The Emlid Reach RS2+ is a cost-effective and accurate GNSS receiver designed for both beginner and experienced surveyors. It can be integrated into your RTK workflow with DJI drones and be used to stake out your ground control points.

Straight out of the box, Emlid receivers are easy to use for your RTK, PPK and PPP needs. They can be set up as a base station over a known point, used as a rover via NTRIP. A base station and rover setup is also available over LoRa when using two emlid units.

The Reach RS2+ can obtain its corrections via NTRIP, Bluetooth or LoRa (when used with supported emlid gear), providing flexibility depending on the environment at hand.

Whether you are using it for drone mapping, ground control or other surveying needs, this cost-effective solution is a market disruptor at this price point.



Multi-band, centimetre-accurate GNSS receiver

The Emlid Reach RS2+ is a multi-band GNSS receiver which allows you to collect data with centimetre accuracy.

It has an LTE Modem, a baseline of up to 100km, an update rate of 10Hz and can be used in conjunction with the ReachView 3 app.

The RS2+ is an evolution of the popular Reach RS2 receiver. Key upgrades include:

  • LTE Modem: Reach RS2+ comes with a power-efficient global 4G LTE Modem. The Reach RS2 has a 3.5G HSPA modem.
  • Dual Diversity Antennas: Reach RS2 had one cellular antenna, but RS2+ features dual diversity LTE antennas for better cell reception.
  • 20+ Design Improvements: Based on field experience of Reach RS2, the RS2+ features more than 20 design improvements to ease your work in the field.

The Reach RS2+, which has 16GB of internal memory, works in RTK and PPK modes. Deploy the Reach RS2+ for surveying, mapping and navigation. It can be used for land surveying or drone mapping workflows. 

The Reach RS2+ is a powerful yet cost-effective solution, compared to other receivers on the market.




Key features for high-precision surveying

Achieve quality survey results with the Emlid Reach RS2+. Key features include:


Gets Fix In Seconds: Reach RS2+ gets fixed solution in just seconds and maintains robust performance even in challenging conditions. Centimetre accuracy can be achieved on distances over 60 km in RTK, and 100 km in PPK mode.

Built-in LTE Modem: Reach RS2+ features a power-efficient 4G LTE modem with global coverage. Now corrections can be accessed or broadcasted over NTRIP independently, without relying on an internet connection on your phone.

PPP Support: RINEX raw data logs are compatible with PPP services so now you can get centimetre-precise results in any place on Earth. Process RINEX files in an online service and get position with absolute accuracy. RINEX is logged at an update rate of up to 10Hz. Support for satellite navigation systems such as GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and QZSS.

Long Life: Up to 22 hours of autonomous work when logging data and up to 16 hours as a LTE rover, even in cold weather. Reach RS2+ can charge from a USB wall charger or on-the-go via a power bank over USB-C.




Collect data - no matter the weather

Engineered to be tough, compact and lightweight, the Emlid Reach RS2+ is designed to work in the most challenging environments.


Compact and Lightweight: Measuring 126 x 142 mm, the Reach RS2+ has a compact design, enabling it to be carried in a small bag. At 950g, it weighs less than a typical survey pole.

Weatherproof: Reach RS2+ has an IP67 rating. It is waterproof up to 1m depth and is also dustproof. All connectors are completely sealed and protected from water and dust with silicone plugs.

Built for Extreme Conditions: The Reach RS2+ has a working temperature of -20°С to 65°С, making it a reliable solution in hot and cold conditions.

Polycarbonate Body: Reach RS2+ is impact-resistant. Its body is made of polycarbonate, an extremely durable material that is used in bulletproof glass.




Real-time position, NTRIP, & Base Stations

The Emlid Reach RS2+ offers seamless connectivity:

Real-time Position: Reach provides data in standard NMEA that is used by most GIS apps. Connect your device to Reach over Bluetooth or with a cable, and turn on 'Position Output' in the ReachView 3 app.

Reach can turn on and off automatically, in sync with an external battery connected over RS-232.

  • Compatible Apps: FieldGenius for Android, ESRI Collector, QField. 
  • Position Streaming (interfaces): RS-232; TCP; Bluetooth.


NTRIP: Reach RS2+ needs a base station as a source of corrections. That’s a requirement for centimetre accuracy in RTK and PPK. The base can be another Reach RS2+ receiver or an NTRIP service. VRS is also supported.

Reach RS2+ works seamlessly with other Reach receivers over any link.

  • Input and Output Corrections (Interfaces): TCP; LoRa; Bluetooth; RS-232; NTRIP.
  • Formats: RTCM3.
  • Max distance from base: Over 60 km in RTK; 100 km in PPK; Any place on Earth with PPP.


Surveying with ReachView 3

ReachView 3 is an intuitive software for data collection. It is available for Android and iOS and is a powerful data collection software for Emlid Reach receivers.

ReachView 3 provides everything in one app: Collect and stake out points using your local coordinate system and control your Reach RS2+ unit. Set up a base station, log RINEX data, configure NMEA output and manage survey projects.

The ReachView 3 supports thousands of different coordinate systems worldwide. The selection is based on the EPSG and IGN registries. The ReachView 3 has a custom tool for manual coordinate system creation for areas without a predefined coordinate system.
