Trimble has announced the launch of its Trimble Access 2020 software for its line of Windows 10 controllers, and now available for the first time on the Android-powered TDC600 tablet.
Material released by the firm suggests that they anticipate this as a lower-cost route to a fully-featured field device, and allows surveyors to maintain familiar tools and survey instruments while moving to a lightweight, Android-based platform.
“The ability to use the intuitive field software on the Trimble TDC600 Android device will put Trimble Access in the hands of more surveyors and engineers,” said Jason Rossback, marketing director for Trimble Geospatial Field Solutions.
“This solution provides a powerful option for field workers such as road inspectors, who need the full set of survey tools combined with the portability of a mobile device.”
Other key features of the 2020 release include the new snap-to toolbar, providing an easier way to select locations on objects within a map, such as the end of a polyline or centre of an arc.
Other features include a limit box feature, facilitating exclusion of data to view map areas more clearly, and the ability to measure points with independent subsets of currently tracked GNSS constellations in RTK surveys.
