Topcon, the company that brought you the first integrated GPS receiver now brings you the first fully integrated handheld GNSS receiver and field controller!
Topcon continues to enhance GNSS receivers by adding Vanguard TechnologyTM to the already successfull GRS-1. The GRS-1 now featuring Vanguard TechnologyTM has 226 GNSS channels that use Universal Tracking Technology for unmatched GNSS signal flexibility and expandability. It is all-in-one handheld GNSS receiver and field controller with high speed processor, bright sunlight readable screen, and optional camera. It is packed with communications as well. Bluetooth®, Wifi, and optional internal CDMA or GSM modem.
The GRS-1 achieves three primary and evolutionary goals for a GNSS receiver: small size, minimal weight, and affordability. It provides DGPS capability via an internal L1 antenna, perfect for the GIS and navigation space. Instantly move to centimeter RTK accurate dual frequency / dual constellation GNSS by simply adding a carbon-fiber pole with Topcon’s PG-S1 external antenna then connect to your local GNSS network via the internal modem. As an added benefit, the GRS-1 can also be used as a static post processed receiver system.
Built-in 2.0 Megapixel Camera (Optional)
That’s right, the GRS-1 comes with a 2.0 megapixel camera with autofocus for taking pictures. Store photos on-board with the 1GB of Flash memory or use the external SD card slot for additional memory.
Internal Magnetic Compass
Utilizing compass bearing with GNSS positioning, the magnetic compass allows for additional measurements to be taken from a single location.
With 1GB Flash standard, the GRS-1 is loaded with memory. But if you need more, the SD card slot and the mini USB Host functionality can provide additional memory. Use the USB mini port as both a Host and Client. This functionality allows for expanded memory and easy file transfer through USB flash drives or SD memory cards.
