Reach RX is a network-rover
Reach RX uses the Bluetooth LE connection to your phone/tablet to receive a feed from the Internet, via an NTRIP[?] caster, so you’ll need some NTRIP credentials.
But don’t worry if you don’t have NTRIP credentials at the moment, because you could
- A) use a Reach RS2+ as your base-station, employing Emlid’s easy NTRIP casterfor the task; or
- B) pick up some NTRIP credentials from a local, government, or large-network NTRIP provider [extensive list].
- C) and operate their own NTRIP caster, e.g. using source code from GitHub.] (For advanced users).
