I’m trying to get a picture of the inter-operability potential of using the Reach RS2 as a base for other third party receiver makes, and am therefore asking if folks can please add to this thread with their experience using other 3rd party make rovers.
As things currently stand (under ReachView v2.20.7) the RS2 receiver is restricted to RTCM3.2 output using only the following MSM4 message types (MT’s): 1006, 1074, 1084, 1094 and 1124.
As far as I’m aware older GPS+GLO L1/L2 only receivers which are restricted to RTCM 3.1 message types won’t currently work with the RS2 acting as a base, as they lack the ability to decode any of the more “modern” MSM type messages.
Here are some of my tests so far (and where I think the issues lie):
ComNav T300: successful
Topcon AGI-4: unsuccessful - requires classic RTCM3.1 and MTs 1007/08
Trimble AG372: unsuccessful - requires MSM7 type messages and MT 1008 to be present
Trimble AG382: unsuccessful - as above.
Please add to the list with your own rover tests.
