We just took delivery of our new Trimble 5700. The boss man finally did it. It was time to replace the old 3500. I am like a kid at christmas. I get to take it out to the baseline today and see what it can do.

For $30,000 a pop (we got 2) It had better be impressive.

I am not trying to bragg, but once you really take the time to really understand GPS, you can do an amazing amount of data manipulation.

Mntnman,
Out of curiosity what type of work do you do to use a $30k GPSR?

Surveying. Weather or not the equipment really costs that much, that is what they charge and that is what they get. You get more than just the reciever. The $30k includes the pole, reciever, antenna, data collector, all the cables, and a copy of Trimble Geomatics Office, which is a very usefull program. You need two complete units to do static work, and one complete unit, and a rover to do RTK work.

And everyone wonders why surveyors charge so much. Its an expensive line of work.
