How to activate Reach M2 in STATIC mode

Hello,
On my Reach M2, in the “GNSS settings” configuration part, the “Positioning mode” option does not appear. How do I activate the M2 in STATIC mode without this option available?
My device is updated to firmware version 31.8.

Emlid updates removed it… apparently doesnt make any difference with multi-band models? Search back on this.

Do you know if it was removed from the RS2 and RS3 models?

It might be good to ask why you are looking for static mode in your M2?
Are you dissatisfied with some of your recent results?

Yes. The multi-band products. Apparently not the single band L1 products such as Reach/RS/RS+/M+

I’d like to use the M2 as a base for RTK drone mapping flights. I believe that in STATIC mode I get better results using the M2 as a base. Or not necessarily?

That was the general consensus before, but apparently Emlid thinks otherwise now… search past posts on this argument.

I personally think it may have something or nothing at all to do with the new RS3 tilt feature possibly since in tilt mode it is no longer static? Who knows. :thinking:

It doesn’t matter what mode it is in as a base station as long as you set the position of the base. It’s just sending correction data

Hi Michel,

Just wanted to confirm that as of version 31, the Static mode has been removed from the GNSS settings for RTK and multi-band units. We haven’t noticed any difference in our tests. If you’re faced with any issues, you can send your logs to us at support@emlid.com and we will take a look.

Reach M2 is designed for drone surveying and it’s not as easy to set it up on a pole or tripod as a base. However, it can be done. Here’s our guide. Which receiver do you use as a rover?

Hi Olesia,
My rover is an Autel Evo II Pro RTK drone, and I’m having trouble leaving the FIX solution.

Michel,

Did I get it right, that you’re able to receive corrections, just not a Fix solution? Please record the following logs for at least 10-15 minutes: raw data, LLH solution, RTCM3. You can send this information privately to support@emlid.com.
