Key features

The Emlid Reach RX is the most easy to use GNSS receiver we every tried. You only have to turn it on and you can land survey with it. There is no configuration needed, like with his big brother the Emlid Reach RS2+.

Taking out all the extra possibilities by Emlid with this GNSS receiver made this product unique. It is the must have for everyone that wants to start land surveying, but that does not know enough to configure a complete GNSS receiver.

Another key feature is the size of this GNSS reeiver. It is very small. You can put it in a pocket of your jeans. You can take it with you anywhere without needing a big bag.

Since it is small it is also very light. When you want to land survey a complete day, which you can with this GNSS receiver, then it is not heavy to use. Even when you are not used to land survey every day then you will be able to land survey with this light and small GNSS receiver.

The size makes it also easy to land survey close against walls and fences.

Further and also very important is that the Emlid Reach RX is engineered to be tough. It will work in the most challenging conditions.


The GNSS receiver comes in a nice box with a USB-C cable.

The Emlid Reach RX is a professional GNSS receiver. It is used by land surveyors and other people that need accurate positions in the field. When used in a proper way, like with Apglos Survey Wizard, and in combination with an RTK correction network an accuracy of less than 1 cm can be acquired.

There are not many GNSS receiver that can be used with software on iOS. But the Emlid Reach RX can be used in combination with an Apple iPhone or an Apple iPad. The reason for this is that the Emlid Reach RX has a BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) module. This makes it possible for the Emlid reach RX to communicate with Apple devices. The best app to use the Emlid Reach RX on iOS is Apglos Survey Wizard.

The Emlid Reach RX and the Emlid Reach RS2+ are two professional GNSS receivers. They can both be used with good results in the field. There is a difference though. The Emlid Reach RX is excellent for everyone that starts to land survey because there are no settings that you have to worry about. So it is plug and play, like you can see in the video below.


The Emlid Reach RS2+ has more possibilities. It has a radio inside, so it can communicate with other GNSS receivers. Also it has a SIM card slot, so it can communicate with the internet for for example RTK corrections.
So if you want more grip on your settings than the Emlid Reach RX is for you. If you want to start to land survey quick than the Emlid Reach RX is a great choice.

The nice thing is that you don’t have to set up the Emlid Reach RX. You can open the box and start land surveying. It will work right away with Apglos Survey Wizard on iOS or Android. There is no need for any configuration.

The Emlid Reach RX comes with a USB-C cable. The USB-C can be plugged into the Emlid Reach RX GNSS receiver. The other side of the USB-C cable can be connected with an adapter (which is not included in this product) to a socket. When both sides are connected the Emlid Reach RX will be charged. If you charge this GNSS receiver for 1 hour you will be able to work with the Emlid Reach RX for a full day. But if that is not enough or if you forgot to charge the Emlid Reach RX than you can always charge the Emlid Reach RX in the field with the USB-C cable and a power bank.

It is important to know the antenna reference point of a GNSS receiver. If you work with the wrong antenna reference point than the measured heights of your surveying project will be incorrect. The antenna reference point you have to use with the Emlid Reach RX is 0.145 m. When you use the Emlid Reach RX with Apglos Survey Wizard and a 2.0 m GPS rod than you need to fill in 2.145 m for the antenna height.
