SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today the Trimble® Geo 5 and Juno® 5 handheld GNSS devices, further extending Trimble's portfolio for data collection, maintenance and inspection applications. The Geo 5 and Juno 5 series are both optimized for GIS field workflows, including Trimble's industry-leading TerraSync® field software available on all Trimble GIS platforms.
Since 1994, the Trimble GeoExplorer® line of GNSS handhelds has set the standard for professional GIS data collection applications. While the GeoExplorer 6000 series is the most capable Trimble handheld for GIS data collection, not all customers require the larger screen and innovative Floodlight® technology of the 6000 series. The Geo 5 provides the essential functions for all day, submeter productivity in a smaller package.
The Trimble Juno product line is trusted worldwide for maintenance, inspections and asset management applications. With the addition of the Juno 5 series, Trimble is providing a rugged handheld that delivers the capabilities and convenience of a smartphone. Its slim, ergonomic design is thinner and lighter than other rugged computing products in its class today and provides a more advanced feature set than the Juno 3 series.
"Whether users are engaged in initial data collection tasks or inspection of assets, it is critical they have a complete solution they trust," said Daniel Wallace, general manager of Trimble's GIS Data Collection Division. "Now with two platforms in both the Geo and Juno families, customers can confidently choose a handheld that best fits their needs. Trimble TerraSync software is the unifying workflow that brings these choices together, so customers can always trust the quality of their data throughout the complete lifecycle of a field management project."
Complete with wireless communications options, integrated cameras and bright, sunlight-readable screens, both devices are built for work in the field and rugged enough to withstand shock, vibration, water and dust, for years of reliable performance. These products deliver on the promise of the Trimble brand, trusted around the world for rugged field performance and industry leadership.
