Trimble has introduced the TDC600 handheld, an all-in-one smartphone and GNSS data collector for GIS and field inspection applications.

The company calls it a next-generation smartphone data collector, boasting an Android 8.0 operating system, bright sunlight-readable 6-inch display, 2.2 GHz processor, 4 GB memory and an enhanced capacity all-day battery.

Trimble say the TDC600 integrates with its data collection applications—Trimble TerraFlex software and Trimble Penmap for Android software—as well as third-party apps such as Esri Collector for ArcGIS. With its Google Mobile Services certification, users can run Google core applications and access apps on the Google Play Store for personalisation of their device.

More powerful and with a longer lasting battery than its predecessor, the TDC600 handheld supports the Trimble Catalyst GNSS positioning service that delivers subscription-based accuracy on demand for Android devices. In addition, the TDC600 can be used with external receivers such as the Trimble R2 and R1 GNSS receivers, and also features a built-in GNSS receiver that supports GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou constellations plus Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) capabilities for real-time positioning.

“Our customers now have a powerful, comprehensive and cost-effective entry level system to collect and retrieve highly accurate GIS data virtually anywhere in the world,” said Rachel Blair-Winkler, business area manager for Trimble Mapping & GIS.
