Settings overview

This guide provides a description of the Reach RS2 settings. It includes the following sections:

In the upper part of the Receivers tab and Settings screen, you can also find the section with the name of your Reach RS2, its IP address, and a lamp-shaped button.

Tap the name of your Reach to open the menu with the following options:

  • Reach Panel

    Use this button to access Reach Panel

  • Disconnect

    Use this button to disconnect from your unit

  • Restart

    Use this button to restart your unit

  • Shut down

    Use this button to shut down your unit

Tap the lamp-shaped button next to the Reach's name to understand which unit you are connected if you use two receivers. All LEDs on your unit will blink simultaneously.

General settings#


Go to Settings and pick the General settings screen. On this screen, you can get information about the firmware of your receiver and manage system utilities.

Check the firmware version and update the receiver#

Find the current firmware version in the Reach firmware section, check for its update, and subscribe for Beta updates. If the update is available, you will see a notification.

Turn the unit on and off automatically#

Use Turn on/off using RS-232 connector to automatically turn the unit on and off depending on whether the power is supplied via the bottom connector. It is useful when you want to set up your Reach RS2 as a permanent base or integrate it with a tractor for precise agriculture.

Reset your receiver or share your data with the support team for debugging#

  • Use Reset settings to default to reset the receiver to its default settings.
note

This action deletes all user changes. Device name, logs, and wireless settings are preserved.

  • Use System report to download a simple or a full system report to facilitate issue solving.

  • Use Raw data debug to supplement the raw data log with additional data for debugging purposes. This feature provides more information on the RTK calculation that can be used for debugging purposes in particular cases.

note

This option turns off after rebooting the receiver.

Secure access to Reach#

Use Secure access to Reach to protect your Reach RS2 from being visible from outside the local network.

Change the receiver and hotspot name#

Use Change of receiver and hotspot name to change your receiver and its hotspot name. This will help in distinguishing between two receivers in the field.

note

The change is applied after reboot.

Networks and connections#

Go to Settings and select Mobile data, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth depending on the use case to set up networks and connections on your Reach RS2. Connections allow devices in a network to communicate with your unit and share information such as corrections and position data.

Find information on how to connect your Reach RS2 to the Internet in the Connecting Reach to the Internet guide.

Mobile data#

Enable Mobile data on your receiver to get corrections from NTRIP over the Internet if a SIM card is inserted.

note

Before enabling Mobile data, follow the steps from the Reach RS2: Inserting a SIM Card video guide.

Check the Working with NTRIP service guide to set up your Reach RS2 to receive NTRIP corrections using a built-in cellular modem.

Wi-Fi#

Update your Reach RS2 and connect it to NTRIP.

Check the Working with NTRIP service guide to set up your Reach RS2 to receive NTRIP corrections using a Wi-Fi connection.

Bluetooth#

Turn Bluetooth on to scan for other devices. This allows outputting the Reach RS2 position to external devices or software or inputting corrections.

Sound notifications and LED indication#

Switch on and off sound notifications on your receiver and adjust the volume of sound using the Sounds tab in Settings.

Use Night Mode to turn lights and sounds off until the next reboot.

GNSS and RTK Settings#

Before configuring your Reach as a rover or a base using the settings below, check these tutorials:

This section describes the recommended settings for both base and rover. Set up RTK, GNSS select, and Update rate based on your use case.

Check the Base and rover setup guide to learn more.

RTK#

Сonfigure communication settings for your Reach RS2. Set up the following settings:

Positioning mode

Select a positioning mode for your receiver: static or kinematic.

Elevation mask angle

Set the elevation mask angle to ignore any satellite signals that come from below the specified angle above the horizon.

note

The default setting is 15 degrees.

SNR mask

Mask the satellite measurements that have degraded quality. This helps to make an efficient selection of satellites.

GNSS select#

Set up an optimal set of satellite systems. Reach RS2 tracks GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS, and BeiDou satellite systems.

Update rate#

Set up the update rate for data logging. The data can be logged with 1 Hz, 5 Hz, and 10 Hz update rate.

note

The default update rate is 5 Hz.

Base configuration#

This section provides the settings used to configure your Reach RS2 as a base so it can transmit the corrections to the rover with the required accuracy. Consider your use case and choose the appropriate settings in the Correction output and Base mode sections.

Correction output#


Set up the way your base sends the corrections: Serial, TCP, NTRIP, Bluetooth, or LoRa. Reach RS2 supports the correction output in the RTCM3 format.

note

When setting up correction output, apply all the necessary settings. They may differ depending on the chosen output.

Base mode#


Select the coordinate input mode depending on the required accuracy.

  • Average single
  • Average float
  • Average fix
  • Manual

Choose a set of RTCM3 messages and set up their update rate. Reach RS2 also supports messages for legacy third-party rovers.

note

The settings you use to configure your Reach RS2 coordinate input mode are determined following the method you want to place the base. Check the Placing the base guide to learn more.

Rover configuration#

This section provides the settings used to configure your Reach RS2 as a rover so it can receive the corrections. Consider your use case and choose the appropriate settings in the Correction input and Position streaming sections.

Correction input#


Set up the way your rover receives the corrections: Serial, TCP, NTRIP, Bluetooth, or LoRa. Reach RS2 supports the correction input in the RTCM3 format.

note

Correction input on the rover must match the settings configured for the correction output on the base.

Check the Working with NTRIP guide to learn more.

Position streaming#


Set up the way your rover streams its position: LLH, XYZ, ENU, NMEA, ERB. When NMEA output is enabled, you can change Talker ID from GP to GN, select the required messages, and set the output rate.

Data in any of these formats can be sent via Serial, TCP, and Bluetooth.

note

When setting up position streaming via the specified outputs, apply all the necessary settings. They may differ depending on the chosen output.
