UNI-Connect is the app, working on any device device with a browser, to control the UNI-GR1. UNI-Connect comes for free with the UNI-GR1 and it can work on many devices. It allows you to measure points, create logs and much more! You can use it with your smartphone, tablet, laptop or personal computer. It doesn’t matter whether you work with an iPad, Android Tablet, smartphone or laptop, it works! With this, we guarantee you flexibility on the job and great results in the field!
See how many satellites the UNI receives!
The dashboard gives you a complete overview of the current position status of the UNI-GR1 GNSS receiver. It shows you how many satellites signals the UNI-GR1 is receiving, the sky-plot of the satellites and the current fix status. In a blink of an eye you can see how many sats you are tracking and what deviation the UNI gives you. Combined with UNI-RTK Premium you will usually see an RTK Fix status here with a centimeter level deviation, making sure you can start surveying!
Check out the statusbar!
Apart from the dashboard, the status bar stays with you in all areas of the app so you can constantly monitor the device vitals. Check whether you have a fix, if the UNI is connected to the UNI-Cloud, whether you are receiving UNI-RTK Premium corrections, your mobile connection is up and what your current battery status is.
Points, Lines & Polygons
With the UNI-Connect interface you can easily store position points, lines or polygons and save them in layers. With an intuitive easy interface supported with a map under layer, anyone is able to get going. Due to the flexibility of the interface working on any device, the positioning of the buttons and the ease of use with icons; you only need your thumb to do the work!
Apart from storing points, of course you can also work the other way around. After loading points to the UNI-Connect interface through an SD card or only UNI-Cloud connection you can simply select your point on the map and follow the instructions to navigate to the point!
Manage your projects
Get started with projects! With the UNI-Connect app, you can easily start and create projects. You simply press the green button “new project” and you start the new project. Give this new project a name and optionally you can add a description that can be useful if a project needs a certain detail. Of course, you can configure different settings for each project.
Export to UNI-Cloud or SD
After the work is done and all points collected, you can export the projects holding your points to the UNI-Cloud or save them to an SD card. you can choose the desired format. Your data can be exported in CSV, DXF and other formats.
Work with layers!
Just like most surveying software, UNI-Connect also works with layers. If you measure points from different objects, you will like to store them in separate layers. Consider, for example, a layer for buildings, a layer for trees, a layer for guidance, a layer for obstacles. As a result, these layers ensure that there is no confusion between the various objects. Simply give each layer a different name and save them in different colors to make a distinction. Of course, you can also add a description and attributes.
Here you can define the properties of a layer and thus your points, lines or polygons. Suppose you have measured a pipe and saved it in a layer, then you would like to save its properties in this layer-line. With the attributes you can add and infinite amount of required or optional text boxes, pre-formatted codes and much more.
Manage your survey settings.
You can configure the settings separately for each project. This way you can set the minimum accuracy of the UNI-GR1. You can also set the minimum correction solution. You can choose between Fix, Float, and Single and optionally add a minimum accuracy. Let’s say you want to only store points with an RTK Fix and 2 cm accuracy, you can easily set it up and make sure you don’t make mistakes!
When measuring, you probably want to take into account the length of the pole that you use to record the positions. You can also set this in the survey settings. Our pole has a length of 2 meters, but you can adjust this setting to the height of your own pole.
Sync your profiles
With profiles you can set the UNI-GR1 as a base station or a rover and you can select which correction data you want to use in this field. You can set it up as standalone, DGPS or RTK in rover mode and fill out the necessary settings. Whether you want to receive NTRIP corrections or from a local UNI-GR1 as a base. Do you know you can also sync these profiles with the UNI-Cloud?
Output the data!
It is also possible to set in the profile through which medium the output of the positioning data has to go. among others you can output the date through Bluetooth, Micro-USB and Serial connections. Apart from the medium you can set different formats and adjust NMEA or RTCM output, like what messages they include as well as the Hz.
All in one place!
With the general settings area you can adjust settings like WiFi, Bluetooth and mobile data. You can set-up the UNI-Cloud, check who is connected to the hotspot and adjust the LED ring settings. Everything in one easy intuitive overview that works on any device!
The UNI-Connect and the UNI-GR1 will constantly receive free over the air software updates. We keep making new functions for the survey tool, additional settings to improve the workflow and other features. For example, in the future you will be able to use the UNI-GR1 with tilt compensation, making it easy to survey while the pole is not level!
