CHC Navigation (CHCNAV) announced the availability of the i73+ Pocket GNSS receiver. The i73+ is a compact, powerful and versatile GNSS receiver with an integrated UHF modem which can be used indifferently as a base station or rover.
Powered by 624 full GNSS channels and the latest iStar technology, it delivers survey-grade accuracy in all job site configurations. The i73+ has a built-in transceiver radio module compatible with major radio protocols, making it a perfect portable built-in UHF base and rover kit with fewer accessories. The i73+ is a highly productive NTRIP rover when used with a handheld controller or tablet and connected to a GNSS RTK network via CHCNAV LandStar field software.
The integrated advanced 624-channel GNSS technology takes advantage of GPS, Glonass, Galileo and BeiDou, in particular the latest BeiDou III signal, and provides robust data quality at all times. The i73+ extends GNSS surveying capabilities while maintaining centimeter-level survey-grade accuracy.
With its IMU compensation ready in 3 seconds, the i73+ delivers 3 cm accuracy at up to 30 degrees pole tilt, increasing point measurement efficiency by 20% and stakeout by 30%. Surveyors are able to extend their working boundary near trees, walls, and buildings without the use of a total station or offset measurement tools.
