streamlines workflows and allows surveyors to run applications they need to perform directly from the field.

Using the multi-touch screen, surveyors can type, pan, and zoom with their fingers, a stylus or capacitive gloves. The display features technology created to enhance sunlight readability. Viewing data, maps and applications is also easier so that surveyors can use Trimble VISION instruments and applications dependent on visual data and graphic interfaces. Jobsite documentation is possible using the tablet’s built-in 5MP camera with autofocus and built-in flash capabilities, while simultaneously providing geotag functionality using integrated GPS.

Other features of the Trimble Tablet include:

  • 7-inch multi-touch screen.
  • Gorilla Glass panel display.
  • Windows 7 operating system.
  • 1.6 GHz Intel Atom dual-core processor, 4 GB RAM and 138 GB of flash-based storage.
  • Connectivity via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a 3.75 GSM cellular data modem.
