Emlid Reach RS2 GNSS Receiver – Too Good to Be True? Interview with a Professional Surveyor & GNSS Expert

GNSS receivers are one of the most vital tools at a surveyor’s disposal. They speed up surveys and provide much-needed accuracy to the data. So as a firm that conducts many surveys, we can never really have enough GNSS receivers, but this posed a challenge— most industry-leading GNSS receivers are pretty expensive. The price of these receivers can be rationalized, they do provide accuracy up to the mm, but when you’re doing land parcel surveys, earthwork etc., you don’t really need this high accuracy. To address this, the minds at Emlid came out with the Emlid Reach RS2, a multi-band RTK GNSS receiver.
