US: Spectra Precision has launched MobileMapper 20 GIS handheld. In the same form factor as the current MobileMapper 10 handheld, MobileMapper 20 offers enhanced capabilities: a new bright VGA color touch screen display, a 5 MP camera for higher resolution images, doubled memory capacity and 3.5G cellular performance.
The company claims that MobileMapper 20 would provide real-time GPS accuracy of better than 2 meters and post-processed accuracy of a half meter using MobileMapper Office software. It incorporates a variety of communication technologies, including Bluetooth, WiFi and a 3.5 G cellular modem. With a compact lightweight design, large display and long battery life (typically more than 20 hours), the easy-to-use handheld is ideal for intensive data collection. The MobileMapper 20 runs Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 and offers the flexibility to support a broad range of third-party software applications.
