Geo 7X Handhelds Offer More Flexibility for Geospatial Professionals to Achieve Real-Time, Centimeter-Level Accuracy WorldwideLAS VEGAS, Nov. 3, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that its RTX™ technology-based correction services—Trimble® CenterPoint® RTX™, Trimble RangePoint™ RTX, and the new Trimble ViewPoint RTX—will be available for Trimble Geo 7X handhelds. Trimble RTX technology provides compatible Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers with correction services that significantly improve accuracy and reliability in obtaining positions worldwide. Geospatial professionals now have more flexibility to achieve the accuracy required by their highly mobile workflows in real-time, without being tied to a base station or local VRS™ network.
The announcement was made at Trimble Dimensions.
Available worldwide through an IP connection where cellular communication is available, Trimble RTX offers geospatial professionals greater flexibility in where and when they are able to work. Operational efficiency and productivity in the field is improved by delivering real-time DGNSS corrections directly to the Trimble Geo 7X handheld. Field challenges, such as obstructed satellites and inaccessible locations, are also minimized with Trimble Floodlight™ and Trimble Flightwave™ technology options for the Trimble Geo7X. The handheld solution is ideal for a variety of industries—such as utility companies, municipalities, and environmental management agencies—in which workers are highly mobile and require a reliable, flexible data collection and asset management solution.
"We have eliminated the complexities of managing multiple correction sources across a large geographically dispersed project or organization," said Alain Samaha, business area director of GIS and Software for Trimble's Geospatial Division. "By offering RTX-based correction services, we simplify their work and deliver the accuracy that our customers require."
A choice of RTX correction services ranging from 4 centimeters to submeter-level horizontal accuracies is available. Customers can choose the appropriate Geo 7X handheld configuration with the RTX-based correction service that meets the accuracy level and capability required for their job.
Trimble CenterPoint RTX, Trimble RangePoint RTX, and Trimble ViewPoint RTX subscriptions are expected to be available to purchase for use with the Geo 7X in late November 2014. RTX correction service subscriptions can be ordered through Trimble's Positioning Services Division. To learn more, go to: www.trimble.com/positioning-services/mgis.
The Geo 7X handheld and supporting software are available now through Trimble's GIS Distribution Channel. To learn more, go to: www.trimble.com/geo7.
About Trimble RTX Technology
The patent-pending Trimble RTX (Real Time eXtended) is a high-accuracy GNSS correction technology delivering repeatable centimeter level positions worldwide. A user of RTX-based solutions no longer needs traditional base stations or costly cellular data plans to achieve high accuracy positioning. Combining real-time data with innovative positioning and compression algorithms, Trimble RTX utilizes an established global reference station network along with satellite orbit and clock information to compute high accuracy positions. The real-time technology is available via satellite or IP delivery across most of the world. In addition, a free RTX-based post-processing service is available.
