SmartNet NA has officially deprecated our RTCM 2.x and CMR/CMR+ correction services (except for DGNSS / DGPS applications). This was done to remove support of legacy correction formats that limit customers to GPS only corrections. By removing support of the legacy correction formats, SmartNet hopes to reduce the confusion customers typically experience when non-GPS satellites begin to drop out of their RTK solutions when connecting to non-GNSS correction streams.
With the launch of our GNSS corrections in May 2017, RTCM 3.2 MSM became available to support all new GNSS satellites and signals and RTCM 3.1 became the standard GPS and GLONASS correction format.
Customers should migrate to a more current correction format that supports at a minimum of GPS and GLONASS corrections - RTCM 3.1 or a modern correction format that fully support full GNSS corrections - RTCM 3.2 MSM.
