Mobile network compatibility
While the data rate is very low (about 2MB per hour), RowingCAS does require a reliable mobile network in for timely delivery of collision warnings. This page lists information about RowingCAS compatibility with various network operators.
2G, 3G and 4G networks work well, with somewhat increased latency in 2G networks.
We have seen timeouts with low-cost prepaid operators like e.g. Ready SIM. We're investigating.
