RockFleet - How to change Transmission rates  


TPConnect - IOS


  • Connect to your RockFLEET device on TP Connect via Bluetooth. If prompted, the pin is 1234.

  • Click on the configure tab at the bottom of the screen.

  • Once there click on the Maritime profile (a blue tick should appear to the right).

  • Click the Custom tab. If prompted, the password is 4321.


Transmission rates can be changed under the “Tracking  > Satellite Context” and “Tracking > Cellular Context” settings. 


The recommended Transmit Rate for the Satellite Context with Activity Sense Enabled on Power (recommended for the Maritime Profile) is 24hrs, the Burst Fix Rate should be 5 mins and the Burst Transmit Rate should be 10 mins. 


These settings mean that if the device is idle it will send a transmission ping once every 24 hours, but when the RockFLEET detects power it will send 2 pings (burst fix) every 10 mins (burst transmit) for Satellite. Over cellular, the default is to send 4 pings (burst fix) every 1 minute (burst transmit). 


If you need to change the transmit rates, you should leave the Transmit Rate at 24 hours. You can adjust the Burst Fix and Burst Transmit rates. Generally, the Burst Fix rate should be half of the Burst Transmit Rate. However, these can be set to the same value if you don’t require breadcrumbs.
