UNI-GR1 First Time Set-Up

First-time setup

You have just received your brand-new UNI-GR1! Congratulations. Setting up your receiver by yourself might seem challenging, but it is not. We gladly offer you a helping hand. We do that with this First-time setup web page, and with our ‘How do I set-up the UNI-GR1 for the first time?‘ article.

On this page, you’ll find a complete tutorial where our colleague Tommy helps you set-up and survey easily. We have added some articles from our comprehensive knowledge base to help you further and if you do have any (other) questions left, feel free to send your question to UNI-Support by filling in the ticket form at the bottom of this page.

  1. How do I set up Wifi and make an internet connection?

Start from scratch, the icons

Besides reading our ‘ How do I set-up the UNI-GR1 for the first time?‘ article, knowing what every icon in UNI-Connect represents, will help you tremendously. You’ll memorize the steps and improve on speed, repeat settings for a new point, or quickly check for a fix. As you see in the picture below, we have numbered each icon in UNI-Connect. Scroll a bit down to see what they represent.
