to limit access to the administrative settings (Firewall, Wi-Fi, SOS and user management), you may 

modify the “guest” account to remove the “administrator” rights. 

NOTE:  Prior to modifying the “guest” account, please ensure that you have created a new account with administrator privileges.
