This guide explains how to configure Reach to get correction messages from NTRIP service.
NTRIP correction input setup can be done at home before the survey. In that case, you just need to connect Reach to the Internet in the field.
If you just received your Reach, you need to update it to make sure you have all the latest features. The instruction is in a carry case Reach comes with.

Reach requires the Internet connection to work with NTRIP. You don’t need any special devices or software for that, only a smartphone with a hotspot feature.
Turn on mobile data on your smartphone and share it over Wi-Fi hotspot. Reach will connect to your network and get access to the Internet.
Check the tutorial for more information about how to connect Reach to other networks.
Configure your Reach for RTK mode with NTRIP using the steps below:
Open ReachView 3 and go to GNSS settings
Set everything to the same options as on the screenshot below and tap Apply
In the GNSS select section pick either Glonass or BeiDou depending on your location. While Glonass covers most of the world, BeiDou might be more efficient in the Asia-Pacific region. In this example we use Glonass.

Check the website of your NTRIP provider to find out which mount point suits you better.
Android Keyboard Tech Tip
On some Android devices, default keyboards do not provide a minus sign. To get access to it, we recommend downloading Gboard, a virtual keyboard app, from the Google Play Store.
If you are using VRS service, you might need to enable GGA messages.
- Tap Apply
You can choose this profile next time setting up NTRIP corrections on your Reach. Manage your NTRIP profiles in the Profile tab.
Reach RS/RS+ needs to have a clear view of the sky approximately 30 degrees above the horizon. There should be no obstacles that could block the view like buildings, trees, cars, humans, laptops etc.
