Trimble Recon Handheld

Ultra-rugged handheld field computer
The new-generation Trimble® Recon® handheld is as tough as ever. With an IP67 rating, it’s impervious to water and dust, and inside the rugged casing it’s packed with new connectivity options. As well as increased memory, and an industry-standard, open operating system, you now have the option of built-in Bluetooth® and wireless LAN.
The Recon handheld features a high-performance 400 MHz processor, built-in Bluetooth wireless technology, and built-in wireless LAN. The system provides two CompactFlash (CF) slots, letting you add peripherals such as GPS cards, barcode scanners, or memory cards.
You can use Bluetooth to connect wirelessly to other devices such as a laser rangefinder, a mobile phone for connection to the Internet, or Trimble’s GPS Pathfinder® receivers. And if you are within range of a WiFi network, the built-in wireless LAN in your Recon handheld makes it very easy to send and receive data. As soon as you arrive at a WiFi hotspot, such as your work depot, you can quickly and securely transfer large amounts of data into the network.
Cellular connectivity can be added to the Recon handheld via the TDL 3G cellular modem. Connecting via wireless LAN or Bluetooth, the TDL 3G provides continuous network/internet access to real-time map data, web-based services, and live update of field information.
The Recon handheld is powered by the most advanced operating system available Windows – Mobile® version 6 – so you can choose to run the application that best suits you, from the widest range of software. And because Windows Mobile 6 provides persistent storage, your data and applications are secure, even in the event of power loss.
Mobile technology is changing fast, but the Recon handheld is designed with the future in mind: its open operating system, expandable storage and flexible connectivity deliver all you need, and more, in the most rugged, reliable solution available.
