Geo Explorer Geographic Information Data Collector Trimble GeoXHHandheld 2008 Series
For high-accuracy GIS data collection and asset relocation, the Trimble® GeoXH™ handheld is the ultimate integrated solution. Engineered with H-Star™ technology, the GeoXH handheld delivers decimeter (10 cm / 4 inch) to subfoot (<30 cm) accuracy when you need it, making it the ideal device for electric and gas utilities, water and wastewater services, land reform projects, and other applications where on-the-spot positioning is crucial. The unique GeoExplorer® 2008 series combines a Trimble GPS receiver with a rugged handheld computer, built for all-day use and packed with connectivity options. Technology this clever has never been more convenient.

Subfoot accuracy when you need it
When your GIS database requires the highest levels of accuracy, the GeoXH handheld is the answer. Using revolutionary Trimble H-Star technology, the GeoXH handheld delivers real-time subfoot accuracy with the internal antenna, and decimeter accuracy with an optional Tornado™ external antenna. Back-office data processing is eliminated, streamlining asset inventories and as-built mapping jobs. Need to relocate assets in the field? The GeoXH handheld has you covered. Buried and hidden assets can be tracked down with ease, as the real-time high accuracy gets you straight to the point. Cables and pipes can be excavated without wasted effort or risk of damage to nearby assets. When you postprocess with Trimble office software you can be confident of achieving decimeter level accuracy with greater consistency at longer baselines, in tougher environments, and with shorter occupations.

Packed full of power
With a powerful 520 MHz processor, 128 MB RAM, and 1 GB of onboard storage, the GeoXH handheld is a high performance device designed to work as hard as you do. The handheld gives you all the power you need to work with maps and large data sets in the field, and its high resolution VGA display allows for crisp and clear viewing of your data. The GeoXH handheld is powered by the industry-standard Windows Mobile® version 6 operating system so you can choose a software solution designed for your field requirements, whether off-the-shelf or purpose-built.
The Windows Mobile 6 operating system includes familiar Microsoft® software, including Word Mobile, Excel Mobile, and Outlook® Mobile, giving you all the tools you need for a seamless exchange of data between the field and the office.

Get the data you need, when you need it
With the GeoXH handheld you have the flexibility to work exactly the way you want to. Use the built-in wireless LAN connection to access your organization’s secure network and get the most up-todate information. And with Bluetooth®wireless technology, the GeoXH handheld offers wireless connection to a Bluetoothenabled cellular phone for access to the Internet to receive real-time corrections from a VRS™ network and background map data. You can also wirelessly connect to other devices such as Bluetooth-enabled laser rangefinders and barcode scanners for convenient cable-free solutions that keep you productive in the field.

Built for the field
The GeoXH handheld has an integrated battery, good for a full day’s work; simply charge the battery overnight and you’re ready to go again. The GeoXH handheld will last the distance, and its rugged design can take a lot of punishment. Rain, hail or shine, it’s built to keep working, whatever the weather throws at you.

When accuracy is critical
Rugged design and powerful functionality are the hallmarks of the GeoExplorer series. And now with H-Star technology providing decimeter to subfoot accuracy in real time, the 2008 series GeoXH handheld is your ultimate solution for high-accuracy asset management.When accuracy is critical, the GeoXH handheld delivers—with unprecedented efficiency and reliability, when and where you need it.

Trimble TDL 3G Cellular Modem


The TDL 3G is a compact, rugged, 3.5G
cellular modem accessory that provides
all-day network accessibility to Trimble®
Wi-Fi or Bluetooth® capable handheld
devices. The TDL 3G Bluetooth wireless
technology provides instant, reliable, and
secure Internet access and VRS™ corrections
wherever you work.

A connected workforce
With high-speed Internet connectivity, the
integrated 3.5G cellular modem provides
you and your entire field team the ability
to quickly access the data you need in the
field. You can download the latest project
files, utilize web-based background files,
and upload completed work at the end of
the day.

You can also access VRS corrections through
the cellular network. The accuracy of
real-time corrections not only ensures high
quality data for your GIS, it also makes
locating assets in the field quicker and
more accurate. Back in the office, data
processing is streamlined too, removing the
need for postprocessing before uploading
to your GIS.

Designed for the field worker
With a powerful 3,000 mAh lithium-ion
rechargeable battery, the TDL 3G will
work for a full day on one battery charge.
Recharge overnight and you’re ready to go
the next day.

The TDL 3G has been designed to meet
your needs in the harshest environments.
The TDL 3G is rated IP67 (impervious to
dust and immersable in water), operates at
temperatures of –10˚ C to 60˚ C (+14˚ F to
140˚ F) and is drop tested to 1.2 m (3.9 ft).

Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connectivity
Your handheld can communicate with
your TDL 3G using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth,
depending on the required application.

Wi-Fi is ideal when you require high
speed Internet access to download project
files, send in work at the end of the day,
download maps, and keep in contact with
your office via email.

Bluetooth is perfect for accessing high
accuracy VRS connections over the
Internet. The bandwidth of a Bluetooth
connection is sufficient for VRS corrections
and requires less power consumption than
a Wi-Fi connection, extending battery life
of the TDL 3G in the field.

Increase your productivity
A simple setup and an intuitive user
interface remove the difficulties often
associated with setting up complicated
cellular phone connections.

Having internet and VRS access when
you need it will increase your efficiency in
the field.

Using the TDL 3G as part of your field
solution adds up to increased productivity,
saving you time and money.
