Working with NTRIP service¶
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 provide Reach with the Internet in a 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.
You can also find the tutorial in documentation or follow the video guide:
The video below covers the process of setting up Reach RS2 to receive RTK corrections over the Internet.
Connect Reach to the Internet¶
Reach requires the Internet connection to work with NTRIP.
There are 2 ways on how you can connect Reach RS2 to the Internet:
- Insert a SIM card and enable Mobile data on Reach
- 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
Configure Reach for RTK mode with NTRIP¶
Open ReachView and go to RTK settings. Set everything to the same options as on the screenshot below and apply changes.
Now go to Correction input tab, select NTRIP and fill in the information from your provider. Choose the nearest reference station to receive the corrections from.
Check the website of your NTRIP provider to find out which mount point suits you better.
If you are using VRS service, you might need to enable GGA messages.
Provide Reach with a clear sky view¶
Reach RS2 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.
