Surpad 4.0 with RS2 does it work good?

Hello, I have been looking at software so I can do line deployments using cad files and I came across the surpad4 software someone here uses it with RS2 to give me some feedback.

Te recomiendo Topview

It is ok. The bluetooth of RS 2 make some problems when you lose the data connection

With Surpad 4.0 you have the advantage of using TCP client connection no need to use bluetooth connection.

I am not sure what you mean by “line deployments”

Not sure if this would work for you but, I use an app by Trimble called WM-Survey II. It works with their monitors and software. If I remember correctly, it can output data three ways, trimble proprietary/csv/shp. If it will work for your application it is FREE which I find a great feature!

AND YOU CAN SHOW US WHAT THESE SETTINGS ARE FOR EMLID SO WE DON’T USE BLUETOUTH ANYMORE

Hi Gabriel,

With ReachView (Rover):

1- Poition output Enable output on TCP
Role = Server.
Adress = localhost.
Port = 9001.
Format = NMEA.

With SurPad :

2- Goto Device --> Communication
Device manufacturer = Other.
Device Type = RTK(NMEA0183).
Communication Mode = TCP Client.
IP = 192.168.X.X assigned IP adress to your Rover by default (192.168.42.1).
Port = 9001 (a same port set above with ReachView).
Connect.

3- To receive corrections set Rover option.
Finally do not forget to set antenna parameters (Antenna Measured Height and Type).

it worked almost like oil, but I noticed that there are no interruptions until the data is updated, otherwise everything seems perfect if you can tell me what settings you have on gnss seting

I am happy that all works fine for you :wink:.
