Issue Connecting to SP80 Receiver Using R-Series Driver

I am using the Xamarin TPSDK for Catalyst version 2020.0.82.19504 to connect to Trimble and Spectra Precision receivers. Using the R-Series driver I am successfully connecting to Trimble R-Series receivers in our mobile app and pulling in all the expected GNSS observations. However, as referenced in the answer in this post Trimble Receiver Naming Convention, I should be able to use the R-Series driver to connect to Spectra Precision devices. Currently I am unable to make the connection to the SP80 receiver I have which is running firmware version 3.46. When I go to connect I get an exception saying "Could not connect, the receiver is not supported (1)". Below is a snippet from the log file generated from our app.

TrimbleCatalystManagerDroid.connectToTrimbleSensor:  Could not connect, the receiver is not supported (1)


Additionally, when I try to connect to the SP80 in Trimble Mobile Manager using the R-Series driver the same issue happens (I can make the connection using the Spectra Precision driver).


I am not sure if maybe this is something wrong with my receiver setup or if maybe I am misunderstanding how to use the R-Series driver to connect to the SP80.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
