We agree, on the 2G version of YachtBot Mini it can be tricky to distinguish between a turned off device, and one that’s perfectly connected.


If you don’t have ready access to yacht-bot.com to check the connection status, you can briefly push the power button.


In normal operation:

  • If none of the two indicators flash, the device is off (or out of battery).
  • If both lights flash up briefly and turn off together, the device is on and connected.
  • If only the blue light flashes briefly, the device is off (on older hardware iterations of the 2G version).

When you're dealing with a fault or bad connection, you may see:

  • If both indicators light up, but the green data connection light keeps flashing, you likely have incorrect APN settings.
