I thought about getting one, but opted for a slightly used South Galaxy G1. Very similar to the Trimble R10. It processes GPS L5 which was key for me. I'm not sure the Reach RS2 does?

I would like to know how this works out for you as well. I have been looking at this, not so much as a daily driver, but for those little quick things, and GCPs for drone work.

I would like to know how well it connects to WDS & Trimble network.

It will not connect to AllTerra Central's (Formerly WDS) RTKNET. The way that the network was set up originally was to be a "Trimble only" network.  As of right now, if you are capable of consuming CMRp, there is a chance you would be able to log on, but you would only get GPS corrections.  You would not receive GLONASS, Galileo, etc. corrections.

You may be able to connect to Trimble's VRSNow or RTX Fast, but you will need to keep in mind that the corrections are broadcast in a worldwide projection and not NAD83(2011).  You will have to define in your data collector a transformation to get you from (I believe) IGS 08 (2014 Epoch) back to NAD83(2011) or your coordinates will not match by about a meter with anything you have done previously using RTKNET.

So I received my RS2 yesterday and did some testing. I got only 1 unit for testing but could not do a baseline static because my other units are on project sites. 

Did a fast static observation and got the following RINEX file:

I have only used Sokkia & Topcon and the occational South brands and as far as I can remember time stamps are rounded off to the

nearest second. I am not sure if after you processed the data (kinematic) if the software will automatically round it off to the nearest

second in its computation. I usually process my data in kinematic mode for bathymetry survey to match each rover position with the

time stamp from the echo sounder.  

Question : has anyone encountered RINEX files with decimal seconds part (see highlighted text) for the time component?
