I am looking to purchase a trimble r10 or similar for several engineering projects where I require centimetre level accuracy topographic information to design engineering works. Some of these sites are in areas of poor cellphone signal so I wont be able to get accurate co ordinates at the time as the RTK facility wont operate. This isnt necessarily a problem for me as I dont need the completed survey till I get back to the office. Is it possible to do a survey in "static" mode and then post process to get the accuracy I require. I dont want the hassle of using a total station as I want to be able to do the surveys with one person. Also a local grid survey would be good enough for me, I dont require the precise national grid co ordinates, just so long as the survey is centimetre accurate to a local grid
