Trimble Puts GPS Mapping in Your Pocket

Trimble today introduced a uniquely designed personal, pocket-sized Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver for the mapping and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) market. Developed to use with a number of popular handheld devices including pen-based or laptop computers, Pocket PCs, and Palm devices, the GPS Pathfinder® Pocket receiver is rugged, compact and lightweight, making it easy to carry and use, while still providing the sophisticated results required by GIS professionals.

At 5 oz. and small enough to fit into your pocket, the new Pocket GPS receiver gives GIS professionals a personal GPS that won’t restrict mobility or get in the way of task performance. And with — very efficient power management the GPS Pathfinder Pocket receiver keeps day-to-day power-related costs to a minimum.

“The GPS Pathfinder Pocket receiver answers the need in the GIS community for a receiver that is literally invisible to the user,” said Alan Townsend, vice president and general manager of Trimble’s Mapping and GIS Division. “With the power and capabilities of much larger units, the Pocket receiver makes field data management activities quick, easy and robust. Yet because of its size, it doesn’t impede the operator.”

As part of Trimble’s popular GPS Pathfinder product line, the GPS Pathfinder Pocket receiver provides a complementary product for field-based applications that makes it easier for the GIS professional to find the right solution for the task. The Pocket receiver integrates easily to popular handheld devices; interacting seamlessly with Trimble’s TerraSync(TM) data maintenance software and the GPS Pathfinder® Tools software development kit. The receiver can also be used directly with other third-party application software, by configuring the receiver to output TSIP or NMEA message strings.
