I'm hoping to get a (relatively) low-cost Emlid GNSS specifically a Reach+ - the agent here tells me I can use the Emlid app on my mobile phone acting as the RTK remote - this is looking like US$800. The main job I'd be using this for would be street tree surveys and also native forest surveys - I work alone so like you need something like a robotic theodolite, but I'd rather avoid the cost of one of those.


I've found the majority of lower-cost solutions are just marketing hype to shift product but they are ineffective at best.
