Pocket Locator

GIS4Mobile has developed a mobile-friendly GNSS receiver.

A market study has shown that there is a need for a new type of GPS that meets these requirements:

  • Lightweight (140 grams)
  • Small - 6x9 cm.
  • RTK Accuracy - A true RTK GNSS receiver that with correction service can provide accuracies down to cm level.
  • Precision 75cm without RTK.
  • Price 850 € / 995 $.

During 2020/2021, GIS4Mobile has worked to find and develop the components that will be included in the unit.

Version 1 is on the market and can be ordered from GIS4Mobile.

Pocket Locator is based on the well -known u-blox F9P chip, and uses both GPS (L1 / L2), Glonass, Beidou and Galileo. In addition, it utilizes DGPS via SBAS (Satellite Based Augmentation System) which improves the precision all the way down to 75 cm without RTK corrections, and which works in difficult environments with trees etc.

The following satellite constellations are used:

• GPS & GLONASS: L1 and L2C / L2OC
• Galileo
• BeiDou

It is RoHS compliant and it is CE marked .

Pocket Locator is easily connected via Bluetooth . In GIS4Mobile's app's, select External GPS-> Bluetooth, and off you go. If you have purchased RTK corrections, for example from RTKConnect, the username etc. must be entered in a window in the GIS4Mobile app, under Ntrip Settings. If you do not use the GIS4Mobile app, a special guide will be provided.

NOTE! If you have an iPhone, the procedure is a little different, see the documentation.

And it's not just for GIS4Mobile's app. If in doubt, contact us, or ask to borrow a Pocket Locator for testing.

  • It is light - 170 grams, and can fit in a jacket pocket.
  • The built-in battery is 2.6 Ah, and lasts for at least 10 hours of work.
  • Accuracy down to a few cm.
  • Affordable, at only  850€ / 995 $.

Compatibility

On Android devices:

The following apps are currently being tested:

  • GIS4Mobile's LedningsInfo app.
  • GIS4Mobile's GIS4Mobile app.

Can also be used with all apps on the Android platform that support GPS. See special instructions.

On iPhone / iPad , the following apps are currently being tested:

  • GIS4Mobile's LedningsInfo app.
  • GIS4Mobile's GIS4Mobile app.
  • ESRI's Survey123 app.

Download the special guide for iPhone / iPad connection.

Improved accuracy with RTK

To achieve the best accuracy, an RTK correction signal must be attached. We recommend RTKConnect (in Denmark) which is the best in Danish coordinates. With RTKConnect, accuracy can go down to the centimeter level.

Try RTKConnect. Write the code 'gis4mobile' in the comments field when you create a trial subscription - then you get a 30-day trial period . Click here to sign up .

Outside Denmark, contact us for other options. Contact us

Other GPS equipment

Are you interested in traditional surveying equipment / GPS? Contact us to hear about the prices of total stations, or Trimble Catalyst, South, Emlid and other equipment.

Pocket Locator mounted on tablet

Here, the Pocket Locator is mounted on a tablet,

In the GIS4Mobile app, the accuracy is seen at the bottom (this is without RTK).

When this field changes color, it indicates that an external GPS is connected.

The message says:

  • accuracy (here 0.61)
  • number of satellites (12).
  • GPS lock (DGPS). Here would be "RTK" if RTKConnect was connected.
