Good afternoon, I have had a connection problem with my GNSS that I am not able to understand. Since I bought the RS2, it has been 3 years now, I have been working without problems, always in NTRIP with connection to a base station or Coors. I control the equipment with an OPPO Reno 4Z mobile with internet connection through the mobile access point of the device (shared data).
A few days ago I went to do a stakeout and performed the steps that I have always connected with so far, without problems, that is:
1º I activate the shared data of the mobile.
2º I turn on the RS2 and wait for it to connect to the mobile Wi-Fi, something it does automatically
3º I open the reach view 3 and go to work.
But this time it didn’t work, I tried two or three times by rebooting the GNSS and starting again, but there was no automatic connection of the Reach to the mobile hotspot. Faced with this situation, I decide to do it “manually”, that is:
1º I turn on the RS2
2º I connect with my mobile to the RS2 Wi-Fi network.
3º Activate the shared data of the mobile.
4º I open Reach View3 and try to connect to the mobile hotspot, but it appears as NOT AVAILABLE … with shared data available and in the maximum coverage area
I try many times, I restart the computer, I restart the mobile, but it is impossible for me to connect, so I decide to leave. When I get home, 4 or 5 km away, I do a test to see if I can connect and, indeed, I do it the first time and “automatically” without any problem. I restart the GNSS several times and every time it works perfectly.
The next day I return to the place, this time with two mobiles (the OPPO and a somewhat older Samsung). I try again with the OPPO and I can’t connect, I try with the Samsung and neither. I try it with both mobiles, that is, using the OPPO as a modem and connecting the Samsung to the OPPO mobile access point, which connects without problems, but when I try to connect the RS2 to the same WIFI, it appears again as NOT AVAILABLE.
After many attempts, I get a few kilometers away from the area, and decide to put the SIM card in RS2, open Reach View3, configure it and get FIX without problems. I return to the area and turn on the equipment and quickly the RS2 lights tell me that corrections are coming in, the beep tells me that I have FIX, but when I open Reach View3, I update and the RS2 does not appear, that is: “Reach is not find". I wait a long time, I update countless times and the Reach still does not appear, although I continue to receive corrections and the team maintains the FIX solution. Again I decide to move away from the zone 1 or 2 KM and as “by magic”, I open Reach View and the RS2 appears as available, I receive corrections and I maintain the fix, that is, I am fully operational.
Could someone tell me what is happening in that area that does not allow me to use Reach View 3? I have thought about it a lot and I am unable to understand what is happening. Thanks in advance for your patience in reading this whole story…I hope someone gives me an answer.
