WIN one of two Topcon GRS-1 RTK rover systems!

By on 7 October, 2011


Topcon’s all-in-one, handheld, dual frequency GNSS receiver and field controller includes everything a surveyor needs out in the field.

With the flexibility to survey, map, navigate and communicate from the one device, Topcon’s GRS-1 makes field work faster and more efficient.

The system includes TopSURV 8 on-board survey software, which allows you to create, edit, upload, and download faster using advanced data management techniques.  Plus the large graphical user interface, combined with the GRS-1 touch screen, makes it easy-to-use and easy-to-see when you’re out in the field.

Together, the GRS-1 RTK rover and TopSURV 8 on-board software make the perfect field solution for surveyors.

Built-in 2.0 Megapixel Camera

That's right, the GRS-1 comes with a 2.0 megapixel camera with autofocus for taking pictures. Store photos on-board with the 1GB of Flash memory or use the external SD card slot for additional memory.

Extra Memory

With 1GB Flash standard, the GRS-1 is loaded with memory. But if you need more, the SD card slot and the mini USB Host functionality can provide additional memory. Use the USB mini port as both a Host and Client. This functionality allows for expanded memory and easy file transfer through USB flash drives or SD memory cards.

Bluetooth® and Wireless LAN

Built-in Bluetooth wireless technology and Wireless LAN connectivity come standard. No need for expensive upgrades or CF cards. Use your device in a typical Hotspot to surf the web, check weather or e-mail files back to the office. When not in use, Topcon also provides a way to turn Bluetooth and Wireless LAN off to conserve battery power.

TopSURV 8 Field Controller Software for Surveying and Data Collection


TopSURV 8 is a whole new experience from field to finish. From its all-new, super-efficient database engine to its near-universal exporting abilities, 8 delivers the power to simplify and speed your data collection and delivery.

Speed, GUI, and a feel for the road

The new engine has cut file sizes by an amazing 60%, but that’s just what’s under the hood. Its new graphical user interface and intuitive operation are where the rubber meets the road. Icon driven, with no more than four clicks to get to any operation, 8 helps you quickly negotiate the trickiest turns—both on the controller and onboard. Real-time re-computation of recorded data puts an end to time-wasting pit stops.

Advanced Import/Export, Coding, and Setup


TopSURV works seamlessly with leading office software solutions, including civilcad, Carlson and 12D to make transferring files between field and office quick and easy.  Its new station offset and string list features bring added versatility and efficiency to setup and operation.
