I’m not getting RTK connection using Mission Planner (v 126.96.36.199).
I Have a 3DR Solo, with Drotek NEO M8P GPS for 3DR Solo
I also have a Drotek XXL RTK Base
I have updated my Solo firmware to Open Solo 3.0
I have also updated my firmware on my NEO 8MP GPS to HPG_1.40 using U-Center software v8.28
The downloaded firmware file for NEO M8P GPS - File --> NEO-M8P-FW301-HPG140_RNwithFW.zip
In unzip format, it contains contains 3 files.
and PDF Doc (with no useful information on method or procedure of firmware update).
As for my method using U-Center (v8.28),
In opening the Tools pull-down and clicking on Firmware Update,
I am presented with a window asking the Firmware Image
I assumed Firmware file - DO_EXT_301_HPG_140_ROVER.91bbd17d889e0fe40c2d823991595224.BIL is the file they want for NEO M8P GPS update?
However, the Window also asks for a Flash Information Structure (FIS) file / Flash Definition File (FDF).
FIS Format as .xml or FDF as .txt
In looking for such a FIS file, I read via forum that it is located within the u-center folder,
installed on the hard drive (program files (x86)/u-blox/u-center_V./Flash.xml
In giving it a Go, it seemed to work - Green = Good.
In addition on same update page, I changed the baudrate of 38400 bits/sec,
as suggested by Drotek configuring documents.
Not sure if this was necessary, as default was set at original 9600 bits/sec.
Is this a good, bad or irrelevant move?
I am concerned that the missing file -> DO_EXT_301_HPG_140_REFERENCE.ab799cc302b64f28ba73b55dfa945a04.BIN remains hanging.
Is this BIL file used for update of the XXL RTK Base?
or, why is this other REFERENCE BIL file attached in the update ZIP file? - What is it used for?
As for not getting RTK Float or RTK Fix.
I have correctly connected and performed Initial setup of the Drotek XXL RTK Base in MP.
The BASE GPS is Valid indicated by green bar & multiple satellites detected.
Through RTK/GPS Inject page in MP, I used a survey coordinate position for the Survey-in method.
I have connected my Solo to MP via the UDP Client. The connection good (as test, I have written a mission into the Solo computer).
Although I proceed to the Flight Data page in Mission Planner,
I read that onboard GPS is connected (bottom right corner of screen) in white 'EFK Vibe GPS: 3D FIX,
But I see no RTK GPS connection (No GPS:rtk Float or no GPS:rtk Fixed)
I suspect there is no telemetry connection between my RTK Base and my RTK onboard GPS.
My question being: Do I need to synchronize the telemetry frequency on the MAVLink so the Base (XXL RTK GPS) is in communication with the on board RTK GPS (NEO M8P GPS)?
Or something else? Do I need to change the baudrate of 38400 bits/sec on my XXL GPS Base somehow?
