The Ashtech MobileMapper10, the best MobileMapper product in my opinion, past or present. I mention in a couple of other rental product pages the 2 "all-in one" handhelds we embraced when we got our start, and the MobileMapper product line was the other. We started with the MobileMapperCX aka MMCX, but when the MobileMapper 6 came out with the new Windows Mobile 6 we knew the next version was gonna be awesome, and it was. The MobileMapper 10 had a full QVGA screen, it was rugged but not so much that the price jumped way up. It ran the new MobileMapper Field application and whatever the latest version of ArcPad or even SOLO Forest we had at the time. This unit is a staple with me at any time, any road trip or vacation, its with me.
Using the receiver with simple SBAS its a 1-2 m. real-time solution. Collect and process RAW data and its a sub-meter (more like half meter) solution. The real shine and polish of this unit is the MobileMapper Field application. Its inexpensive, easy to set up and easy to train anyone to use. Its a simple and clean interface without “too many” menus and sub-menus. Add to that the MobileMapper Office application is FREE. (your IT people can take a seat, as it can be installed on as many and wherever you want. There is no licensing or codes to install for use) This is the program that lets you post process data to achieve sub-meter (with the MobileMapper 6 and MobileMapper 10) and sub-foot (with the MobileMapper 100), then export to Google KML, GPX (GPS exchange), or CSV for the spreadsheet user(s) in the group. You know who I'm talking about.
CAD users: We have other processes for you folks. Let me ask, when was the last time your GPS sales person could talk tech with you about Blocks with Attributes or Cells with Tags? What about how to get your data collected to the correct layer or level? AutoCAD and Microstation users know what I'm talking about. I have used AutoCAD and Microstation since 1995. Jumped into GIS in 1997, so getting to know how to do “what to what” in order to get that file to open and be useable in my application was a part of my daily life. If you use CAD and need to do field work with a GNSS receiver, you really should be talking with us about a solution and feel "fuzzy and warm" about talking with a CAD user about a CAD solution.
LTI TruPulse users: We paired via Bluetooth, performed offsets using MMField, ArcPad, SOLO, or SurvCE, and had no issues, it works just fine.
RTK users: If you need decimeter or better, just give us a call and lets talk.
Its fast enough for most any field work, has plenty of storage and expansion options, has Bluetooth and WiFi, integrated 3MP camera takes nice clean images, and the user changeable battery is not only efficient, it is inexpensive to replace or purchase extras. Did I forget to mention, it charges via a USB mini cable not proprietary AC adapter! Really. You can literally charge it (slowly) from your laptop. I'm gonna stop before I get me started on replacement part costs vs. the competition.
