SD card

YachtBot, WindBot and TideBot require the SD card to be inserted to operate. The direction to insert is indicated on the case of the device. Always use the supplied SD card, as only high quality SD cards function fully with YachtBot products. If in doubt, ask us.


SIM card

SIM cards are optional, but of course required if a live data feed is needed. You need a large form-factor (Mini) SIM card with data plan. The direction to insert is indicated on the case of the device. When fitting the SIM card, make sure that the SIM card is inserted straight. 


In some countries, the APN user name and password needs to be set before data transmission works and a new SIM needs to make contact to the network on a conventional smart phone first.
