I am using a pair of RS2 as Base and Rover with great success to survey the installation of underground services, locate several hundred landscapes lightning and other construction on a private farm of about 13 acres. My equipment is less than two year old, and has about 50 hours of operations since I bought it. Both RS2 are kept in there carrying case when not in service.
Prior to write here, I scan the web for an answer and couldn’t find anything that relate to the following behaviour that exist only on my Rover:
After powering ON the Rover, about 50% of the time the Correction input setting for the Lora antenna change to Serial (RS-232-38400) by itself without reason and every other setting are fine. When this append, it became impossible to select the LoRa anymore. I keep getting the same error message ‘Couldn’t apply Changes’ in a black box.
The strangest behaviour is that if I completely turn off and on (reboot) the unit several time. After several cycle, it finally accept the configuration for the Lora Correction input and then keep it all day long until the next power off. This has never happened on the Base unit (but the base only use Lora in output) even if both are always reinstall at the same time for every use.
The problem was not present when I started to use Reachview 3 with both RS2 units in development Firmware a year ago. Maybe a coincidence, but the problem start to appear several month ago with the upgrade to the version v2.24.2 Stable. Today, I upgrade the Rover to the version 27.1 and the problem is still there.
I also upgrade Rechview 3 to version 6.9 without any success in relation to this problem.
