The RD8200SG is fitted with multiple Bluetooth modules. You need to connect to 2 Bluetooth modules to enable survey grade accuracy and send Survey Measurements to your compatible Android device.

  1. GNSS Bluetooth module. This Bluetooth module enables survey grade accuracy.
  2. Locator Bluetooth module. This Bluetooth module allows you to send locator Survey Measurements to compatible Android devices.

1. Pairing the GNSS antenna Bluetooth module to an Android device

The GNSS Bluetooth module is always on and does not need to be enabled in the locator.

Switch on the RD8200SG locator. On your Android device:

2. Ensure that Bluetooth connectivity is switched on.

3. Scan for a new device to add to the list of paired devices
