If you have just received your Geo7x Handheld with Integrated Laser Rangefinder Module, this tech tip will demonstrate how to attach the laser rangefinder module so you can start using Trimble’s Flightwave technology. We also recommended regular inspection to ensure the module is securely fastened to the handheld. Attaching the module is simple and can be performed using the provided wrench. The wrench is conveniently built into the module and can pop out when needed.
Simply remove the wrench from its housing and hand-tighten the two silver hex bolts on each side of the rangefinder module. Do not over tighten the bolts! Slide the wrench back into the housing when the module is securely fastened.

Trimble will be holding a webinar – Overcoming Accuracy Limitations of BYOD Smart Devices – on March 4th, 2015. In this interactive webinar you will learn:
- How consumer-grade smart devices (iPhone, Android, tablets, etc…) obtain location data and the challenges using built-in GPS functionality
- The limitations these consumer-grade devices have when used in professional GIS applications and workflows
- How the Trimble R1 GNSS receiver will provide professional-grade positioning information on your smart device
Register to learn how the lightweight, pocket-sized Trimble R1 can help carry out professional data collection, inspection, and asset management tasks – all through a wireless Bluetooth® connection with your mobile device.
The webinar will be held on March 4th, 2015 at 9am and 5pm CST.
We have scheduled a Trimble Certified training class in Anchorage, AK on April 23-24. This course will be covering TerraSync and Pathfinder Office. Space is limited to register early! For more information click here.
Not in Alaska? We have classes scheduled in Bismarck, ND, Denver, CO, and Minneapolis, MN.
Here is a complete list of our upcoming classes.
Today Trimble announced the release of their R1 Receiver. This GNSS receiver is a pocket sized receiver, weighing in at 6.5 ounces that can be used on its own or with iOS, Android, or Windows mobile devices.
The R1 reciever is a multi-constilation reiever that supports GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS. It also supports RTX, VRS, and SBAS corrections to sub-meter accuracy.
The R1 is designed to work seamlessly with Trimble’s cloud based solution TerraFlex™, Trimble TerraSync™ and Trimble Positions™ mapping and Geographic Information System (GIS) field software. Which allows for attribute-rich data collection on professional and consumer devices. Trimble now offers a solution in which you can use your existing smart phone or tablets for a high accuracy solution with the R1 receiver. The receiver is expected to be available early March 2015.

This Tech Talk is a continuation of the Basic Data Dictionary Creation video we have published for Trimble GPS Pathfinder Office and TerraSync users. In this advanced video we explain and demonstrate more complex data dictionary features such as conditional attributes. Advanced data dictionaries can benefit field users in many ways. Say goodbye to erroneous data and wasted time. Learn how to create robust data dictionaries today!
Users of Trimble Positions Desktop add-in version 10.3.0.1 can create projects that incorporate existing layer schema and can also include existing features from file, personal, and enterprise geodatabases. Collected data (new and updated) can be checked-in from within the ArcMap environment. You can create projects which contain a dictionary and information required for mapping between SSF and geodatabase data.
