The ports on TideBot are identical to those on the YachtBot and WindBot products.
The SD card must be inserted for correct operation. Use the SD card that arrived with your TideBot
The SIM card is optional
The USB port is used to access the SD card (there rarely is a need to remove the SD card and we advise against it) to change the config file or update the firmware
The DC charge port is used for charging the battery. Only use the supplied charger
- The recessed reset button is for powering the device down in the unlikely event that the magnetic switch is not responsive
