Reach Firmware 28 Update Features Enhanced RINEX Logging

Reach Firmware 28 update is out for all devices. We have added RINEX presets for OPUS and popular PPP (Precise Point Positioning) services, advanced raw data logging settings, and other valuable improvements.

Seamless Compatibility with OPUS or PPP Services

Ready-to-use presets ease your work with OPUS or popular PPP services: AUSPOS, IBGE, CSRS—you can learn more about PPP in our Docs. To record data for a particular PPP service, open ReachView 3 and go to the Logging screen. Choose a preset, and the app will adjust the logs for the required services.

Note that you can process logs from single-band Reach RS+ or Reach M+ receivers only using IBGE and CSRS services. For more details, you can check the step-by-step guide on recording logs for PPP in our Docs section.

If you don’t need presets for PPP services, you can still configure RINEX logging manually—choose the Custom label or use the default setup in the Raw data settings.

Advanced Logging Setup

We have also enhanced the logging configuration. Now you can enable or disable recording the backup UBX log when logging to RINEX.

In the Raw data settings, you may choose to use the Reach RS2 or Reach RS+ antenna height—the required data will be added to the RINEX file.

Other improvements

Among other things, with the latest update, we have delivered the following improvements:

  • Added the ability to downgrade from Beta to the latest stable release without reflashing—e.g., if you try the next Beta release of Reach Firmware, you can switch back to the Reach Firmware 28 stable version.
  • Made Reach M+/M2 visible in ReachView 3 without connecting the antenna and being in the hotspot mode.
  • Improved work with RTCM3 messages—antenna phase center offset is applied if corrections contain an RTCM3 antenna description message.
  • Configured the output of the last valid heading (COG) in NMEA VTG and RMC messages when there is no movement.
  • Implemented miscellaneous stability improvements.
