Have gone through previous posts specifically “Emild & SouthPAN” and just like many others found it disappointing however with the Government pushing SouthPAN applications in industry and technology going forward quickly, I thought maybe an update or perhaps another request / user feedback makes some amazing work possible between Emlid and Geoscience Australia and AUS/NZ Government agents.
Small and medium companies like us, are continuously advised to contact manufacturers of our equipment - including DJI, Emlid, Leica, Trimble, etc. - and encourage them to use open-source and freely available positioning data and corrections under SBAS/SouthPAN L1&L5 frequencies.
Apparently some new smart phones including Google Pixel4/5, Samsung S20/21 and iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max receive both L1 & L5 signals and many tech companies are opting in - EXCLUDING Emlid so far I’m hoping Emlid might not need a hardware upgrade but perhaps just an optional software update - free or paid we don’t mind to pay for such services anyway - if the user has one of those smart phones that can receive corrections.
