All-new Emlid Reach RX: pocket-sized RTK rover for $1599

We are excited to unveil a new product—Emlid Reach RX network rover. This is a high-performance multi-band RTK rover with a focus on simplicity. No configuration is required to start a job, simply enter the credentials for your corrections network (NTRIP), and you are ready for work. Reach RX fits in a pocket, and you can take it anywhere to survey with centimeter precision.

Uncompromising centimeter precision

Emlid Reach RX is a multi-band rover tracking GPS/QZSS, Galileo, GLONASS, and BeiDou. It’s designed for working with any network corrections (NTRIP) to provide centimeter-precise positioning.

If no network is available, you can create your own using Emlid Reach RS2 or RS2+ as a permanent base and the Emlid Caster to send RTK corrections. Emlid Caster makes it easy to deliver corrections to as many Reach RX rovers as you need.


Connect Reach RX to your network on your iOS or Android device

From the box to a FIX in under 60 seconds

Emlid Reach RX uses Bluetooth Low Energy to connect to ReachView 3. You don’t need to spend time learning the advanced settings—just enable the network credentials. If you work with the ReachView 3 app, it uses the Internet connection on your device to access the corrections stream and send it to Reach RX over Bluetooth.

Reach RX is designed to simplify your workflows and eliminates the chance of getting a wrong setup, as it doesn’t require any configuration. Now you can trust collecting and staking out points to your team members even with no in-person training.


Reach RX comes in handy for various applications

Rugged rover with a pocket-sized design

Small and lightweight
Emlid Reach RX has a completely new and incredibly compact design. The pocket-sized rover weighs just 250 grams. You can take Reach RX wherever you go—carry it in a backpack pocket or attach it to your clothing. We also recommend adding a foldable Emlid survey pole to your toolbox. With Reach RX, you can be ready to start a survey in a few seconds.

Powerful battery
The Reach RX battery gives you 16 hours of work on one charge, and even 30 minutes of charging provides four hours of battery life. The receiver comes with a USB Type-C cable and can charge from a power bank, USB wall charger, or a computer USB port.

Rugged enclosure
Reach RX features IP68 ingress protection. The connector is completely sealed and protected from water and dust with a silicone plug. The rover operates in cold winters and hot summers, with temperatures ranging from -20 to +65 °C (-4 to 149 °F).

Survey with the ReachView 3 app

Reach RX comes with the ReachView 3 app for iOS and Android. With ReachView 3, all you need to do is enter the network credentials for Reach RX, and you are all set for collecting or staking out points. Then you can also export and import survey data.

If you stick to another app, you can stream your positional information from Reach RX and continue gathering data for your project with a familiar interface.

Awesome!!! Can a pair be used as a BASE & ROVER?

Looks awesome!

No, it’s only a rover. It can only work with NTRIP over BLE right now.

Specs? Vibration patterns? In case it’s lost?

I loved!
Can it write raw data?

I think the idea here is “Network Rover”, for those who Ntrip always, and use there phone as the data collector and internet connection. Weighing 3.8x less than the RS2, and possibly less than the pole!

250g. Definitely weighs less than the pole, even than the 750g Emlid pole :slight_smile:

We ran one today on two projects today and it is easily the most intuitive GNSS I have come across. When combined with an RS2+ as a CORS you get free corrections for 40km and get +/- 0.05-0.10ft repeatability. We currently pay for 3 licenses at $2k/year pop so let’s just funnel that money back into the program…

And how does it behave with multipath?
Is the antenna the same (or similar) to the RS2?

So you would need two hotspots in order to get the RX and RS2 to communicate over Emlid Caster, correct? Is there a built-in sim card slot for the RX? I like the form factor and the low weight combined with the battery longevity of 16hrs and weighing only 250grams is amazing! If it only had tilt and GPS L5 capability! Also , it looks like the USB flap opens upward instead of downward? Seems like that would let it moisture/dirt possibly. Also would like to know if it collects raw logs as a static receiver.

This seize is great!
Is it possible to use raw data logs for ppk? Or ntrip only?

This rover is designed to simplify data collection workflows on sites with the cell network coverage. For PPK, Reach RS2+ is still a primary choice.

You don’t need a sim card or Wi-fi to work with Reach RX! That’s one of the coolest things, you can just set up NTRIP corrections in the ReachView 3 app. Reach RX will receive the corrections over Bluetooth from your smartphone.

Re. the silicone cover, it is sealed so the USB port is well protected from all the dirt.

Another awesome innovation from the Global leader in GNSS technology!!!
Please let us know if we are to expect an NTRIP base (CORS) version soon, so we can desist buying & using improvised M2 modules.
We would consider this very useful & practical. :grinning:

I so want that now instead of my RS2!

Does it collect static raw data?

I certainly like the idea of a slimmed down receive only rover especially so slim as this one!.. but at $3000 AUD vs $3800 AUD for an RS2+ it is not really a viable option with all the extra functions of the slightly more expensive unit.
Maybe if the price was around the $2000 AUD mark it would be a better option. The M2 kit with antenna and a 3D printed case and battery would be around $1200 AUD so this is certainly preferably if a slightly more arduous process at present.

It does not collect raw data. It is only an NTRIP client receiver for RTK.
