All orders placed before 2pm will be delivered the next day on overnight track and trace courier. Larger items will be sent on a two day service to the South Island. Please note rural addresses (RD) can take 1-3 days longer.




Gets a fix in seconds

Reach RS+ gets a fixed solution in just seconds and maintains robust performance even in challenging conditions. Centimeter accuracy can be achieved on distances up to 10 km in RTK, and 20 km in PPK mode.

GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and QZSS

PPP support

RINEX raw data logs are compatible with PPP services so you can now get centimeter-precise results in any place on Earth. Process RINEX files in an online service and get position with absolute accuracy.


Surveying with ReachView

The most user-friendly software for data collection that is available both for Android and iOS. With ReachView, 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.

Stakeout: Find points' 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.

Process of stakeout in ReachView has two steps: map view and bulls-eye. Map's purpose is to help you navigate to points on long distances. When you get closer than 40 cm to the point, bulls-eye turns on to make it easier for you to visually match receiver and point.

Formats: CSV, DXF and GeoJSONs


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.

8GB storage

80+ days of logging at 1 Hz

Real-time position 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 is able 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.


Compatible apps

MachineryGuide, AgriBus-Navi, Efarmer, Agripilot, and others


Position streaming

Interfaces RS-232, TCP, Bluetooth



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. Base might be either 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

Over 10 km in RTK
20 km in PPK

Reach RS+ is designed for harsh condistions. Mountains, frost, heat and water, Reach can handle them all
