SimpleRTK2Blitre: I can not connect u-center software.

Q&A forumSimpleRTK2Blitre: I can not connect u-center software.
kodama asked 2 months ago

The other day I purchased simpleRTK2B + heading.
I tried to put new firmware into the included RTK2BLite module, but I couldn’t connect to Ublox U-center.
RTK2BLite is connected to a PC using a USB adapter for XBEE, but no settings can be made and data cannot be received in u-center. What should I do now.

What baud rate are you using? Which have you tried?

Of course I tried almost all baud rates.
However, I couldn’t see the settings in u-center at any baud rate.

https://www.ardusimple.com/simplertk2blite-hookup-guide/  chapter “XBee to USB Adapter”. if your PC doesn’t recognize the device, you will need the VCP driver from FTDI: https://www.ftdichip.com/ftdichip/Drivers/VCP.htm

Was able to connect to the prototype boards with the USB Dongle without any issues.
I would probably was for correct orientation, and pin alignment.

I can’t connect u-center on Windows10 to simpleRTK2lite.
Is there a foto how the USB adapter shall be mounted onto the simpleRTK2lite (which direction)?
The FTDI download fails,
  https://www.ftdichip.com/ftdichip/Drivers/CDM/CDM%20v2.12.28%20WHQL%20Certified.zip
leads to nothing.
Any idea?

everyone,
When the baud rate was set to 38400, data could be received by u-center.
This sends RTCM1234, 4072, but isn’t NMEA etc. outputting? Where can I set it?

Check UBX-CFG-PRT for enabled protocols, check UBX-CFG-MSG for specific messages
