Following the launch of its Android application in 2018, Geneq is now launching an iOS version of its SXblue ToolBox for iOS-compatible SXblue devices.

The application was developed with special interest paid to raw data recording and NTRIP service connection.

With the SXblue ToolBox iOS application, the user can analyze the position data provided by the SXblue receiver, as well as location metadata.

More important for SXblue clients, the application can record, save and transfer raw data from the GNSS receiver, thereby allowing post-processing activities. The application also acts as a NTRIP client, capable of connecting to a NTRIP server for real-time kinematic (RTK) corrections, and thus allows the receiver to issue very accurate location information.

Receiver configuration is easy through the application, with the ability to set up and save user-defined commands for subsequent use. The settings include constellation to be used, differential source, NTRIP login credentials list and more.

In addition, the iOS application includes a series of audible and visual alarms that are user-configurable to determine the thresholds of information provided by the SXblue GNSS receiver.

The main features of the iOS SXblue ToolBox application are:

  • Display of location information and quality of positioning data
  • Skyplot of all-in-view constellations: GPS, GLONASS, Galileo BeiDou, QZSS, SBAS
  • Recording of raw data and data transfer
  • NTRIP/DIP client to receive RTK corrections
  • Terminal to send commands and view the output data of the SXblue device
  • Audible and visual alarms
  • Activation of options and licenses via the application.
