    the duration depends on the precision parameter you have set in meters in the base module. It will also depend on the clear sky conditions, the eventual reflections from nearby buildings, trees in the way, etc. At minimum it should be a couple of minutes.

  • How long is the survey-in time for the base station to get a precise enough position in order to transmit corrections?
