ReachView v2.21.1 for Reach RS and Reach RTK

Ok I tried it again for sure on usb3.0 Same thing it connects quickly goes to about the middle of the slider on program the reach unit shuts down and starts up again the light is white/red solid never blinks again and the slider on program never moves . I would say it takes less than a minute to get to that point so very quickly.

When I attempt to uninstall the software I get the following error:

I re-installed the program. There appears to be many more files in the directory now, including the Maintenance Tool that was previously missing. I still get stuck at Disconnect step. Attached are the most recent logs.logs.zip (2.1 KB)

Hello tatiana.andreeva

I think probably it may have been a power issue with the USB.
1> I had been using USb ports on the front of my desktop when the updates failed
2> I just updated both those units by using the USB ports on the back of my desktop
3> the updater goes very quickly (maybe 15 seconds) to the middle of slider bar then stops turns off the reach unit and restarts it, then takes about 3 minutes to finish the update.

After the update initial connection has to be done by connecting to the reach units wifi network and not thru your house or regular network, which I believe is throwing Francesco off. Once you have saved the house or normal router network all seems well.

Thank you very much for your attention to y problems.

Hi Jim,

Glad to hear this issue is resolved now! :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi Cody,

May I ask you to accomplish the steps below?

  1. Open Command Prompt
  2. Enter cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Reach Firmware Flash Tool
  3. Run dir and then .\watch_controller.exe commands
  4. Copy the output of both of these commands and share it with us

I see there was an update to the updater it is nicer with the percentage done showing…

New problem now I have updated all 4 of my reach rtk units but am not getting any satellite readings at all?

Thanks Jim

Hi Jim,

It’s interesting. The update shouldn’t have affected GNSS reception. Just to make sure, do you have antennas connected to your devices?

Per request, output from cmd below:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Reach Firmware Flash Tool>dir
Volume in drive C is OSDisk
Volume Serial Number is FCA6-D28E

Hi Dmitriy

Ok my mistake I tried from a window in the house. Usually in the past I have gotten Sat’s from there. Any ways when outdoors it gets Sat’s but takes some time to get them and then there are only 12 to 13 and before the update I would get 20 to 23 easily. in the same spot, The number takes another few minutes to show up on the status. Also the units take longer to get to a green light than before, I would assume this is because the program is bigger now. Will do some more checking in the next couple of days. Thanks Jim

Is there a way to flash a reach rtk that has no usb port? (usb port broke a while ago)

I will say that I tried flashing a cpl Reach RTK original units from a surface pro 4 USB 3.0 and had no luck, seems these are very finicky with proper power. I then used my pc and everything went a ok. If anyone is having issues I suggest you use a powered USB port or at least keep your laptop plugged in while updating the reach RTK’s. I have now successfully flashed 2 RS units and 4 Reach RTK units with no issue, My new RS2 will be here in about 48 hours, way to go on the quick shipping especially with what’s going on in Hong Kong right now, hope you are all well!!

Hi, @jmiranda! Thank you for your interest, but unfortunately there’s no other way than flashing your Reach RTK using USB cable. The whole process involves some low-level tasks which can be performed only by the Flash Tool.

Hello, guys!

We just pushed v2.21.1 . You can see the updated changelog in the first message of the thread.

Best regards,

Does this also count for Reach RTK, RS that have been flashed with dev 2.21?

From the link above:

@bide
My reasoning for asking was that this first initial post was originally posted for the 2.21 firmware that later came out and was avialable for RS and RTK. Please see below quote

My reason for asking if the 2.21.1 works on reach rtk and rs was due to the fact they just edited a 22 day old post and added an oct 24, 2019 post that does not what so ever speak to the reach rtk and rs systems. the quote you quoted was from 22 days ago when the update to reach rtk and rs wasn’t available I have now upgraded them using the re flash firmware and have brought them to the same version of the rs2. There is no mention on the Oct. 24 2019 update of v2.21.1 not being available to upgrade, good sir do please tell me if I am wrong? Please see quote below.

2.21.1 is also available for Reach RTK and Reach RS. If you flashed your devices with 2.21.0, you can perform OTA update.

Hi Cody,

Sorry for the delayed response!

We’ve analyzed your data, and one of the flasher’s services returns “Access is denied” error.

It seems that you need to change user permissions for the Reach Flasher Manufacturing Tool directory to make it work.

Is there any chance you can try running the Flasher on another PC/laptop?
