The Global Address Book allows Administrators and Monitors to configure a few different configuration aspects of the GeoPro web app. The primary purpose of the Global Address Book is to create Contacts and Distribution Lists which are used to configure Global Event Notifications. Global Event Notifications are notifications which are sent to contacts or distribution lists when specific events have triggered. The Global Address Book is also used to update your Escalation Contacts. Your Escalation Contacts were configured at the time of registration and these contacts will be used by default for your Emergency, Missed Check-In and Man-Down event notifications. Last, the Global Address Book is used to sync specific contacts and distribution lists to all devices on your account without having to manually create them for each device.
For example, if your devices all require the same address book, use the Global Address Book to configure the Address Book on behalf of all devices. If your devices require a unique address, you would need to configure each of the device's address books accordingly.
Note: The Iridium Extreme does not support synchronization of Contacts. Only Distribution Lists can be synchronized to the Iridium Extreme. This is a limitation of the Iridium Extreme firmware.
