Trimble Introduced New Versions of the 5800 GPS Receiver

Trimble introduced new versions of the 5800 GPS receiver, Trimble Survey Controller software and Trimble Office software. The 5800 RTK system has been improved to include GPS base station functionality, VRS (Virtual Reference Station) enhancements, support for Bluetooth communications with selected cellular phones, including those with GSM/GPRS technology and on-board memory. In addition, the 5800 now has 2 Mb of internal memory for more flexibility in logging and storing data. Trimble Survey Controller 10.7 software provides advanced graphical capabilities for road cross-section stakeout and in-field design. In addition, new onboard data collection applications for use with Trimble 5600 total stations allow for automated surface scanning using the direct reflex (DR) EDM, repeated measurements, remote object elevation and continuous topographical measurement. To ensure a smooth workflow between field and office with Trimble Survey Controller 10.7, the Trimble Geomatics Office and Trimble Total Control surveying software packages have been updated as well.
