Update to Add GLONASS to Non-GLONASS GNSS Receivers
in Matrix Pro GS & Aeros Consoles
GLONASS capability can now enabled at no-cost in Matrix Pro GS and Aeros consoles that originally shipped without GLONASS.
This update converts the GNSS receiver from ‘Receiver 6’ to ‘Receiver 7’. Updating is an easy process that can be done using the USB port on the Matrix Pro GS and Aeros consoles.
NOTE: This update is only supported by Matrix Pro GS consoles running v3.04 or later, and Aeros consoles running v4.00 or later, but it is highly recommended that you update to console v4.11 in order to utilize a number of new GNSS capabilities introduced in v4.11. If your console is running an older version, the console update can be downloaded from the Tech Support->Software/Firmware Updates section at www.teejet.com.
Determine if Update is Compatible
The best way to determine if your unit should be updated is to check the "Receiver" number as shown.
Go to Configuration->GNSS Receiver Configuration->GNSS Status Information and verify the values for "Receiver".
If the receiver is Receiver: 6, this update will update the GNSS receiver to Receiver: 7.
If the receiver is already Receiver: 7, there is no need to continue with this update.
NOTE: The GNSS receiver version must be 010201 in order for this update to complete. If the version in your receiver is older (010016, 010102, or 010105), the update to 010201 must be installed first, and can be downloaded from the Tech Support->Software/Firmware Updates/Matrix Pro ClearPath Receiver Update section at www.teejet.com.
The GNSS antenna must be GLONASS capable. TeeJet’s optional RXA-30 antenna is already GLONASS capable, but most Patch antennas sold with Matrix Pro GS consoles equipped with Receiver 6 GNSS receivers are GPS only, and will have to be replaced with GLONASS capable antennas in order to receive and apply GLONASS observations. Options include the RXA-30 antenna (part number 90-02720), and the GLONASS patch antenna (part number 78-50190).
