This is the new and improved Reach RS+ RTK GNSS receiver from Emlid that has to be experienced to be believed. This is an ingenious, rugged, precise and yet affordable RTK GNSS receiver that is ever-ready to do surveying, mapping and data collection with a smart and easy user experience.
So what’s new with the Reach RS+? The main difference is in the processor. It has all the same functionalities that we know and love from the Reach RS but with improved hardware. It also now had 8GB of storage rather than 2GB…
- Reliably tracks GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS and SBAS satellites.
- Update rate up to 14Hz for GPS, up to 5Hz for GNSS. Built-in IMU and compass.
- High capacity LiFePo4 battery and easy USB charging ensure that you would never run out of juice on a mission.
- RINEX logs and solution tracks are stored in internal memory and easily accessed from the ReachView app.
- 30 hours battery life
- 8GB internal storage
Surveying with ReachView
The most user-friendly software for data collection that is available both for Android and iOS. With ReachView, you can collect and stake out points and control all the features of Reach receivers, such as setting up a base station, logging RINEX data, and configuring NMEA output.
Point collection: create projects, save points, and export in industry standard formats
Record each position as a point with centimeter-precise coordinates. Export projects and open them in GIS or CAD software like AutoCAD, ArcGIS, QGIS, and others.
Formats: DXF, CSV, GeoJSON, ESRI Shapefile
Stakeout: Find the position of points on the ground
Stakeout is used to find exact physical locations of points. They can be collected in ReachView or imported from other CAD or GIS software.
The stakeout process in ReachView has two steps: map view and bulls-eye. Map’s purpose is to help you navigate to points on long distances. When you get closer than 40 cm to the point, bulls-eye turns on to make it easier for you to visually match the receiver and point.
Formats: CSV, DXF and GeoJSONs
Logging in RINEX: record raw data, position, and base correction logs
Record raw data, position and base correction logs. Point collection and the recording of RAW data are independent processes and can be used simultaneously. ReachView has a simple and intuitive interface for logging configuration and control.
We provide our version of RTKLib for PPK. It’s free and can be downloaded from our docs.
8GB Storage = 80+ days of logging at 1 Hz
Real-time position streaming in NMEA
Reach provides data in standard NMEA that is used by most GIS apps. Simply connect your device to Reach over Bluetooth or with a cable, and turn on “Position output” in ReachView.
Reach can turn on and off automatically
Reach is able turn on and off in sync with an external battery connected over RS-232. This helps when the power button is hard to reach, for example, if the receiver is placed on the roof of a tractor.

Position streaming Interfaces
RS-232, TCP, Bluetooth
NTRIP or another Reach as a base station
Reach RS+ needs a base station as a source of corrections. That’s a requirement for centimeter accuracy in RTK and PPK. The base might be either another Reach RS+ receiver or an NTRIP service. VRS is also supported.
Reach RS+ works seamlessly with other Reach receivers over any link.
Input and output corrections
TCP, LoRa, Bluetooth, RS-232, NTRIP
Max distance from a base
Up to 10 km in RTK 20 km in PPK
Reach RS+ is designed for harsh conditions. Dense forests, mountains, frost, heat and water, Reach can handle it all
Can be held 1 meter deep under water for half an hour.
Working temperature. Isn’t afraid of either heat or cold.
Industrial LiFePO4 battery that doesn’t die on cold. Charges over USB from a powerbank.
