Trimble Announces Real-Time Corrections Service for In-the-Field, High-Accuracy Mapping in Ireland and Northern Ireland

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) today announced the availability of high-accuracy, in-the-field mapping with its new Trimble(R) VRS Now(TM) H-Star(TM) service in Ireland and Northern Ireland. A subscription to the Trimble VRS Now H-Star service gives users working in utilities, local government, natural resources, and land management the ability to obtain real-time, decimeter level accurate positions consistently and directly at the job site. With instant access to H-Star corrections on demand, field workers can be more efficient and high-accuracy mapping projects can be up and running in minutes to increase productivity.

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.
