Tips for connecting to Reach RS2+ in Emlid Flow

The guide Connecting to Reach RS2+ shows you how to set up the connection to the receiver in the Emlid Flow app. But what if you can’t connect to the unit? In this post, we’ve put together some tips to help in such a case.

The steps we suggest depend on whether your Reach RS2+ transmits its hotspot or is connected to a Wi-Fi network. To determine this, check the status of the Network LED. If it’s solid white, the unit is in hotspot mode. A solid blue LED means that the receiver is connected to Wi-Fi or, in other words, it’s in client mode.

Let’s get started with the tips:

P.S. Don’t miss one of our previous posts on how to get corrections from an NTRIP service with your Reach RS2+.

I have tried to like the RS 2 I really have but purchasing it was just a waste of money. I have probably spent 30 to 40 hours trying to get it to work but it just wont. When I try to connect to the rs2 hotspot all i get is incorrect password. Bluetooth corrections dont work. Even tried buying the sim card but was to that the internal modem “was too primitive”. I have followed every guide here step by step with no success. So I am going to have to buy something new and hopefully it will work. All I have now is a rather expensive door stop.

Hi Renzo,

Sorry for your troubles.

You say you are having multiple problems. Let’s start at the beginning.

Were you able to connect to the RS2s hotspot for initial setup?

How do I reset it so it is back to initial setup status?

It boots up and the led goes blue. I can connect to the rs2 from my android device but dont get corrections from my ntrip service. as soon as i enable my device hotspot to connect to the ntrip service the connection to the rs2 drops.

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to update that we have contacted Renzo via PM to proceed with troubleshooting. If you have any similar issues, don’t hesitate to write us to, or create a new thread in the forum.

Hi Basil,

Once you enable the device hotspot, it starts broadcasting it. But your mobile device still broadcasts its own hotspot, so you don’t see Reach RS2 in the list. It should appear there when you connect your phone to the Reach RS2 hotspot.

If you can’t get corrections from the NTRIP service, it’s a separate issue that has to be troubleshot another way. Please send us an email to, so we’ll take a closer look into your case.
