Leica Geosystems is taking a big step in GNSS with the addition of a new hybrid communication technology to its Leica Viva GS14 GNSS.

“The Leica Viva GS14 with its hybrid communication technology is the most advanced compact GNSS receiver in the market,” says Bernhard Richter, Leica Geosystems' GNSS business director. “The addition of CDMA modem capability in a unique all-in-one design offers unmatched flexibility in communication choices.”

The GNSS receiver now supports Verizon CDMA solutions, along with all standard 2G/3G networks and UHF TX/RX radio in a single device. According to Leica, that makes it the only professional GNSS receiver with all three communication systems built in.

Users simply slide in their SIM card to experience instant connectivity for faster and easier field communications and SmartNet RTK corrections. Unique in the industry, the Leica Viva GS14 3.75G&UHF supports 2G GPRS, 3G HSPa+, CDMA (EV DO) and UHF TX/RX radio between 450 and 470 MHz in one compact housing. Professionals can choose whether they want to use the UHF radio to transmit or receive work, a 2G/3G cellular network, or Verizon CDMA. No external equipment is required.

The Leica Viva GS14 3.75G&UHF is available now throughout the U.S. Ordering information and details are available from all authorized Leica Geosystems representatives and dealers across the nation.
