@John Dennings

In good environment the coordinates can be ~1-2cm accurate. 

RTK won't work in a hangar with a repeater.

Just wondering, i thought piksi is doing the same thing as this reach. What would be the difference between the two?

Hi, I am a surveyor with a fair amount of GNSS experience and I am curious as to how you achieve cm accuracy with only L1.  Is the data from the Reach post processed?  Do you have plans for multi frequency receivers and antennas?  Thanks for your response.

Selling an extra Emlid Reach RTK Kit if anyone is interested.  Only used for bench testing and setup...never flown!
