Industrial Strength Mapping Solution

MobileMapper™ 6 combines professional GIS data collection and navigation software in a compact handheld GPS receiver.  Enhanced by WAAS¹ and EGNOS² Satellite-Based Augmentation Systems, it provides real-time accuracy to within 2-5 meters.  With Post-Processed Differential Correction, it delivers sub-meter accuracy for half the cost of comparable solutions. 

MobileMapper™ 6 GPS engine provides professional accuracy in real time and post-processing. This SBAS-enabled high-sensitivity GPS receiver computes and updates your position even in difficult conditions, such as under tree canopy and in urban surroundings. 

It comes with Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 operating system, a color touch-screen, and it has Bluetooth for wireless connectivity. You can collect GIS/GPS points and maps via the GIS application of your choice: either a third party software or the proprietary Ashtech MobileMapper Field software. You can also navigate, get your direction from the integrated e-compass, and communicate wirelessly. 

Easy to Use:

Field-proven Rugged Design MobileMapper™ 6 fits comfortably in one hand and weighs less than eight ounces (224g). It is made for intensive outdoor use and can be dropped in the dirt or into water again and again without harm. It keeps working, and you won't lose any data. 

Two AA batteries provide over eight hours of continuous use.  There are no expensive battery packs and recharging units to purchase.  Maps and data can be easily transferred between the handheld rover unit and your PC using a serial or USB cable. The removable SD memory card provides unlimited expandability and versatility in the field. 

Handheld rover unit is rubber-armored, highly shock resistant and waterproof to IPX7 standard, making it ready to perform in even the harshest work environments. It can withstand the hazards of your professional fieldwork while your investment is protected by its high durability. 

Feature-rich Mapping Device Embedded speaker and microphone make it easy to record audio files, for a rich archive of locations and projects. You can take pictures using the integrated 2-megapixel digital camera, use the e-compass to determine the camera orientation at the time the picture is taken, and use other Windows Office Mobile applications, all with a single device. 

MobileMapper™ 6 is the ideal solution for public safety personnel, utility workers, foresters, farmers, resource managers and anyone who manages positioning assets in the field. Use MobileMapper 6 to create or update maps for analysis and storage in a Geographic Information System.
