Added by James T

I received the std kit + the lite kit (for use as the rover) less than a week ago. Not being that conversant with RTK in general it took me a couple of days to get my head around the configuration of the devices. I have to say though that when I ran into a couple of difficulties, support from Polaris was excellent....typically replying within an hour or less with detailed advice, even at the weekend.

I now have a working system that is giving me ~1cm accuracy (including a wireless link between base and rover) within a week and at an unprecedented price!

Thank you Polaris!
