LAS VEGAS, Nov. 5, 2012-Trimble introduced the Terrain Navigator Pro app for iPhone and Android. This mobile app allows professionals to collect markers, tracks and geo-stamp photos in the field, and then sync all the GPS data into the Terrain Navigator Pro (TNP) office software. The announcement was made at Trimble Dimensions 2012.

"The TNP app provides a simple solution for professionals to collect and seamlessly transmit data from the field to the office using a smartphone instead of a consumer GPS device," said Kevin Toohill, general manager of MyTopo, a Trimble Company. "This mobile app is ideal for entry-level GIS applications not previously addressed by Trimble products. These users may not require high-precision for every field project and they can migrate to our professional-level data collectors at any time."

Using the GPS built into smartphones, professionals can collect field data in areas without a cellular or data signal. As soon as professionals return to a WiFi or data connection like a 3G network, they can share information in real-time with the office. In addition, topographic, aerial and street maps can be downloaded onto the phone for offline use and data display. Other app features include compass and geo-information such as latitude/longitude, elevation and direction.

The new mobile app is a free download and only accessible to Terrain Navigator Pro users with a licensed copy of the 9.2 software. For more information about TNP apps and map software, go to   www.mytopo.com/tnp.
