Trimble GeoExplorer 6000 Series GeoXH
The Trimble® GeoExplorer® 6000 series takes GNSS productivity to a whole new level. Bringing together the essential functionality for high-accuracy field work in one device, the GeoXH™ handheld delivers real-time decimeter (10 cm / 4 inch) accuracy positioning and high quality photo capture.

Together with the latest field software enhancements and GNSS innovations—including Trimble Floodlight™ satellite shadow reduction technology—the GeoXH handheld establishes a new standard for GNSS system performance and handheld data capture.

Decimeter accuracy without the wait
For field workers recording the location of buried infrastructure, distinguishing between closely spaced assets, or relocating buried equipment, the GeoXH handheld delivers the accuracy and speed required to ensure that the work of recording new asset locations or navigating back to previously captured assets is fast and reliable.

Floodlight satellite shadow reduction
Trees and buildings create satellite shadows, limiting the environments where reliable high- accuracy GNSS data collection can be performed. Using the innovative Trimble Floodlight satellite shadow reduction technology, the GeoXH handheld continues to deliver productive, usable positioning data in areas where legacy GNSS receiver systems cannot.

With Floodlight technology, the GeoXH receiver can compute positions even with very weak satellite signals. Floodlight technology increases the number of positions that are gathered in difficult locations, and boosts accuracy in those places where normally only low accuracy data is available. With the GeoXH handheld, field crews can now work with fewer disruptions, meaning better data, faster, at less cost.

Never-seen-before display performance
The GeoXH handheld includes a sunlight-optimized display designed specifically for outdoor operation. It maintains exceptional clarity in all outdoor conditions, including direct sunlight. Text is crisp and easy to read. Background maps and photos are rich and vibrant. At 4.2" (10.7 cm), the display is also big, so the touch panel is spacious and easy to control.

Work online, anywhere, cable-free
With the GeoXH handheld, wireless connectivity options including cellular, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® technology ensure that field workers can remain in contact with the office and each other, even from remote locations.

Bluetooth technology also enables wireless connection to other external devices such as Bluetooth-enabled laser range finders, barcode scanners, or underground pipe locators.

High quality photo capture
A photograph is often the best way to capture information about an asset, event, or site. The GeoXH handheld includes a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with geo-tagging capability. The camera can be controlled by the TerraSync™ software and other third-party applications, so photo capture and linking of images to GIS features is seamless and simple to integrate with existing data capture workflows.

Designed for work
The GeoExplorer 6000 series was designed with a single goal in mind—delivering a high-accuracy handheld GNSS system that works faster, longer, and in more places than any other.

The Lithium-Ion battery provides up to 8 hours of GNSS operation on a single charge, and can be swapped on-the-go without shutting down the device—enabling near-continuous operation and minimizing field worker downtime.

The GeoXH handheld is powered by a super-fast OMAP 3503 series processor and 256 MB RAM. With 2 GB of internal storage and the capacity to add an additional 32 GB via SDHC card, the GeoXH handheld has the capacity and power needed to work with high resolution maps and the most complex datasets.

The fully ruggedized IP65 construction is designed to withstand the harshest environments. Wherever field workers go, they can take the GeoXH handheld with the confidence that the equipment can handle the toughest conditions.

These smart design features combine with unprecedented accuracy and productivity to deliver the ultimate high performance handheld field solution.

*1* SBAS (Satellite Based Augmentation System). Includes WAAS available in North America only, EGNOS available in Europe only and MSAS available in Japan only.
*2* HRMS refers to Horizontal Root Mean Squared accuracy, 1-sigma (68%). Except in conditions where most GNSS signals are affected by trees, or buildings, or other objects. The following factors increase the availability of specified H-Star accuracy: availability of GPS & GLONASS data at the base station(s) used for corrections, longer elapsed time tracking uninterrupted L1/L2 carrier phase data, use of the optional external Tornado antenna, tracking of more satellites with L2 measurements, shorter distance to the base station(s), and use of more (than one) base stations for postprocessing. Specified H-Star accuracy can normally be achieved for baseline lengths of 100 km or less. H-Star accuracy is typically achieved within 2 minutes. 45 minute carrier postprocessed accuracy is limited to data collected within 10 km of the base station. Except when using VRS corrections, accuracy varies with proximity to base station by +1 ppm for code postprocessing and real-time. Carrier postprocessed accuracy varies with proximity to base station by +2 ppm.
*3* Tested by Trimble with default system settings at 21°C ambient. Actual run time will vary with conditions of use.
*4* 3.5G edition handhelds only. The GeoXH 3.5G edition handheld is PTCRB certified and can operate on supported networks that do not require carrier certification. Consult with your local reseller for more information.
*5* Bluetooth and Wi-Fi type approvals are country specific. GeoExplorer 6000 series handhelds have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi approval in the U.S. and in most European countries. For further information please consult your local reseller.
*6* NMEA output is an optional upgrade.
