Emlid Reach RS: field-ready RTK GNSS receiver for only $699


Hey everyone!

Emlid team is proud to present Reach RS - ruggedized, battery-powered RTK GNSS receiver. It enables centimeter accurate positioning for survey, mapping, agriculture and drones once again changing our perception of the equipment cost.

For laying out GCPs, or other types of survey work two Reach RS units operate together, one in base and another in rover mode. Reach RS is also seamlessly compatible with already available Reach module - compact and lightweight solution for drones with ability to integrate with autopilots for navigation and cameras for photo geotagging.


With an integrated high performance dual-feed antenna mounted on a large ground plane Reach RS is able to reliably track GPS, Glonass, Beidou, Galileo, QZSS and SBAS satellites.


The receiver is packed with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, RS232. It is able to access NTRIP corrections, stream data to the cloud and fetch software updates. In remote areas Reach RS units can communicate via integrated LoRa radios giving you a reliable correction link on distances up to 8 kilometers. Reach RS is a seamless addition to your existing equipment thanks RTCM and RINEX support. 


Reach RS comes with a ReachView web app that works on any device with a browser and does not require an internet connection. Easily configure settings, record and download RINEX logs, view status, satellite signal strength, captured events and your location on a map. 2 gigabytes of internal storage are available for raw data RINEX logs and solution tracks which can be easily accessed from the ReachView app.

With IP67 rating and rugged polycarbonate enclosure Reach RS is ready for outdoor work. The receiver weighs only 700 grams and is just 145 millimeters wide making it one of the smallest and lightest RTK units available.

  • I'm guessing that this is based on uBlox hardware.  If so, is it compatible with the M8P devices?  What I'd like to be able to do is pass the RTCM3 messages over my own network to a rover with M8P hardware in it rather than use a separate radio link.  Is this possible?  Can you read the uBlox sentences?

  • Awesome! Its great to see this evolution with opensource hardware. 

    Now waiting for more compatible apps to debunk high end and overpriced companies.

  • Really sleek, congratulations

  • Congratulation Emlid people !

    You really move the lines in the GNSS positioning world. Geodesy is now made affordable.
