Here is some helpful tips for using RTK GPS:

  1. Never use Read GPS twice on a project. On the 2nd day setup in Equip / GPS Base use the "From Known" tab and the "Read From File" button
  2. Store a point thats easy to get to on the 1st day after staking out all your known Control Points and checking that you are properly localized. !!! Stakeout this point 2 to 4 times a day and every time you setup your base or start a new CRD coordinate file on the same project
  3. The easiest way to move a base is to store a point with the Rover then use "Previously Surveyed Point" to setup your Base over the new point After starting a Base with Read GPS, Enter Grid, Previously Surveyed Point or Use Local Coordinates we recommend saving a *.REF file then revert back the next time we setup to using the "From Known" tab and use "Read from File".
