RTK / NTRIP Logging

Olaf Hildebrand shared this idea 16 months ago


I'm currently testing an RTK / NTRIP system together with logging in Locus Map, which allows a much more precise localisation of the logging phone down to 1-2 cm!!

Up to now it is a bit difficult to combine both systems because there is no hiking app on the market, which provides the relevant features.

Do you want to be the first?

I'm sure that this technic will be relevant for all track logging apps in the future.

Just to make sure: I don' want to sell something, I' an interested user an engineer.

If you are interested in more information, please contact me

To make it a bit more clear:

You can now already connect Locus with external sensors but for the optimization of the GPS signal, the NTRIP correction data have to be loaded. Not a big thing, just a feature but the difference of the position quality is amazing.

In the attached picture you can see a tracking in forest area with typical mobile phone GPS quality problems. The green line is logged with RTK data.



Hello Olaf

do you know

Thanks very much for your help! You're my hero of the day ;-)

Maybe some optimisations are possible

- Storing different connections with naming

- Making download value visible (see other NTRIP client apps)

- Some connections/ Mountpoints are not working but they do in other apps

Nevertheless I'm once more really happy that I made the decision to use Locus as my hiking app!
