LED status

LED functionality is available with ReachView version 2.7.0 and newer

Reach boot LED sequence

Reach LED is an RGB LED that cycles through a simple pattern:

Network state -> App state

During boot Reach will go through 3 steps:

  • Network scan
  • Time sync
  • ReachView launch

Network scan

During boot, Reach enters a network scan state in which it will try to connect to any known Wi-Fi networks it can find. This might result in connecting to a previously added network or creating its own hotspot.

Client Wi-Fi mode
Hotspot Wi-Fi mode

Time sync

After network configuration is done, magenta blinks will be added to the LED. They are shown during time sync.

ReachView launch and operation

Note

The app will not launch until the time sync is complete. Internet connection allows this to happen automatically, but in hotspot mode Reach requires a connected antenna with some satellite visibility.

After the time sync is done, the magenta blinks stop and ReachView is launched. Green solid light will take its place, showing app start. You can see several additional states:

App state Demo
Normal app operation
Point collection
App internal error

The table below demonstrates possible flash patterns describing various states of the receiver.
