I have recently received my Ardusimple and I am trying to set it up as a base that connects to my PC thru USB and have it output RTCM3 to rtk2go.com Ntrip caster.
I am using STRSVR from rtklib to send the data but it currently works partially as the Ntrip caster reports a few 1005 messages but doesn’t seem to get a position:
I am getting “Signals: GPS: No GLO: No QZSS: No GAL: No BeiD: No WAAS: No ” from my mount point status report page on the caster.
I have a couple of questions:
1. For the base station to be enabled, I understand that some changes are required on the Ardusimple device thru u-Center to change the device setup as base.
I have tried to use the file “srtk2b_base_FW_HPG111.txt” (Firmware v1.11 / Download rover configuration file)
from here: https://www.ardusimple.com/question/example-configuration/?ans-page=1
Is that correct ?
The configuration does not seem persistent after GPS restarts so I need to reload this configuration file every time ?
Are other settings required in u-Center to get my device setup as a base output RTCM3 on USB port ?
2. Do I need changes to make changes in STRSVR ?
Particularly, define a string with any options for the “NTRIP Server Options” in the Output / NTRIP Server ?
Are other options required in the “Conversion Option” from the NTRIP Server output ? or the GPS will provide the right RTCM3 format and the proper message type without any further configuration ?
Thank you for your help.
1. Make sure you select “Store configuration in Flash/BBR when loading the configuration file so it stays after reset.
2. For this one I will need some help from the community, I have no experience with rtk2go.
You can check this thread its just in German.
Hi, were you able to solve this problem? I’m having the same issue, only 1005 messages going through.
Thank you Jerry Dueck for the link, I found some interesting tips there.
I found many useful information to get a better understanding on the Ardusimple and u-center configuration in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8PUyOtiGKo
The interesting part is mostly at the end after minute 37 and minute 51 for RTCM related info.
