Trimble announced that its GeoExplorer CE series of GPS handheld receivers are now available with Bluetooth wireless technology and the Microsoft Windows CE.NET operating system. These new features provide mapping and mobile Geographic Information System (GIS) users with high-performance GPS field computing and the convenience of wireless connectivity. Productivity is increased not only in the field but also in the office -- where field data is immediately available for decision making.

The announcement was made at ESRI's 18th European User Conference.

The GeoExplorer CE series continues to set the industry standard for integrated GPS and GIS field computing with the addition of Bluetooth wireless technology.

Bluetooth capability provides true wireless connectivity and easy data flow between the field and office. Mobile users can access enterprise GIS data, e-mail, Internet Map services, such as ArcIMS, with a cell phone connection. Bluetooth also enables wireless connectivity to PCs, PDAs and networks to share GPS data in the field. In addition, eliminating cables to Bluetooth-enabled peripheral devices allow for better field ergonomics and provide easy connectivity to lasers, cameras and other handheld devices. Field work becomes less complicated and more productive.

The Microsoft Windows CE.NET operating system includes software that increases productivity in the field. The Transcriber handwriting recognition ensures easy text entry and WordPad gives improved word processing capabilities. In addition, Microsoft File Viewers makes viewing PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and image files quick and easy.
