Trimble Expands Popular Juno GPS Handheld Series with Voice Capability

Mon, 09/13/2010 - 10:24am
SUNNYVALE, Calif., /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble introduced today the new Trimble® Juno™ SD handheld, an addition to the pocket-sized Juno series of durable, lightweight field computing devices with integrated Global Positioning System (GPS) technology.

All Juno series models include integrated GPS, wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) and Bluetooth® connectivity, a 3 Megapixel camera, a 533 MHz processor, 128 MB of onboard memory, a MicroSD/SDHC memory card slot, an all-day battery and a 3.5 inch display. The Juno SD handheld builds on this core functionality with the addition of integrated 3.5G High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) cellular SMS and voice capability.

Using the data transmission capabilities of the Juno SD handheld, mobile workers can access information in the field such as work-orders, map data, reference files, emails, and Internet resources without making a trip to the office. Mobile workers can also update mission critical information in real time that can lead to increased overall data accuracy and productivity.

With the Juno SD handheld, users can now keep in contact using the new cellular voice capabilities, enabling users to call the office for the next job, provide live updates from the field, or make a call in case of an emergency. As a result, the Juno SD handheld eliminates the need to carry a separate mobile phone.

"The Juno SD handheld is the ideal integrated solution for GIS-enabled organizations that require high productivity from their mobile field workforce. It keeps them connected and in touch while removing the need for a separate camera, GPS data collector, PDA, and cellular phone," said Peter Large, general manager of Trimble's Mapping & GIS Division.

"All Juno series handhelds incorporate a high-sensitivity GPS receiver specifically designed to maximize position yields in challenging GPS environments, such as under forest canopy and near buildings in urban areas.

Juno series handheld users can achieve 2 to 5 meter GPS positioning accuracy in real-time with Satellite Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) such as the U.S. Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), European Geostationary Navigation Overlay System (EGNOS), and Japan's Multi-Functional Satellite Augmentation System (MSAS).
