  1. Francis. Just perfect for me, as I am thinking about getting an Iridium Go for a transatlantic crossing later this year. In other crossings I have done I’ve had an Iridium phone and a Redbox. As you said an optimiser is essential with a MacBook but this time I’ll be using an iPad and iPhone and the Go seems ideal. Nice clear instructions in your book. Thanks. Martin

  2. Thanks Francis. I see the English version has been released. Just going to get my copy. Best wishes. Martin
