Emlid Reach RS+ Product Review
The most user-friendly software for data collection that is available both for Android and iOS. Supports thousands of coordinate systems and is translated into multiple languages. With ReachView 3, 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.
save points, and export data to CSV
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.
Coordinate systems based on
WGS84, NAD83, GDA2020, and others
find point’s position 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.
Logging in RINEX:
record raw data, position, and base correction logs
Record raw data, position and base correction logs. Point collection and 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.
of logging at 1 Hz
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 can 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.

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 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
