Geneq Inc. has announced the SXPad 1000P, a rugged handheld GPS data collector, which the company says is low-cost.
The SXPad 1000P is suitable for mobile GIS users in applications ranging from water, electric, gas utilities, transportation, mining, agriculture and forestry.
The high-performance 1000-megahertz device is designed to give professionals the power needed to work with maps and large data sets in the field. Its waterproof seal (IP67) and surviving 5-foot (1.5-meter) drops to concrete make the SXPad 1000P ideal for the outdoors. Its 3.7-inch color touchscreen (full VGA) is sharp and is sunlight readable.
Standard features include a battery life of more than 10 hours on a charge, 8-GB internal storage, slots for MicroSD cards and SIM cards as well as Windows Mobile 6.5.
The SXPad 1000P offers features typically seen in more costly mobile devices, the company said. These include 3.5G cellular modem, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, video capture, a 5-megapixel camera and an internal GPS receiver.
The SXPad 1000P is optimized for GPS/GIS field data collection using its 1-3 meter accuracy internal GPS receiver or one of Geneq’s high-performance SXBlue GPS receivers for sub-meter and centimeter-level accuracy.
