Idiridum Go is a popular satelite hotspot device that works globally and allows yachts to download weather and e-mail. It's also capable of sending and receiving text messages as well as GPS tracking with a service like Quartermaster.
With Quartermaster and Iridium Go, a yacht can have real-time tracking of its location. This is simple to setup from Iridium Go by telling it to send an e-mail (typically every 10 minutes) to firstname.lastname@example.org. In order for Quartermaster to know which account or yacht the tracking data belongs to, you need to setup your iridum phone number in Quartermaster.
Turn on your Iridium Go and connect your device to its hotspot. Refer to the Iridium manuals on how to get your Iridium Go setup and connected to your phone or tablet.
You've now done all you need to do on the Iridium Go side.

If you have a backup Iridium Go, you can add that as well, but you should only have one on at any given time.
To check that tracking works, turn on your Iridium Go. Each 10 minutes, it will emit a sound confirming a tracking message has been sent with a verification on its screen. Wait a few more minutes and your yacht's location should show up on the tracking page in Quartermaster. Now you can also view it in full screen and even embed it on your site.
