Trimble Positions Software Suite Updates February 2016

Trimble has just released a new package update to the Trimble Positions Suite.  The new Trimble Positions Suite has added support for Trimble high-accuracy GNSS receivers using Esri ArcGIS for Windows Mobile and ArcPad technology, and provides deeper Esri integration for users of Trimble TerraFlex software and Trimble TerraSync software.

“In addition to adding support for our latest receivers, we tried hard in this release to address the needs of the TerraSync customer looking for a more robust workflow to and from their Esri geodatabase. We were also able to bring TerraFlex workflow functionality up to the level of the standalone TerraFlex Desktop add-in thereby eliminating the need for customers to use 2 separate ArcMap add-ins.”

– Matthew Morris  (Trimble Positions Development Team)

  • Trimble Positions Desktop add-in v10.4.0.1 (See the Release Notes)
  • Trimble Positions Mobile extension v10.2.1.2
  • Trimble Positions Mobile Project Center extension v10.2.1.2
