Geode GNS3 GNSS Receiver

Introducing the next generation Geode™ GNS3 GNSS receiver. The Geode GNS3 is a truly scalable receiver. With different accuracy options, including support for RTK, this scalable platform allows users to purchase the level of accuracy they need now while having the option to increase accuracy in the future.



Looking for a simple and scalable sub-meter, sub-foot, decimeter, or centimeter GNSS solution at an affordable price? With the Geode GNS3 GNSS receiver from Juniper Systems, you can easily collect real-time GNSS data without the huge price tag or complexity of other precision receivers.

Designed with versatility in mind, the Geode GNS3 works well with with most Apple®, Windows®, and Android™ devices. An integrated antenna makes messy cables a thing of the past, yet still has an external antenna port if it’s needed. Take the Geode with you mounted on a pole, in a pack, or held in your hand to collect real-time precision GNSS data wherever the job takes you.

With the addition of the Hemisphere GNSS Athena RTK Engine and an optional RTK activation, the Geode can now deliver two-centimeter accuracy, through the use of network RTK service providers that are available worldwide. This allows Geode to be used in cases that require certain standards or accuracy requirements, such as meeting the suggestions of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and their 38-22 and 75-22 publications for GNSS accuracy.

The RTK license activation can be included at time of purchase of a multi-frequency enabled Geode GNS3M; or added at any time in the future to an existing GNS3M receiver. Multi-frequency activation is required for RTK.
