Meet Reach RS: field-ready RTK GNSS receiver


Check this out…

@HELImetrex Point collection is coming to ReachView, but meanwhile you can use apps like Mobile Topographer Pro on Android.

That is great news.

Any chance ReachView would then allow custom base maps? I purchased mobile topographer, which is OK, but still lacks some of the features like this that I would really like. I would like to be able to use base maps produced by our reach-equipped drone to be able to serve as higher resolution maps when collecting terrestrial points with an RS. I have been able to make this work with SurvPC on a PC tablet in the past, but was disappointed that it is not, I think, possible in any android app.

Would a MapBox layer be sufficient for your needs?

(Austin Hill) #63

Yes, as long as it could be used offline?

I’m ashamed to say that moving away from the DIY plastic base and rover containers

I ended up making my own small vacuum forming table to make my rover cover!

This looks nice. Are the radios compatible with any we are using now ie. 3dr900 or rfd900+ etc.?
Keep up the good work.

@jmcarthur 3DR\RFD are not compatible with the integrated LoRa radio because of the different modulation LoRa uses, but they still can be used when connected to the USB OTG or RS232 ports.

ReachView beta v2.2.5

Awesome! I’d like to get it ASAP.
Can I use it in Japan ?(Because of Japanese Law about radio waves is quite strict…)

Just pre-ordered two of these Reach RS systems, Can’t wait to see them!!

(Igor Vereninov) #69

@Kaneda_Akihiro I believe that 916.7 - 923.5 MHz is allowed in Japan and you can tune the radio in Reach RS to this frequency.

@HELImetrex Thank you for pre-ordering!

(Kaneda Akihiro) #70

Thank you for quick reply!
Unfortunately, we haven’t allowed to use a 900MHz band for ISM.
We can only 2.4GHz band and certification of conformance to technical standards in Japan…It’s non-sence…

But, I’d like to use it by external wifi or BT module which have the Japanese certification.

Thank you!

@Kaneda_Akihiro I have read in multiple sources that 916.7-923.5 MHz is available
for unlicensed use up to 0.5 W EIRP. Even Softbank mentions on the press-release here, that they will roll out LoRa network in unlicensed 920 MHz band in Japan.

(Kaneda Akihiro) #72

Thank you Igor,
I’m glad to see your good information.
I’ll buy it and try in next April!

Can Reach RS act as a base for any dji drone? How accurate?

How does it achieve 50mm vertical accuracy with only L1?

Is there a limit to how many one person can order?

(12alwyn34) #74

Hi im new to rtk. Want to fit a system on my tractor, what would I need?

(Andrew Yushkevich) #75


You could read this thread :slight_smile:

(Valentin) #76

Can’t wait to see some LoRa on your guys store! Any approximated date?

(Freidoon Hedayati) #77

From last week i am wondering if it is possible to make such a good gear with this price?
Best regards

(Rgillinder) #78

Hi Emlid Team,
Just wondered when the Reach RS pre orders maybe shipped?

(Pvargues) #79

I have already received my reach rs. First test was good but had lots of problems to get fix. After that when fixed ar validation was in about 3.5 till 4. Im not sure why im not getting fix and a better ar validation. Any sugestions about some settings or masks to improve it?

Anyway the reach rs looks great and works perfect with reachview app. Well done emlid.

Thanks a lot
