RS2: position lost when mobile data is lost

I have a bug of the RS2 (running 2.21.2-dev):
I have the RS2 connected to a tablet hotspot, and recieve NTRIP corrections via the internet.

When the mobiel data is lost (no coverage or switched off), after 10-12 seconds the position is lost, no satellites show on status panel, and non of the other fields on status panel is updated anymore.

When data is regained/switched on, position is recovered after a view seconds, and all status fields are live again.

Luckily there is an easy workaround: Put the SIM into the RS2, and share internet to tabletSystemReport_position_lost_withoutdata.zip (1.7 MB)

I don’t have an RS2, but I can tell you that this was our experience when trying NTRIP with our machine control and combined with the “slow” network conditions from our available providers is why we stuck with local base stations.

With the RS1, we didn’t have this issue. if the mobile data is lost, it will keep a float for a while, and then just continue with a “single” solution, until corrections come in again.
