ProStar Holdings, a provider ofPrecision Mapping Solutions, has announced the successful integration of its flagship product, PointMan, into the Vivax Metrotech vLoc3 with integrated RTK (Real-Time Kinematic) technology. The integration with the vLoc3 RTK-Pro creates the first utility locate device with an integrated RTK GNSS receiver running on PointMan. This integration will provide centimetre accuracy of the precise location of buried utilities in real-time without an external GPS/GNSS receiver. The Vivax Metrotech vLoc3 RTK-Pro receiver is the first to add RTK (Real-Time Kinematic) GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) accuracy to a utility locator. Using the RTK-Pro internal cellular module with 4G LTE capabilities, the operator now can connect to the NTRIP RTK caster that provides RTCM 3 corrections.
