This guide shows how to record logs for Stop & Go with ReachView 3 and download them using ReachView 3.

Overview

Stop & Go with ReachView 3 is a technique that involves the use of a base placed at a known point and a rover attending all unknown points and occupying each one for a short time. This workflow allows you to get separate points from the track of measurements using the logs from the base and the rover and a CSV from the ReachView 3 app.
