Running GP-Probe TGE2 is a breeze (We genuinely believe that :-). Just follow a few simple steps:

Before using the device, please review the technical specifications provided in the datasheet

1. First power-on

The probe has no power button, so once you plug in the power cable the probe will start up immediately. 

By default, all three GNSS channels are activated, resulting in Hardware Error 478 and a red LED near each GNSS port:

Once the GNSS antennas are connected, this error will be resolved. The probe will show the status "Connecting" and then "Offline":

All management of GP-Probe is conducted via an integrated web-based configuration panel.

Now you should install GNSS antennas and set up a connection to GP-Cloud or activate the Onboard Signal Processing option.

2. GNSS Antennas Installation

GPSPATRON's algorithms for GNSS interference detection and classification are calibrated to operate under a wide range of challenging conditions. You can use inexpensive magnetic GNSS antennas and install them on the windowsill in your office. But the better the antennas are installed, the more efficient the system will be.

Common recommendations:

  • Average SNR > 30 dB
  • Antennas see the whole sky 
  • All three antennas are installed in the same conditions
  • Avoid RF signal reflections

3. Connect GP-Probe to GP-Cloud and Calibrate

3.1 GP-Probe Registration in GP-Cloud

First, you should register the probe's ID in GP-Cloud. GP-Probe ID is the unique identifier of the device. You can find it on the instrument screen and in the Web Configuration Panel:

The registration can solely be performed by the system admin on GP-Cloud's user interface:

  • Navigate to the "Probes" menu and click on "Add New Probe".
  • In the popup, choose the probe's model, make up a password (remember it for the next step), and type in the probe's ID:

3.2 GP-Probe Connection Configuration

The GP-Probe TGE2 can transmit data to the cloud using either an Ethernet connection or a built-in 3/4G modem.

Steps to Connect GP-Probe to the Cloud:

  • Access the GP-Probe TGE2 Web Configuration Panel.
    Default URL: 
    Default user/password: admin/admin
    Learn more here:
  • Navigate to the "Connection Config" menu.
  • Enter the URL/IP of your GP-Cloud server instance.
    If you're using our cloud service, then leave
  • Enter the API password you created when registering the probe in the GP-Cloud.
  • Select your preferred data streaming method: either through the Ethernet port or the built-in 3/4G modem.
  • Set up the network IP connection as required:

That's it! Your GP-Probe should now be connected and ready to stream data:

3.3 GP-Cloud Algorithm Calibration

You can access the data coming from the probe through your GP-Cloud account, but the probe's status may not be displayed as "Normal". It is more likely to show "Anomaly" or "Low Position Accuracy". To rectify this, simply open the Probe Config Popup, recalculate a new reference position, and reset the calibration:
