Yay! That’s more like it.

There are several posts and GitHub issues comparing the two but here’s a quick summary:

Bypass:
+ connects to the network faster
+ near 100% success in sending data if a network connection is made
– every transmission uses very slightly more data (in uncontrollable overhead – unsure why)
– Digi strongly discourages use of bypass
– rarely freezes logger to the point of a watch dog reset (cause unknown)

Transparent:
+ recommended by Digi
+ uses very slightly less data
– takes longer to connect
– occasional empty sessions where the internet connection is made but data isn’t successfully transferred (suspect a problem within the Digi firmware in packeting the data)
