Updating the Iridium GO! exec device Firmware (aka software)
The Iridium GO! exec can complete a software update via the Iridium GO! exec App. You do not need a USB cable or a computer. See: Iridium GO! exec - Download and Install the Required Companion Apps
The Iridium GO! exec App will notify the user each time the App connects to an Iridium GO! exec if there is a firmware update available. This menu provides a means of updating the firmware if the previous requests have been denied.
1. Make sure the Iridium GO! exec app auto-updates itself on your mobile device or ensure it's manually updated via regular internet connection on the Apple iOS Store or Android Google Play store. New firmware will come with new versions of the app.
2. It is highly recommended to update the firmware on the exec as they become available. Firmware updates provide bug fixes, stability and service improvements, and other enhancements.
NOTE: The Iridium GO! exec will reboot when the update completes, dropping all Wi-Fi connections, voice calls and data sessions in the process.
