GoSatWatch and the ISS

Clint Bradford

February 25, 2021 – Unable to update orbital data
NASA has decommissioned the server the apps use to update the orbital information for the International Space Station. As a result the GoSatWatch app by default and GoISSWatch app no longer accurately track the ISS.

GoSatWatch: The app settings can be modified to use an alternate server. From Settings > Orbital Elements > Int’l Space Station > change the URL to https://www.n2yo.com/satellite/?s=25544 or https://www.heavens-above.com/orbit.aspx?satid=25544. The Space Station Missions group can still be used for accurate ISS station tracking as it uses a different server for orbital data.

: An update is in the works to use an alternate server. In the mean time please contact support for a temporary code to download the full GoSatWatch version.
