    SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 15 /EMWNews-FirstCall/ -- Trimble (Nasdaq:

TRMB) announced today that it has launched Trimble(R) VRS Now(TM) service

in the state of Florida. The commercial subscription service will provide

surveyors, civil engineers and geospatial measurement professionals with

instant access to real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning and high-accuracy

Differential GPS (DGPS) corrections without the need for a field base


    The service will deliver centimeter-level RTK and Differential GNSS

(DGNSS) positioning customized for each Global Navigation Satellite System

(GNSS) rover receiver's exact location anywhere in the network. The Trimble

VRS Now service supplies fast, easy to use and accurate GNSS positioning

for a variety of applications including surveying, urban planning,

construction, asset management, transportation, environmental monitoring,

resource and territory management, disaster prevention and relief, weather

services and scientific research.

    A subscription to the Trimble VRS Now service and a GNSS rover is all a

user needs to begin surveying or collecting data with precision anywhere

within the network. Surveyors and other users can switch on their receiver

and real-time corrections are available in seconds. Trimble VRS Now works

with nearly all GPS and GNSS survey instruments from a variety of


    In addition to standard cell phone connection to the network, service

in the Tampa-Orlando area also includes an innovative and powerful radio

broadcast option. The low-band radio option provides further assurance to

users, even in areas where cellular signals are limited or simply not


    "Our Florida network is the latest network service implementation in a

series of commercial GNSS Infrastructure networks from Trimble. Through

increased productivity and lower project costs, Trimble VRS Now provides

real business value to the local community," said Pierre Desjardins,

business manager for Trimble's GNSS Infrastructure business area. "Our goal

is to streamline the workflow of our surveying and positioning customers

while increasing productivity."

    The system in Florida includes a network of Trimble NetR5(TM) GNSS

Reference Stations equipped to receive broad-spectrum GPS and GLONASS

positioning signals to maximize field productivity. Network corrections are

calculated using Trimble VRS(TM) technology, the most widely used network

RTK solution worldwide. With an initial coverage of nearly 50 percent of

Florida, the users can now connect into the network using a wireless

connection -- either cellular or Trimble proprietary low-band radio -- for

fast, easy access to precise network RTK and DGPS corrections in most

populated area.

    Trimble VRS Now represents a major advance in precision surveying and

positioning productivity. No longer dependant on a field base station,

precision GNSS surveys can be up and running in minutes. And without the

need for base station hardware, the user's GNSS receivers can now work

independently as rovers -- saving time and money. Simply connect, correct

and measure.
