RS+ and RS2

Hello! I want to find out an information about what is difference between RS+ and RS2.

RS+ is L1 only, holds a shorter baseline, And takes longer to fix.

The RS2 is L1/L2, can work on a 100km baseline, and fixes in seconds.

If you can get the RS2, its a real nice unit.


Hi Giorgi,

Agree with @PotatoFarmer: the main difference between the units is that Reach RS2 is a multi-band receiver and Reach RS+ is a single-band receiver. It leads to a number of differences performance-wise:

  • Reach RS2 maintains stable performance even in somewhat challenging conditions while Reach RS+ requires a clear sky view

  • Reach RS2 obtains the first Fix in a matter of a few seconds while Reach RS+ needs a couple of minutes

  • Reach RS2 provides longer baselines (up to 60 km in RTK and 100 km in PPK)

Iā€™d suggest checking out our Single-band vs Multi-band guide. There we describe these differences in detail.

Thank you! Everything is clear
