GNSS Receiver R2

Geolocation Receiver R2

The R2 location receiver provides high-precision positioning data (between sub-meter and centimeter accuracy) in a robust and very compact housing.

It is easy to use and can communicate via Bluetooth with any smart phone, tablet, PC, or rugged field terminal, as well as Trimble controllers.
It also includes a web server and a WiFi link that allow it to be operated from a simple web browser.

The R2 receiver supports multiple satellite constellations (GPS, Glonass, Galileo, etc.) It can use different correction sources (SBAS, RTK, RTX, etc.) and is thus able to provide accurate real-time positions worldwide without post-processing.

The data collected can be integrated into Trimble software and GIS, or into third-party applications (Arc GIS, JMap, etc.)


For precise positioning of equipment or particular sites, in connection with mapping and GIS tools, in various fields of the public or private sector, environmental agencies, administrations and companies.

This may involve urban equipment (buried pipes and cables, manholes, fire hydrants, valves, etc.), forest surveys, watercourses, etc., for asset management, maintenance or inventory applications.

The R2 receiver is also intended for surveyors of precision topographic surveying operations (roads, mines, construction sites, etc.)

It can be combined with various equipment offered by Trimble such as radios, controllers, ruggedized terminals, etc.
