Spectra Geospatial has announced the release of the MobileMapper 60, its latest combined GNSS collector and smartphone.
The specced-up MobileMapper 60 featured Android 8.0, a 2.2Ghz processor, 4GB SDRAM, 64GB internal storage and can be expanded with 256GB MicroSD storage.
It sports a 72-channel internal antenna and supports GPS L1 C/A, GLONASS L1 C/A, Galileo E1, Beidou B1, and SBAS signals, with the ability to connect an external antenna and pole.
It has a replaceable 8000 mAh battery (compare that to an off-the-shelf smartphone) and is encased in a rugged housing with IP67 water- and dust-proofing, and a MIL-STD-810G shock resistance rating.
Whilst certainly a capably-specified machine, Spectra is again banking on the convenience of having one device less in the toolbox by combining a handheld GNSS data collector with full smartphone capabilities.
