I believe that in going through the tutorial “Reach RS/RS+ RTK over LoRa radio video”, I did enable the hotspot. Once I got outside though to test, app could not connect to Reach RS+'s via hotspot, or local office Wifi. Status lights were as I indicated though.
So, did it not take the hotspot activation?
I would like to test the unit in our parking lot, so even if I am able to activate the hotspot, units will also be in proximity to local office WiFi…
Seems to be a common connectivity problem with some of these new Plus versions… I am sure you have searched here and see similar posts of others with problems also. I think they are working on figuring out what is wrong and when they do, sure they will post it. Yes, gotta be quite frustrating. The people all here and at Emlid are great… I am sure something will come about to help soon.
Yes, I understand about the status lights. Problem is, even when connected to known WiFi, ReachView app could not locate the Reach devices.
As an aside, if you are near a known network but in hotspot mode, will the units default back to connecting to the known network somehow? If I am going to test around office exterior, should I “forget” the network?
I have had general connectivity problems with the ReachView App at times, no real trend as to what causes the unit not to show up. Sometimes a force stop of the app helps. I’ve even reverted to using the internet browser on my phone and typing in the IP. Works just as well.
