I connected to RS receiver to them ReachView a software upgrade alert was present. At this moment is upgrade required but they show a message to use de re-flash tools. I follow the guideline and no was possible to upgrade my firmware.
The tool keeps in the second step y and no found the receiver.
Well… good luck… this is a problem that apparently Emlid is working on.
You can search about this… long confusing reads… but it is what it is.
I am sure I will be dealing with this again when I go to update again.
My biggest problem is USB-to-PC isn’t working with my (2) RS Edison based receivers. Seems the PLUS versions and beyond don’t have these issues. Obviously the newer devices have moved on for the better… but there are still many original Reach / Reach RS users that need support.
Did you ever get your Reach RS detected and updated?
If not, I really think you have to follow the solution link below. Basically you have to force Windows 10 to install UNSIGNED DRIVERS (the Edison drivers). Then the Flash Tool should be able to detect the older edison based Reach RS in order to install latest firmware. After that initial install, you won’t have to install via this route, but can from within ReachView Control Panel. (I do not think you need to install the Zadig USB drivers, I think that is for the Reach RS+ units (Neutis), which do not use Edison chip).
Well. Not all cables are capable of data transfere but PISEN does. Some is charge only.
And without knowing it’s kind of hard to tell if the cable would transfere or not.
So it’s just easier to refer to the PISEN.
Yes, new version flash tool seems to work for its purpose to update, thank you. But sending NMEA data via USB-to-PC connection still never works with Reach RS Edison units even after uninstalling Edison v1.2.1 drivers and reinstalling new Flash Tool that “supposedly” installs what is needed for detection?
Anyone else able to use the USB-to-PC connection feature successfully to a Windows COM port? (not Bluetooth, but USB cable).
