Sync Clock

A smartphone or other mobile device with an internet browser can be used to update an X2’s internal clock via the Embedded Web interface. This is particularly useful for land-based Iridium X2 systems, as satellite telemetry precludes the possibility of syncing time accurately.

  1. Establish a connection to the X2’s direct Wi-Fi network.
  2. Access the main menu by clicking the menu icon in the top right.

  1. Verify the X2 time and mobile device time match. Due to the latency of associated with updating the display over direct Wi-Fi, it is normal for there to be a couple seconds of difference.
