1 Receiver will operate normally to those temperature limits. Internal batteries will
operate from –20 °C to +48 °C
2 Accuracy and reliability may be subject to anomalies such as multipath,
obstructions, satellite geometry, and atmospheric conditions. Always follow
recommended survey practices.
3 Depends on SBAS system performance.
4 May be affected by atmospheric conditions, signal multipath, and satellite
geometry. Initialization reliability is continuously monitored to ensure highest
6 Bluetooth type approvals are country specific. For more information, contact your
local Trimble office or representative.
8 Galileo Commercial Authorization
Receiver technology having Galileo capability to operate in the Galileo frequency
bands and using information from the Galileo system for future operational
satellites is restricted in the publicly available Galileo open Service Signal-In-Space
Interface Control document (GAL OS SIS ICD) and is not currently authorized for
commercial use.
Receiver technology that tracks the GIOVE-A and GIOVE-B test satellites uses
information that is unrestricted in the public domain in the GIOVE A + B Navigation
Signals-In-Space Interface Control document. Receiver technology having
developmental GIOVE-A and B capability is intended for signal evaluation and test
9 Networked RTK PPM values are referenced to the closest physical base station
