EMLID recently released a field ready low cost RTK receiver. EMLID website says it's ready for surveying, mapping, monitoring & robotics. One receiver price only $799. 

Satellite Tracking:

BeiDou B1, Galileo E1, SBAS
72 tracking channels, IMU
14Hz GPS / 5Hz GNSS


Static: 5mm+1ppm
PPK: 7mm+1ppm
RTK: 7mm+1ppm
Vertical is 2×horizontal

I'm looking for a cost effective, yet survey grade GNSS receiver.

Can anyone share with me more about this product?

We need to use for topographic surveys (Position & Elevation required)

Here are the weblinks,

Sure! Reach RS takes raw data from m8t and uses Emlid's version of rtklib to calculate precise position. 


A recent study on low-cost receivers including the Reach. 

Anybody here has tried u-blox ZED-F9P? Seems to be solving all issues of M8P.

Hi Josep,

Reach RS doesn't use M8P.

May I ask what kind of issues do you mean? 

Hi Dmitriy,

Oh OK I didn't know you were not using M8P. With issues from M8P I mean as described by u-blox in a webinar about single band like NEO-M8P vs dual band like ZED-F9P: long time to first rtk fix, relatively easy loss of rtk fix under dynamic conditions, etc.

But ok I guess it's not exactly the same with your product. Thanks for highlighting it!

GEO Satlab has more ch8eaper instrunments and very wide range of solutions if you want. Just visit web page to check out. If any one from NEPAL you can contact me for pricings. 

Hi...as per my knowledge Reach RS doesn't come with a mobile 3G modem but does have a UHF module. When I asked they said about possible centimetre RTK with another Reach RS base receiver which is low cost than CORS subscription. I have observed lot of users in the forum are researches.
