The Trimble® GeoExplorer® 6000 series takes GNSS productivity to a whole new level. Bringing together the essential functionality for high-accuracy field work in one device, the GeoXH™ handheld delivers real-time decimeter
(10 cm / 4 inch) accuracy positioning, high quality photo capture, and integrated Internet connectivity options. Together with the latest field software enhancements and GNSS innovations—including Trimble Floodlight™ satellite shadow reduction technology—the GeoXH handheld establishes a new standard for GNSS system performance and handheld data capture
For utility companies, municipalities, environmental management agencies, and many other organisations, timely accurate information is paramount to good decision making. The GeoXH handheld is the best high accuracy hardware platform for any organization needing to map information at decimeter (10 cm / 4 inch) accuracy.
In conjunction with a Trimble Mapping & GIS field software application or a custom application developed by a Trimble Mapping & GIS Business Partner, the GeoXH handheld is the ideal platform for:
Utilities: Underground asset mapping and inspection, water network modelling, as-built mapping of lines/cable installations, and incident/outage reporting.
Local government: High-density urban asset mapping, underground asset relocation, municipal asset inventory and inspection.
The GeoXH handheld is an ideal solution in any industry requiring a mobile decimeter accuracy mapping data collection and maintenance solution.

220 channel GNSS receiver with real-time H-Star technology
Decimeter accuracy and fast convergence
The GeoXH handheld is equipped with a 220 channel GNSS receiver capable of tracking GPS and GLONASS satellites together with an integrated dual-frequency (L1/L2) GNSS antenna. In conjunction with Trimble field software, the GeoXH handheld uses Trimble H-Star™ technology to deliver decimeter accuracy in the field, eliminating the need for back-office postprocessing, and giving the confidence that the job is done right while still on site.
Trimble Floodlight satellite shadow reduction
More positions and increased accuracy in tough environments
With Trimble Floodlight satellite shadow reduction technology, the GeoXH handheld receiver can compute positions even with very weak satellite signals. Floodlight technology increases the number of positions that are gathered in difficult locations, and boosts accuracy in those places where normally only low accuracy data is available. With the GeoXH handheld, field crews can now work with fewer disruptions, meaning better data, faster, at less cost. Read more: Floodlight technology brief.
Set and forget GNSS configuration for better results in all conditions
The GeoXH handheld is fully supported by the latest versions of Trimble field software, which include seamless out-of-the-box receiver configuration and Smart Settings. Using Smart Settings, the GNSS receiver can calculate the optimal accuracy each second without imposing strict masks, and without sacrificing productivity. There is no need to adjust settings from one location to the next—simply activate Smart Settings, and let the receiver do the rest.
4.2" polarized display
Crystal clear text, photos, and maps—even in direct sunlight
The GeoXH handheld includes a sunlight-optimized display designed specifically for outdoor operation. It maintains exceptional clarity in all outdoor conditions, including direct sunlight. Text is crisp and easy to read. Background maps and photos are rich and vibrant. At 4.2" (10.7 cm), the display is also big, so the touch panel is spacious and easier to control.
Integrated 5 megapixel autofocus camera
Capture high quality photos and link directly to features
A photo is often the best way to capture information about an asset, event, or site. The GeoXH handheld includes a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with geotagging capability. The camera can be controlled by the TerraSync™ software and other third-party applications, so photo capture and linking of images to GIS features is seamless and simple to integrate with existing data capture workflows.

Integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and optional 3.5G cellular modem
Work online, anywhere, cable-free
With the GeoXH handheld, wireless connectivity options including cellular, Wi-Fi®, and Bluetooth® technology ensure that field workers can remain in contact with the office and each other, even from remote locations. An optional integrated 3.5G cellular modem allows continuous network and Internet access to real-time map data, web-based services, VRS™ corrections, and live update of field information. Bluetooth technology also enables wireless connection to other external devices such as Bluetooth-enabled laser range finders, barcode scanners, or underground pipe locators.
Lightning-fast processing power and expandable storage
Work with large, complex datasets without compromising performance
The GeoXH handheld is powered by a super-fast OMAP-3503 series processor and 256 MB RAM. With 2 GB of internal storage and the capacity to add an additional 32 GB via SDHC card, the GeoXH handheld has the capacity and power needed to work with high resolution maps and the most complex datasets.
Field swappable battery
10 hours operation on a single charge and swap-and-go battery replacement in the field
The Lithium-Ion battery can provide up to 10 hours of GNSS operation on a single charge and can be swapped on-the-go without shutting down the device—enabling near-continuous operation and minimizing field worker downtime.
Windows Mobile 6.5
A proven mobile platform with the latest features and functionality
Powered by Windows Mobile® 6.5 Professional edition, the GeoXH handheld is fully compatible with the latest releases of Trimble Mapping & GIS field software as well as a large variety of third-party data collection and maintenance applications.
Designed for work
Reliable rugged design
The fully ruggedized IP65 construction is designed to withstand the toughest treatment. Wherever field workers go, they can take the GeoXH handheld with the confidence that the equipment can handle the toughest conditions.

1. SBAS (Satellite Based Augmentation System). Includes WAAS available in North America only, EGNOS available in Europe only and MSAS available in Japan only.
2. HRMS refers to Horizontal Root Mean Squared accuracy, 1-sigma (68%). Except in conditions where most GNSS signals are affected by trees, or buildings, or other objects. The following factors increase the availability of specified H-Star accuracy: availability of GPS & GLONASS data at the base station(s) used for corrections, longer elapsed time tracking uninterrupted L1/L2 carrier phase data, use of the optional external Tornado antenna, tracking of more satellites with L2 measurements, shorter distance to the base station(s), and use of more (than one) base stations for postprocessing. Specified H-Star accuracy can normally be achieved for baseline lengths of 100 km or less. H-Star accuracy is typically achieved within 2 minutes. 45 minute carrier postprocessed accuracy is limited to data collected within 10 km of the base station. Except when using VRS corrections, accuracy varies with proximity to base station by +1 ppm for code postprocessing and real-time. Carrier postprocessed accuracy varies with proximity to base station by +2 ppm.
3. Tested by Trimble with default system settings at 21 °C ambient. Actual run time will vary with conditions of use.
4. 3.5G edition handhelds only. The GeoXH 3.5G edition handheld is PTCRB certified and can operate on supported networks that do not require carrier certification. Consult with your local reseller for more information.
5. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi type approvals are country specific. GeoExplorer 6000 series handhelds have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi approval in the U.S. and in most European countries. For further information please consult your local reseller.
6. NMEA output is an optional upgrade.
