We are working on setting up an Underwater GPS G2 with a U1 locator indoors.
During the process of setting up the G2 system/validating proper functionality of a cheap cabled Chinese sourced GPS extender, the GPS G2 web user interface was reporting that a GPS signal was not found. Initially we attributed this to errors in setting up the extender.
However when we tried to update our settings with a static GPS position just to try it out we received a “Failed to store” error message. And by using the browser debugging tools we could see a lot of 500 error messages. At that time we had to leave and hence was unable to restart the system to see if that solved the issue.
Due to the current Pandemic we are restricted in how much we can be at the office and while we are waiting to be able to test out more, I’m posting here in the hope that others might be able to help us out if this is a known issue/has happened with others.
Also: have anyone had success using cabled GPS extenders? We are 10-15m from the nearest window and in worst case scenario we hope to be able to get a GPS lock on the main unit and the U1 placed next to the window and then move them to the pool after initial GPS lock has been acquired.
