  • $599.00 USD

Navisys GR-903 is a RTK GNSS receiver offering centimeter-level positioning accuracy, ideal for autonomous driving, navigation, data logging, and other applications that require clear sky visibility. This receiver is user-friendly, with simple USB connectivity for computers and Bluetooth capability for seamless integration with GIS/GPS applications on Android devices.

Equipped with the advanced u-blox ZED-F9P engine and a high-end antenna, the GR-903 supports dual-band (L1/L2) frequencies and a wide range of satellite constellations (GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU, GALILEO, QZSS, and SBAS). Its RTK technology leverages all visible satellites, ensuring precise navigation solutions when processed with correction data.

Flexibly designed to function as either a base or a rover, the GR-903 adapts to various operational needs. In its base mode, it generates continuous RTCM 3.3 correction data, while as a rover, it processes this data to provide real-time, centimeter-level positioning.

A distinctive feature of the GR-903 is its Moving Baseline (MB) capability, which allows both base and rover components to remain mobile while maintaining accurate positional calculations. This feature is particularly beneficial for dynamic applications such as UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) tracking and attitude sensing in moving vehicles or equipment, where precise relative positioning is crucial.

The GR-903 is fully configurable via Ublox U-center software and is compatible with multiple operating systems, including Android, Linux, and Windows. Its support for Windows location sensor is a standout feature, setting it apart from many other RTK GNSS receivers.

The GR-903 comes with the SPPRTK Android app.

This app transforms the GR-903 into a versatile tool, serving as:

a. An RTK GNSS data logger,

b. A GNSS receiver with centimeter-level accuracy,

c. And a portable RTK Base Station.

What is main difference between a RTK GNSS receiver and a traditional GNSS receiver?

The main difference is RTK GNSS takes in the correction stream, but traditional GNSS doesn't.

RTK is short for real time kinematics. A RTK capable GNSS receiver takes in the normal signals from the Global Navigation Satellite Systems along with a correction stream to achieve 1cm positional accuracy. GNSS includes satellites from GPS (USA), GLONASS (Russia), Beidou (China), and Galileo (Europe). On top of these signals an RTK receiver takes in an RTCM correction stream and then calculates your location with 1cm accuracy in real time.  

RTK is a technique used to improve the accuracy of a GNSS receiver. Traditional GNSS receivers, like the one in a smartphone, could only determine the position with 2-4 meters (7-13 feet) accuracy. RTK can give you centi-meter accuracy.


Why can RTK GNSS achieve so much better accuracy than standalone GNSS receivers?

GNSS receivers measure how long it takes for a signal to travel from a satellite to the receiver. Transmitted signals travel through the ionosphere and atmosphere and are slowed down and perturbed on the way. For example, travel time on a cloudy day and in clear sky conditions would be different. That is why it is difficult for a standalone receiver to precisely determine its position. 

RTK(Real Time Kinematic) technology solves this issue by using correction services. In the RTK method, a user receiver gets correction data from a single base station or from a correction service from Internet. It then uses this data to eliminate most of the GNSS errors. RTK is based on the principle that the base station and the user receiver are located close together (maximum 40 km or 25 miles apart) and therefore “see” the same errors. For example, since the ionospheric delays are similar for both the user and the reference station, they can be cancelled out of the solution, allowing higher accuracy.

Which correction services do you recommend for GR-903?

We highly suggest the GR-9028 Portable RTK Base for your very own NTRIP correction service. It works perfectly with the GR-903 RTK Rover to give you a complete RTK solution. Set up quickly, flexible NTRIP caster mount point, and easily deploy it near your rovers for super accurate correction data. This will totally revolutionize your RTK needs. See it here and gain control of your RTK solution!

Other than GR-9028, there are many correction services publicly available. Free of charge or by a small fee. They share correction data over the Internet. This technology is called NTRIP.  NTRIP is a good option for areas with 3G/4G LTE/5G network coverage and a vast network of NTRIP bases nearby. 

Below are the NTRIP correction service sources for your reference: 

Rtk2go (free service, world wide coverage)
UNAVCO (free service, US coverage)

Which NTRIP client do you recommend for GR-903?

We recommend Lefebure NTRIP Client.

Actually, most NTRIP clients in the market are capable. For example, the Ntrip client in ublox U-center.

Below is the screenshot of the Windows version of Lefebure NTRIP Client with "RTK FIXED".

Do you have a sample setup of U-Center NTRIP client?

Yes, please see the below screenshot.
