Configuring GPS 6500 Relay 400 MHz or 900 MHz through WebUI
1. Set the GPS 6500 to base mode.
a. Follow the link below to set GPS 6500 to
base mode: https://dealer.agleader.com/
kbp/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=1432
2. Scan for Base Station
a. With the GPS 6500 (Base Station) in the
desired mounting location, use the GPS 6500
WebUI to properly configure the base.
i. Open network connections on your WiFi enabled device (computer, tablet,
cellular device, etc.) and scan for
available Wi-Fi connections.
Figure 1
3. Connect to Relay Wi-Fi
a. Connect to “Relay_NMGxxxxxxxx” and enter the Wi-Fi
password on the back of the relay (Figure 1).
4. Access Relay through web browser
a. Once connected to the relay Wi-Fi, open internet
browser (Chrome or Safari recommended), type
“192.168.2.1” in the address bar, then enter.
i. This will take you to the Log in screen for
accessing the Relay WebUI.
5. Log into relay Web UI
a. Select the “password” icon to enter the relay
password (Figure 2). The default log in password is:
“password”
b. Select the “LOG IN” icon to log into the WebUI.
6. Function Bar Status
a. There are three function bars in the WebUI. These
function bars are color coded based on their status.
i. Position
ii. GNSS
iii. Radio
b. When all three function bars are green, the base is
configured and transmitting correction (see below).
Figure 2
7. Edit Function Bar Settings
a. On PC, select the function bar to configure settings.
b. On portable Wi-Fi enabled device, swipe to the right on the function bar.

8. Configure Position
a. Once logged into the WebUI, select the “Position” function
bar to see the status of the position settings.
b. The Position settings will have two tabs to choose from.
i. The “Auto” tab – For use when an auto-survey is
desired (Figure 3).
1. User will set this to allow for a time based
survey or an accuracy base survey.
a. Once the user selects “START,” the
base will survey until the selected
survey time or accuracy is met.
ii. The “Fixed” tab – For use when entering known base
location information (Figure 4).
1. User will enter previously surveyed/known
coordinates.
c. Once changes have been made, select “SAVE” for the
changes to take place. If “SAVE” is not selected, the all
GNSS settings will default back to the last saved values.
i. Select the back arrow in the top left corner to return
to the main WebUI main page.
9. Configure GNSS
a. Select the GNSS Function bar to see the status of GNSS
settings.
i. To access the GNSS settings, swipe to the right
(Figure 5).
1. “Correction Type” – Select/change the
correction data format.
2. “System Type” – Used to set the satellite
constellation. (Note: This should always be
set to “AUTO”)
3. “SBAS Control” –This will assist the base
Figure 3

when locating its position (Note: This should always be highlighted green).
4. “Elevation Mask” – Allows the user to set the
minimum elevation used when determining
position (should be left on the default settings).
ii. Once changes have been made, select “SAVE” for the
changes to take place. If “SAVE” is not selected, the all
GNSS settings will default back to the last saved
values.
10. Configure Radio
a. Select the Radio Function bar to see the status of Radio
settings.
i. To configure the Radio settings, swipe to the right
(Figure 6).
ii. For Relay 400 MHz (Figure 6):
1. “Transmitter State” – Green - Means the radio
is set to transmit. White – Means the radio is
Figure 5
not set to transmit.
2. “Channel Spacing” – Allows user to set the
channel spacing for the 400 Mhz radio.
3. “Frequency” – Allows user to set the
designated frequency for operation.
4. “Tx Power” – Allow the user to set the
transmitting power of the radio. (Note: For best
results over long baseline distances, set TX
Power to the 1000mW max setting).
5. “FEC” (Forward Error Correction) - This should
always be left in the green state.
6. “Compatibility” – Allows the user to select the
radio specific compatibility.
7. Once changes have been made, select “SAVE”
for the changes to take place. If “SAVE” is not
selected, the all GNSS settings will default
back to the last saved values.
8. Return to the WebUI main page by selecting
Figure 6
the back arrow in the top left.
iii. For Relay 900 MHz (not pictured):
1. “Transmitter State” – Green - Mean the radio is set to transmit. White – Means
the radio is not set to transmit.
2. Channel Number – Select channel to broadcast on.
3. “Tx Power” – Allow the user to set the transmitting power of the radio. (Note:
For best results over long baseline distances, set TX Power to the 1000mW
max setting).
4. Once changes have been made, select “SAVE” for the changes to take place. If
“SAVE” is not selected, the all GNSS settings will default back to the last saved
values.
5. Return to the WebUI main page by selecting
the back arrow in the top left corner of the
page.
11. Confirm Function bar status.
a. The color of each Function bar will tell the user what its status
is (see “Function Bar Status by Color” above).
i. If all three function bars are colored Green, the base is
set up properly, transmitting corrections, and ready for
use (see function bar color status above in step 7).
12. Log out
a. When configuration is complete, or when leaving the GPS
6500 Base, the user must log out of the WebUI. If user closes
the internet browser without logging out, unintended base
station behavior may occur.
i. To log out of the WebUI, from any page, select the
“Logout” icon in the lower right corner of the page
(Figure 7).
ii. Confirm log out by selecting “LOG OUT” (Figure 8). This
