Can anyone suggest a currently available Bluetooth connected RTK GPS receiver which can use the NTRIP internet *psudo-base" signal over the mobile phone signal ? Preferably one that doesn't need a lot of self assembly because I am not a talented solderer. This would be used for field surveying with the OOMapper app on a tablet. In a dark, dark wood.

I have an ArduSimple RTK2Blite GPS kit which works with the android app "Bluetooth GNSS" and OOmapper. Its not as simple as it sounds, I had a lot of trouble with bluetooth pairing. But when it works to 20cm its pretty sweet.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the type of errors you get in forest are multipath errors, reflections from trees or ground. NTRIP / RTK does not correct that type of errors at all. It makes accuracy in open areas better, but accuracy in dark forest improves a lot less.

Bluetooth drop out is a frustrating problem with both an older Delorme unit and the SkyPro XGPS160 receiver. What can be done to improve connectivity?
