Trimble Mobile GPS Locator 110 --GPS Sensor for Mobile Computers
bulletThe Mobile GPS Locator 110 --providing mobile computing with a sense of direction
Use your portable computer to navigate and collect position data. The Mobile GPS Locator 110 provides the mobile professional with a compact and affordable sources of precise GPS positioning data.
The Locator 110 integrates a GPS antenna and receiver in a single device. The unit is about the size of a computer mouse and may be mounted on your vehicle's dashboard, windshield, or rooftop. It connects to the serial port on your portable computer.
Once linked to the Locator 110 , your portable computer begins receiving precise GPS position and time data--anywhere on Earth, at any time, in any weather.
Load a digital street map, and the Locator 110 turns your portable computer into an in-vehicle navigation device. An image of your car appears on-screen, moving over the map as you move over the actual streets.
Your Locator -equipped computer can also easily record the precise position of objects or assets in the field. And it can automatically tag any of your data entries with the location and time of their creation.
The Locator 110 features a built-in power pack. As a result, you can spend more time on the road or in the field. The Locator 110 also accepts external sources of DC power.
Software developers can use Trimble's Mobile GPS SDK Software to design custom GPS applications for the Locator 110. The SDK Software includes DOS and Windows product design tools.
