Best value ultra-rugged handheld with integrated GPS

The Trimble® Recon® GPS XC edition is an affordable, ultra-rugged GPS solution for field data collection and mobile GIS. The all-in-one system combines a Trimble Recon handheld with the CompactFlash card-based GPS Pathfinder® XC receiver. It's the best value, ultra-rugged, cable-free solution available.

The Trimble Recon GPS XC edition provides the same rugged, weatherproof performance you've come to expect from the Trimble Recon handheld, and because it's so easy to use and affordable, it's an ideal solution for utility companies, government organizations, and natural resource agencies that are managing large deployments and tight budgets.

The Trimble Recon handheld includes built-in Bluetooth wireless technology and wireless LAN, to connect to a range of peripherals or to a wireless LAN to send or receive data.

The system has been specifically designed to provide positions in hostile environments, such as under forest canopy or up against buildings. If you need better accuracy than you can achieve autonomously, you can postprocess your data, a capability that is lacking in most other CompactFlash GPS cards. You'll get reliable 2 to 5 meter accuracy and the ability to control the quality and consistency of your data.
