Maysville, Ky. (Sept. 2, 2008) – Carlson Software is making it easier for surveyors to get the speed they want with the reliability they need by offering a trade-in program to help introduce their all new Carlson Surveyor+ data collector.
Now is the time to trade in your out-of-date data collector and move up to the
fast, incredibly durable, and powerful Surveyor+. Contact your local dealers to
find out about trade-in values starting at $500 and going as high as $1500
depending on the model and software traded in.
Both the all new Carlson Surveyor+ and Carlson Surveyor (not included in the
trade-in promotion) are completely ruggedized, with an IP67 water and dust
resistant Ingress rating. Both versions of the handheld computer are encased in
magnesium housing. In essence, they come in a “full metal jacket” so that they
can withstand every day accidental abuse as well as the unexpected. In addition
to more RAM and increased operating speed than the Surveyor, the Surveyor+ has
the option to add an extra battery to increase operating time.
Weighing just two pounds, the Carlson Surveyor line offers up to 1 gigabyte of
memory with the option to expand. Designed with surveyors in mind, the Surveyor
and Surveyor+ keyboard is sized to work with even the largest or gloved hands,
while the backlit control keys provide ease and convenience. They are light and
easy to grip, being thinner front to back than other data collectors when
resting on a table top. The computer runs on Windows Mobile 6 and Carlson
SurvCE 2.0, the powerful data collection software used around the world, can be

Surveyors durable, but they have exceptional keys for ease of data entry,” says
Bruce Carlson, president and founder of Carlson Software. “So, they can handle
being dropped, and the keys can survive scraping through the brush and tree
branches as you do your survey work.”
Use the Surveyors
for surveying, stake out, construction layout and more – they’re the ideal high-tech
companion to your total station and GPS equipment. The easy-to-use tab-based
menu and advanced graphics in Carlson SurvCE 2.0 work perfectly on the Carlson
Surveyor, enhancing its usability. Two styles of USB connectors are located on
top, again for the convenience of the user. The 3.5-inch diagonal backlit
screen offers color QVGA resolution of 240x320 pixels. OPERATIN
