Providing Internet for MSRTK Module with your Smartphone

The following steps show a way to share your internet-access of your Smartphone to the MSRTK-Module. Please keep in mind that your smartphone-contract meets the data-amount of receiving RTCM correction data. For one hour the overall received data is roughly 20 MByte.

Step 1: Toggle the WiFi-Modus of your MSRTK-Module from AP-Mode to normal Mode, whereby MSRTK Module is connecting to the listet (known) SSID-Networks. Figure 1 shows the corresponding step in the Wizard. Please restart your MSRTK Module and keep it in the near of your Smartphone. After the steps in this guide the MSRTK-Module should connect to the SSID=ANavS_MSRTK_Hotspot (Password: anavsrtk) .

Step 2: Create a hotspot using your Smartphone with the following SSID and Password:
Password: anavsrtk

Step 3: Connect your Laptop/PC with this new WiFi-Hotspot (SSID: ANavS_MSRTK_Hotspot).

Step 4: Find out the IP-address of your Laptop/PC with command-line and the instruction ifconfig (Linux-OS) or ipconfig (Windows-OS) . Please take care, you need the IP-address of your WLAN-Modul, not of your Ethernet-connection or something else.

Step 5: Scan the network for the IP address of the MSRTK Module with a proper scanning tool (e.g. nmap). A description of the nmap-tool is given in the article Using the IP scanning-tool NMAP. The listed IP-address, which is not your Smartphone (IP: X.X.X.1) or your Laptop/PC should be your MSRTK Module. Normally the hostname MSRTK5 is resolved to find it faster.

Step 6: Navigate to …/ANavS_RTK_Wizard/ANavS_PAD/configs, open the file ip_table.conf and change the IP-address of the line with IP_MSRTK_module to the one found by the network scan.

Step 7: Start the ANavS® Wizard software and continue with the settings for your MSRTK Module. The MSRTK Module is now receiving correction data over your Smartphone.
