Trimble VRS Now H-Star - 18/07/2008

Trimble has introduced its VRS Now H-Star service. This service provides instant access to H-Star corrections throughout Germany, Great Britain, and 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 at the job site.

By accessing proven Trimble VRS technology, subscribers can correct data in the field without setting up base stations, and there is no need for post processing data. Mapping and GIS professionals with the Trimble H-Star compatible GPS receivers-the GeoXH 2008 series handheld receiver or GPS Pathfinder ProXRT receiver-can take advantage of the service.


Teaming the GPS Pathfinder ProXRT receiver with the Trimble Nomad series of handhelds (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 a minimal hardware investment. Users can also install the GLONASS option, which increases the number of GNSS satellites that can be accessed.
