By accessing proven Trimble VRS(TM) technology, subscribers can correct data in the field without setting up base stations, and there is no need for post processing data. Mapping and Geographic Information System (GIS) professionals with the Trimble H-Star compatible GPS receivers - the GeoXH(TM) 2008 series handheld receiver or GPS Pathfinder(R) ProXRT receiver - can take advantage of the service.
"The GIS industry, particularly for the utilities as-built and asset management sectors, has been demanding ever increasing accuracies. The sub- meter requirement has quickly become the decimeter requirement for these applications, and real-time GPS measurements are an efficient way to compile and compare large quantities of geographically referenced data," said Pierre Desjardins, manager for Trimble's GNSS Infrastructure business area. "Users equipped only with an H-Star compatible GPS receiver, a cellular connection and a subscription to the Trimble service can overcome these challenges in the field by tapping into H-Star corrections."
In addition, teaming the GPS Pathfinder ProXRT receiver with the Trimble Nomad(TM) series of handhelds (800X, 800XC and 800XE models) removes the need for a separate phone. The Trimble Nomad handheld's integrated cellular modem allows users to connect directly from the handheld to the Trimble VRS Now H- Star service for optimal performance. With the GPS Pathfinder ProXRT receiver, users can also install the GLONASS option, which increases the number of GNSS satellites that can be accessed.
