  1. Depends on SBAS system performance.
  2. Accuracy and reliability may be subject to anomalies such as multipath, obstructions, satellite geometry, interference and atmospheric conditions. Always follow recommended practices.
  3. CenterPoint RTX accuracy is typically achieved within 5 minutes in select regions, and within 30 minutes worldwide. FieldPoint RTX accuracy is typically achieved within 5 minutes in select regions, and within 15 minutes worldwide. RangePoint RTX and ViewPoint RTX accuracy is typically achieved within 5 minutes worldwide.
  4. Receiver accuracy and convergence time varies based on GNSS constellation health, level of multipath, and proximity to obstructions such as large trees and buildings.
  5. Bluetooth type approvals are country-specific. For more information, contact your local Trimble office or representative.
