Hello, We have been using these for about 4 years now but mostly RTK. In some cases, we do need to use base/rover. I just can’t seem to figure out how to manually enter my own coordinates for the base. What I want to do is if I have known pre-calc’d points in state plane coordinates, how do I enter one of the known coordinates for me to set my over and still be one state plan verse just pulling average coordinates??? Any help will greatly appreciated!
You have to use latitude Longitude and ellipsoidal height. So if you have state plane you will have to convert them
Ok, I don’t have a problem with converting to lat/long if that’s what needs to be done. We are using reachview3 as the controller. How do I enter them. That’s what I can’t figure out. I’m sure it’s supper easy to do and I’ve over complicated it but can’t figure it out.
On the base tab, where the average in coordinates appear, there is a drop menu for fix type, pick manual, enter the coordinates then save them.
I fully agree with Thomas and @PotatoFarmer. You need to convert state plane coordinates to latitude/longitude/ellipsoidal height. After that, enter them in a base mode tab as shown on the screenshots:
Also, you need to convert coordinates only to set up a base. On the rover you can use state plane coordinates.
Thank you everyone. Not sure how I new saw the manual entry spot. I’ll try this on my next base rover job
Hi Greg, just a tip. You could also use the Base Shift feature for this, as the work-around does not need you to convert the coordinates into geographic
