Really? these are the ONLY things in the new release? When the heck are you going to improve the app to allow calculation of the mean position (and RMS error) for points logged at a single location over an occupancy period of several minutes? This is one of the most common uses for these devices and I’ve had to use a 3rd party app (posprocessor_v0.2.1 referred to on the forum) to do this. It works but it is a bit clunky and not clear how or if it screens points based on quality. Several other users have come up with their own versions of this. But your app should make this easy.
OK thanks for this but I’m confused. Your link refers to an update for ReachView for “all Reach devices” but the follow up link is for updating the Reach RTK and Reach RS. I’m using the RS2 but I’m guessing this counts as one of the “all Reach Devices.” Following this link seems to get into updating firmware not on my device but on the RS2 itself.
On my ipad, I’m running reachview v 2.20.7. When I go to the App store and click on version history, it just lists v1.5 last updated 8 months ago. Maybe I’m missing something but I don’t see how to updated to v2.22.1. Can you clarify?
At this point in time, ReachView proper is a web server that runs on your Reach device. You can access ReachView by typing Reach’s local IP address into your browser. It has version numbers like the title of the post: v2.23.0 and you can see that at the top of your ReachView screen.
The ReachView app for Android/iOS is the thing that runs on your smart device. It helps you find Reach on your local network and it will bring up the ReachView web page in a browser window. This app is used for a more seamless user experience. You can see the version of the ReachView app in your smartphone settings menu, along with your other apps.
So yes, you can upgrade your Android/iOS app, and you can also update your Reach firmware, but they are separate things.
As of right now, if you want new features on your Reach device, this is not something that comes from an app store. It comes direct from Emlid’s servers by an OTA update which you can trigger from the ReachView settings menu (gear icon).
(Another way is to download and reflash your Reach’s firmware, but you still have to perform the OTA update afterward.)
Your Reach device is running ReachView firmware v2.20.7 (outdated)
Your iPad is running the iOS ReachView app v1.5 (current)
I can understand complaining about missing features, but you need to understand that this dev release is addressing critical, process-breaking regressions that appeared in 2.22. I would have complained rightfully if this had taken weeks to address, but blaming the devs for addressing serious issues as quickly as they did is a bit perplexing.
