Trimble RTX Mobile App Puts Satellite Correction Data in the Hands of Geospatial Users

ESSEN, Germany, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today the Trimble® RTX™ mobile app, built to serve end users across the survey, mapping and agriculture markets. Using Android smartphones and tablets, the Trimble RTX app enables the Trimble CenterPoint™ RTX post-processing service and the RangePoint™ RTX service activation portal to go mobile. The Trimble RTX app also offers a series of satellite utilities including a skyplot, information regarding satellite status, and signal-to-noise ratio graphs.

The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2013, the world's largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.

Powered by Trimble RTX technology, the GPS, GLONASS and QZSS enabled CenterPoint RTX post-processing service delivers better than 2 centimeter (1 inch) accuracy, and improves with larger observation files. With the Trimble RTX app, geospatial professionals using the CenterPoint RTX post-processing functionality can quickly and accurately establish their base station coordinates, reducing setup time to just minutes.

In this initial release, the CenterPoint RTX post-processing features include:

  • mobile device to GNSS receiver data transfer via Bluetooth; no need for USB keys or thumb drives
  • a library of global and regional coordinate systems where users can select the most appropriate system for the job
  • job progress alerts
  • in-app reports of processed results
  • support for a variety of Trimble receivers including the Trimble R10, the Trimble R8 (Model 4), the Trimble R6 (Model 4), the Trimble NetR9™ and the Trimble NetR5

In addition, the Trimble RTX app also allows farmers to activate the Trimble RangePoint RTX correction service directly from the mobile device. Free for one year through 2013, RangePoint RTX delivers better than 15 centimeter (6 inch) pass to pass and 50 centimeter (20 inch) repeatable GNSS accuracy; it is ideal for broad acre agriculture applications.

"We are committed to offering new ways of providing high-accuracy positioning," said Patricia Boothe, general manager of Trimble's Positioning Services Division. "With this new mobile app, we are delivering the power of Trimble RTX technology into the palms of our customers' hands."

The free Trimble RTX app is available for smartphones and tablets using the Android operating system. Available now, the CenterPoint RTX post-processing feature operates on Gingerbread or higher. The RangePoint RTX self-activation feature, available in the fourth quarter of 2013, requires Jelly Bean or higher. To download the app, go to Google Play™ Store or visit: http://www.trimble.com/positioning-services/.

About Trimble RTX Technology
Trimble RTX (Real Time eXtended) is a high-accuracy GNSS correction technology delivering repeatable positions worldwide. By combining real-time data with innovative positioning and compression algorithms, Trimble RTX technology utilizes data from a global reference station infrastructure to compute high accuracy positions based on satellite orbit and clock information. Trimble RTX technology enables various solutions—including Trimble's RTX-based family of real-time correction services as well as the post-processing variant, Trimble Pivot™ RTX App and Trimble Pivot RTX App-PP infrastructure solutions, and the Trimble xFill™ bridging feature which "fills in" for RTK corrections in the event of temporary radio or Internet connection outages.
