Reach M+ and 3rd party Android Software (Localization Method)

Hello Guys!!!
Good news for professional surveyor who do a lot of Survey using Local Grid Control.
Today, I perform some experiment using my Reach M+ and an android software ( 3rd party software)
My Reach M+ perform well using the said software. I can perform Point Stakeout, Line Stake-out, Topo Survey and LOCALIZATION which is exactly lacking in REACHVIEW APP. Those who would like to do survey using Local Grid Control. This software is a Must for you. The software is very straight forward and almost perform like a Field Genius FG9. I believe emlid team will not waste their efforts and time on incorporating a CRS method and localization in their Reachview. I still suggest to emlid team to add it on reachview app.

Software is expensive and time consuming to develop and maintain. Not sure who was the survey influencer, but it doesn’t seem like there was an end-to-end workflow created or some of the feature requests over the last 6-months would have been parts of the original release. Nonetheless, progress is the name of the game and they should be commended for that.

Hello! How to add an antenna? I can not connect to bluetooth android and reach

You should connect Reach and your mobile device via bluetooth and follow the steps shown in the pictures. Step 1, 2 and 3 are about connecting your mobile device with Reach. Step 4, 5, 6 are about adding an antenna, but you can also edit and rename one of the existing antenna’s. According to @agrimgalina post above the settings for “Radius”, “Phase Center” and “Bottom height” for Reach RS/RS+ should be: Radius 0.07, Phase Center 0.065, Bottom Height 0.00.

Like it! Doing similar in FieldGenius, but much more survey scope. I’d like to try some of these apps, but I think they are a light for what we are doing.

Just to make sure, can EMLID please confirm the ANTENNA RADIUS is in fact 0.07m or 70mm for the Reach RS/RS+?

Seems to me it should be whatever this physically measured distance is? Emlid would know versus guessing.
