Found this:

You need either a continous internet connection, a second telemetry link or the standard telemetry link to transmit the correction signals to the Piksi rover.
(look at the mailing list link)

Instead of xbees you can also use a raspberry pi with a umts stick and tunnel the serial port down to the gcs.
Should be easy, but mention most umts sticks have no own ip adress.

I talked to those guys from swift nav some months ago, all is open source except the fpga design file.
They were thinking about a open fpga architecture, i have no clue what happened with this idea.

Building some would be possible, but expensive !

6 Layer board design, stm32f4, max 2769, spartan 6 lx fpga ... very good hot air soldering oven required

If anyone is interested, i attached the BOM for the hardware revision v2.3.1

This looks really interesting. However as I see it requires continuous internet data connection. Is there a option to use cell phone modems on UAVs both for this and for general bidirectional communication with the ground station? Or, to gateway the RTCM messages from the ground station to the plane as part of the uplink data?
