I saw talk of the Global 3G cellular module going into the shop, any chance of the Digi XBee3 Cellular LTE-M/NB-IoT as well. 3Gs being phased out from next year here in Australia. And off the top of your head, any reason it wouldn’t plug n play with SimpleRTK2B easily?
Cheers

Hi Pat,
simpleRTK2B is compatible with Digi XBee 3G and LTE-M modules, the only issue is that no-one has developed a software that can run on their microphyton environment that does the job of connecting to an NTRIP server ūüôā We are still considering if doing it or not, as we are not sure people is willing to pay for the data connection cost.

Thanks, for the answer, here’s a one up from me for it, though I’m imagining I can pull it off easy enough with a couple of androids. Cheers

Hello, you have another option, ESPrtk. It does not require any data charges. It supports NTRIP + Bluetooth + Ublox Configure with high speed WIFI connection. When combining ESPrtk with simpleRTK2B you will have a complete and independent system. Connecting to the SimpleRTK2B is also very simple: F9P ZED Ublox and ESPrtk simpleRTK2B-ESP32 RTK - Low cost RTK - NTRIP MQTT WIFI Bluetooth.jpg
