Trimble VRS Now H-Star Service Coverage Available in Illinois and Iowa

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 24 /PRNewswire/ --

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today the availability of its Trimble(R) VRS Now(TM) H-Star(TM) service in northern Illinois and eastern Iowa. The service provides instant access to H-Star corrections and is already available in the state of Florida and across Denver's Front Range in Colorado. Outside the U.S., the service is available throughout Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Northern Ireland, and in the Madrid region of Spain. 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 receive real time corrected 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 or GPS Pathfinder(R) ProXRT receiver - can take advantage of the service.

With Bluetooth(R) technology, the GeoXH handheld offers a wireless connection to a Bluetooth-enabled cellular phone to receive real-time corrections from the VRS Now HHH-Star service. In addition, teaming the GPS Pathfinder ProXRT receiver with the Trimble Nomad(TM) 800GX, 800GXC, or 800GXE handhelds, removes the need for a separate phone. The integrated cellular modem option in the Trimble Nomad G series allows users to connect directly to the Trimble VRS Now H-Star service for optimal performance with a minimal hardware investment. With the GPS Pathfinder ProXRT receiver's, GLONASS option, users can increase the number of GNSS satellites that can be accessed.

"Utilities personnel and other asset management professionals are under increasing pressure to complete high-accuracy mapping projects more quickly and economically," said Pierre Desjardins, manager for Trimble's GNSS Infrastructure business area. "Users equipped only with a GPS receiver, a cellular connection and a subscription to the Trimble VRS Now service can overcome these challenges in the field by tapping into the new H-Star corrections."
