Trimble 5800 GPS Receiver
The Trimble® 5800 GPS receiver provides reliability and simplicity for basic surveying tasks. You can trust that the proven design of the Trimble 5800 will perform under the toughest conditions.

Integrated System
Because the Trimble 5800 GPS receiver's components are completely integrated, the system is lightweight and ergonomic—and completely cable-free. 2 MB of internal memory makes collecting data for postprocessing extremely easy and efficient, whether for static or kinematic (stop-and-go) surveying.

Advanced Technology
The Trimble 5800 GPS system offers advanced Trimble GPS technology. It is a 24-channel dual-frequency GPS receiver, containing Trimble’s proven Maxwell™ technology for robust tracking in difficult GPS environments.

Two additional channels for WAAS and EGNOS tracking let you perform real-time differential surveys to GIS grade without a base station.

The dual-frequency Trimble antenna enhances the tracking capabilities of the Trimble 5800—the patented four-point antenna feed provides submillimeter phase center stability for precise results. The position of the UHF radio antenna mounting further increases accuracy by being out of the GPS line-of-sight, reducing multipath and avoiding interference with the GPS antenna.

For rover communications use the built-in 450 or 900 MHz radio, or use an external radio, cell phone or wireless packet data modem.

For extended coverage and comprehensive error checking when roving, the Trimble 5800 works with signals from multiple base stations transmitting on the same radio channel. For even larger area coverage, at highest accuracies, the Trimble 5800 works with Trimble VRS™ networks.

Integrated Bluetooth® wireless technology enables cable-free communication between the receiver and your Trimble controller.

Built For The Field
As a rover, the Trimble 5800 is not only lightweight and cable-free; it also consumes minimal power. Two miniature batteries will power the receiver for up to 11 hours – at least enough for a full working day.

Environmentally rated to IPX7, and submersible to a depth of 1 m, the Trimble 5800 is rugged enough for any job. It can withstand a drop of up to 2 m on to a hard surface.

Wide Range of Applications:
The 5800 GPS system is ideal for a wide range of positioning applications, including:

  • Survey
  • Construction
  • Asset management


  • Purpose-built integrated GPS receiver for improved productivity
  • Scalable from L1, postprocessing to full RTK configurations
