MobileMapper CE Now Offers Differential Corrections via NTRIP and Direct IP

San Dimas, Calif., June 15, 2006 -- MobileMapper CE, Thales' affordable, highly-accurate, handheld GPS receiver for GIS applications, now offers differential corrections via NTRIP and direct IP. The new functionality will be available for delivery and via upgrade for current MobileMapper CE owners starting July 1, 2006. Thales will offer current owners of MobileMapper CE V1.0 a free update of their software to Version 1.5 at the Thales FTP website.

First introduced in 2005, Thales MobileMapper CE, remains the standard for performance and affordability in handheld GPS GIS receivers. The most cost-effective solution on the market, the MobileMapper CE GPS receiver offers an impressive array of high-performance features, including real-time, sub-meter GPS positioning, embedded Microsoft Windows CE .NET, Bluetooth wireless technology, removable SD card memory and an all-day removable battery that make it attractive for a wide variety of demanding GIS data collection and mapping applications.

With the embedded Microsoft Windows CE .NET operating system, MobileMapper CE users have the flexibility to choose the field software that's best for them. MobileMapper CE Version 1.5 is available as a stand-alone purchase, bundled with ArcPad, including ArcPad License, or bundled with ArcPad Application Builder including ArcPad Builder License.

The MobileMapper CE GPS receiver offers a familiar Windows computing environment, an 18-button backlit keyboard and touch-sensitive screen that users can learn to operate very quickly. With exemplary ease-of-use and extremely affordable pricing, the MobileMapper CE receiver is well positioned for organizations that have previously been unable to provide cutting-edge technology to field personnel without extensive training and prohibitive expense. The MobileMapper CE GPS receiver is making the benefits of Mobile GIS accessible to a much larger number of people working in the field.

The MobileMapper CE GPS receiver is designed to operate in harsh environments where standard consumer-grade pocket computing devices such as PDAs and other less rugged GPS receivers are easily damaged. Built to withstand a 4.9 foot (1.5 m) drop to concrete and remain waterproof even when totally immersed in water, the MobileMapper CE GPS receiver is expected to have wide appeal for use by field personnel in public safety, civilian and federal agencies, utilities, environmental monitoring, natural resources and a host of other industries and organizations where management and mapping of field assets is desired.
