Am soon planning to sail offshore as crew on a boat that is using Iridium 9555 + RedPort Optimizer + XGate as one of its communication mechanisms.

I know from experience that the Iridium 9555 is pretty reliable. What about the Redport Optimizer and XGate? Are they pretty good? Known issues? etc?

Thanks

I just used the Iridium 9555 and the Redport 102 Optimizer in the 2014 Newport-Bermuda Race to download GRIB Charts from Ocens with excellent results.
