Which way round is the RTK reciever connected to the USB adapter?
Presumably the USB port on the adapter board is opposite the top board’s antenna ????
Thanks.

correct, in simplertk2blite with miniusb adapter, the usb is opposite side of the SMA antenna connector.

Thanks for reply. I have plugged MiniUSB-to-Everything adapter into ucenter with the simpleRTK2Blite attached and the green ‘no TRK’ light comes on but there’s no connection. I read somewhere about the need to install some drivers for the USB. Please could you tell me what they are ? I’m using Windows 10 for Ucenter. Thanks.

Just to add – I have a COM serial port connection to the usb adapter, but no connection to the simpleRTK2Blite.

Hi Patrick,
If you see a new COM port under the Windows Device Manager, then probably the problem is the baudrate configuration, check this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcHDmD_9r-k

If you don’t see a COM port under the Windows Device Manager, then probably you are missing the drivers, you will find the link in the hookup guide: https://www.ardusimple.com/simplertk2blite-hookup-guide/

OK … Thanks …. Autobauding fixed it and found the baud rate of 38400.
