Content Inside: Selecting a Cell Phone Modem for Survey Pro NTRIP Using Survey Pro's NTRIP Solution requires a digital cell phone capable of connecting a PDA to the Internet utilizing a digital data plan. If the cell phone will allow the PDA to surf the Internet, it can be used with a TDS Ranger or Recon and Survey Pro's NTRIP solution. Cell Phone Requirements: � Digital cell phone compatible with cell service provider. � Cell phone must be web-enabled. This means can it can handle both voice calls and transmit data. This is often referred to as dual mode. Newer cell phones are web-enabled. If you aren't sure about your cell phone, you can check the specifications in its User Guide or find out by calling the technical support number for your phone. � The cell phone will need to have Bluetooth or a cable data port. Cell Phone Provider Requirements: � Offers digital voice service. � Offers digital data service. Data Service Plans: Different cell phone service providers and some ISP's offer data connection plans. You may have to have your service provider unlock or enable data services on your cell phone in order to use the cell phone as a modem. Be aware: Surveying via NTRIP is data-transfer intensive. Depending upon the RTK correction format your Network uses, you will transfer 2-5 MB of data per hour. RTK Correction Format Usage/Hour CMR/CMR+ 2 MB RTCM 4-5 MB For this reason we recommend getting a plan that offers unlimited digital data transfer. Connection Speed: Browsing the Internet with your Ranger or Recon by using your cell phone as a modem will not be as fast as using a Wi-Fi hot spot or other broadband connection method. If you require the Internet connection only to send and receive email and do light Internet surfing, the connection speed should be adequate for your needs.
