LEICA GS15 Rover with Trimble base help
G'day everyone and thanks for accepting me in Surveyorconnect.
The company I work for has recently bought a kit of Leica GNSS receivers GS15.
We have three main sites where there are permanently installed Trimble bases. The Trimble bases are set to broadcast CMR protocol, with Trimtalk v1 at 9600 bps.
For the life of me, I can't get the GS15 rover to receive RTK corrections.
Has any other fellow surveyor ever had to handle a similar situation? If yes, would you be able to enlighten me in order to have my GS15 getting RTK from Trimble bases?
Thanks in advance everyone.
Check if the Trimble base is set to CMRx rather than just CMR or CMR+
The CMRx format is scrambled so only Trimble kit can understand it. You'll probably be getting 100% on your Radio but no fix.
Do you know which CMR protocol is being broadcast? (CMR, CMR+, CMRx) More than likely, you will have to change the broadcast protocols to RTCM.
Isn’t CMR a Trimble proprietary broadcast format?
The bigger issue will be using opposing manufacturer equipment. They're always fighting to stay ahead and playing nice isn't their main focus.
