Land surveying without GPS accessories is almost impossible. A GNSS receiver and an Android device are just the start when it comes to doing the job efficiently and accurate. We discovered how to make land surveying even easier by desiging and developing accessories that match with our other products. Read all about them on this page.
A full and complete GPS kit consists of:
- A GNSS receiver (check for more details, here)
- An Android device, like the Apglos Armor (according to the specifications, provided here)
- The land survey software Apglos Survey Wizard
And…GPS accessories! It is truly the last piece of the puzzle, we promise you.
We have our own GPS rod. It is called the Apglos Lance (just keeping up with our castletheme). Our GPS rod is 2 meters long and exists of two sections. The sections are joined by a screw connection.
The original bottom of the GPS rod ends in a point. This point can be replaced by a sand foot or a flat foot.
Our GPS rod had a soft hand grip and is lightweight. Which makes it easy to carry.
The Android tablet can be connected to our Apglos Lance. You can do this with our tabletholder the Apglos Claw. The tabletholder can hold all sizes tablets. It makes the GPS kit almost complete.
Casings for GNSS receivers are available. But we wanted to keep everything together and safe. So we came up with a solution where you can put everything in one place, except for the GPS rod. In this way you can carry the whole GPS kit without problems. In the GPS bag fits:
- the GNSS receiver
- the Android tablet, Apglos Armor
- the Apglos Claw
- the chargers for the GNSS receiver and tablet
- the cables for the GNSS receiver and tablet
- extra batteries
We didn’t finish developing GPS accessories with the products mentioned on this page. One of our other developments is a rod connector. It has the same size as a pole point or sand foot. This accessory will turn your GPS rod, the Apglos Lance, into an extension piece of 2 meters.
Very effective when you want to receive more satellite signals.
