WARNING - Never power the rover with the antenna detached. Doing so could damage the RF signal chain and degrade performance.

The rover comes with an antenna that is pre-configured to work with the SLANTRANGE sensor.

Once the rover is powered by the sensor via the RTK AIS cable, it will automatically start calculating a GPS solution. It uses the RTCM data from the base station and radios to calculate a more accurate RTK GPS solution. If no RTCM messages are received, the Rover reverts to a standard GPS solution.

LED Indicators:

  • Blue solid - the rover unit has power.
  • Red blinking - rover unit has an RTK FLOAT or FIXED GPS fix type.
  • Red off - rover unit has no RTK GPS fix type.
