How is reefer loggings passed to cloud during sea passage?

If no on-board WiFi, loggings are exported from phone to PC via cable and emailed to the cloud. If phone supports USB OTG (what is ORG - read below) then loggings can be copied to PC via usb flash drive.

How to minimize data traffic charges?

Android system by itself may generate substantial data traffic which amount depends on phone supplier. The system traffic could be expected in a range of 10-20Mb per month in average. Our recommendations:

  • use phones with lightweight Andriod builds like Google Nexus breed carrying no extra branded software;
  • avoid installation of additional apps, de-install all apps that can be removed;
  • disable automatic apps update in Google Play;
  • whenever possible use cheap land-based WiFi;
  • in case of local GSM 3G connection purchase 'unlimited' data package;
  • avoid high GSM data roaming charges by using app data extraction from phone via USB OTG and communicating data files to cloud by other means such as email.

What is USB OTG?

USB On-The-Go, often abbreviated to USB OTG or just OTG, is a specification that allows mobile phones to act as a host, allowing other USB devices, such as USB flash sticks, to be attached to phone for files exchange between phone and USB device. Read more
