120 sec, 180 sec, 240
sec

How many seconds
before the required
transmission the GPS
chip is ‘woken’ to achieve
a fix.

Fix Mode

2D, 3D

Whether the device
requires a 2D or 3D GPS
fix before it will transmit
a position (tends to give
more accurate positions,
certainly with respect to
altitude)

Fixes before accept

1 sec, 5 sec, 10 sec, 20
sec

How many ‘good’ GPS
fixes are
required before the
device will transmit a
position. (1 GPS fix per second)

Hot Status

Off, On

Whether the GPS chip is
kept powered at all times
(helps fix speed and
accuracy, reduces battery
life)

Mailbox Checking

Name

Options

Notes

Check Status

Off, On

Whether the device
schedules regular
‘mailbox’ checks with the
Iridium satellites. Not
often used, since
transmitting over satellite
will also do a mailbox
check by default each
time.

Check Frequency

5 min, 10 min, 15 min, 20
min, 30 min, 60 min, 90
min, 120 min, 180 min,
140 min, 360 min, 480
min, 720 min

How often the device will
conduct a mailbox check
with the satellites,
regardless of
transmission frequency
or satellite/cellular mode

External Accessory/Data

GPRS Strategy

Never, Always, Preferred

How the device will
switch between Cellular
and Satellite. Never
means it will never use
cellular. Preferred will use
cellular whenever
available, switching to
satellite if not available.
Always will never use
satellite.
