Introducing the New Trimble R1 GNSS Receiver
Higher Accuracy for BYOD and Smart Devices, including iPhone and Android devices
With the release of the Trimble® R1 GNSS receiver, Trimble Mapping & GIS enables Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) users to collect reliable high-accuracy GNSS positions using their smartphone, tablet device, or embedded data collection handhelds or tablets—no matter where they are in the world. The R1 GNSS receiver is a small, lightweight, rugged, standalone GNSS receiver that provides accurate positioning information to smart devices via a wireless Bluetooth® connection, and has the ability to utilize SBAS, VRS, or RTX correction sources.
Key features and benefits:
Achieve higher location accuracy
Users will achieve a higher and more reliable level of location accuracy than their existing devices currently deliver on their own. A true GNSS receiver supporting GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS, the R1 takes advantage of SBAS, VRS, or the optional Trimble ViewPoint™ RTX™ service* for submeter accuracy, either via IP (requires network connectivity) or via L-Band (satellite).
Professional data collection, inspection, or asset management for more devices and in more places.
The R1 GNSS receiver provides the flexibility to be paired with the right smart device for the job at hand and offers a choice of correction signals suitable for even remote locations. Small, lightweight and rugged—meeting even Military Standards (MIL-810)—it has been designed with the GIS professional and their need for all-day performance in mind.
Even when upgrading or replacing smart devices, or when switching operating system platforms the user’s investment in this professional-grade GNSS receiver is protected and they can easily transition or switch between devices.
Using the Trimble R1 GNSS receiver is easy. Simply:
• Install the R1 GNSS receiver application on the smart device
• Turn on the R1 GNSS receiver and pair with the smart device, using Bluetooth
• Configure the receiver with a correction source (e.g. SBAS, VRS, RTX)
• Collect data, inspect, or manage assets as usual, taking advantage of the R1 accuracy

Trimble Releases Next Generation of TerraSync GPS Data Collection Software
Trimble has announced the release of its next generation of Trimble® TerraSync™ software, a market-leading data collection and asset management application. TerraSync software is deployed in utilities, public sector, natural resources, and many other organizations throughout the world as a key component of enterprise Geographic Information System (GIS) data collection and asset management projects. The latest release focuses on updates requested by users to better address their changing needs.
The key enhancements include:
Intelligent data capture based on conditional attributes. TerraSync software data capture forms now dynamically adapt to previously entered attribute values for maximum data collection efficiency. Examples include making a conditional attribute hidden or visible, read-only, or required.
Customizable user interface. To simplify the field user experience, a new TerraSync Studio utility allows a configurable user interface to be developed so unneeded sections of the interface can be made invisible.
Faster raster map display. Using aerial photos or satellite imagery is now more efficient with raster map background redraw up to 25 times faster than rendering in previous TerraSync software versions, making it possible to work with much larger images.
In conjunction with the TerraSync software, a new version of Trimble GPS Pathfinder® Office software is available which includes enhancements to the Data Dictionary Editor to support conditional attributes as well as the new TerraSync Studio utility to develop and test customized user interfaces.
