ReachView updates

App version

Every time you power up Reach RS2 in a Wi-Fi network, it checks for the new ReachView update and notifies you accordingly.

The update check is only done one time during the boot process. If you want to force new version check, please proceed to ReachView Updater. It is available on port 5000, for example, http://reach.local:5000. The Updater automatically scans Emlid update servers when you open it. Learn more about ReachView updater.

System report

The tool is used to facilitate issues reports. There are two kinds of system reports:

  • Simple system report (in plain text format)

The former is for the forum and makes it easy to share settings, network state, and app version. The latter is for harder cases and contains system logs and technical details of your device.

General settings

Reach and hotspot name

Reach RS2 name can be changed in order to distinguish between multiple devices. A very common pattern is to name devices according to their base or rover function. A device name is a base for hotspot name and local network name. The default name is reach, changing it will also affect local name http://reach.local and hotspot name reach:XX:XX.

Raw data debug

The raw data log can be supplemented by additional data for debugging purposes. This option turns off after rebooting the device.

Public access

ReachView offers Public access feature. This feature is available only if you use a SIM card with a static IP assigned by your cellular network operator. It allows access from outside local network.

It is recommended to use Public access only when it is necessary. This setting disables the firewall and makes ReachView available to anyone.

Logging settings

Specify how ReachView will handle full memory behavior here, it can either stop logging or override old logs in favour of new ones. In most cases “rolling logs” is recommended.

Log split period

A new log file will be created every N hours while preserving the previous log as well. This setting allows you to control the size of the files that you work with.
