I have two ig3 receivers, but have only used one of them ONCE (long story).

On the other hand, I have a client that has two of them, and he sends me his RINEX files as he collects them. Over the last couple of years, I have probably processed hundreds of files (5 hour nominal) through OPUS_S and  a few through OPUS_Projects as well.

The results have been EXCELLENT, and I highly recommend them.

Just my 2-bits

Are you interested in offloading them? Or recommending them? Or I guess, both?

Recommending.

I have no desire to "unload" mine, I hope to have enough time next year to start using them.

Bought a couple from Igage. It's cheap, works simply and Mark and John provides excellent support

@StLSurveyor, Call me and I send you a new iG4 and you can try it out for a week. If it does not work out, we will pay the return shipping.

If you have used OPUS much, take a moment to read the OPUS Best Practices section, starting on page 36, of this [ User Manual ]. It will help with expectations.

On comparing iG3s to iG4 there really is not much difference from the OPUS side, however the iG4 does have lower power consumption so the battery lasts longer. Usually, because of increasing channel counts, the power consumption goes up; so this is nice. (This device was revised because we consumed all of the available OEM engines that were in the iG3s.)

Also, (Easter Egg Alert) the iG4 is not a bad DCI Network Rover. Hint: use the iG3s drivers in SurvCE, manually choose the antenna, works best with RTCM32.

With the price of the igage receivers so reasonable, and the great support from Mark, you can't go wrong buying new.
