Getac introduces GPS-enabled handheld PDA

Pinpoint navigation support for improved location-based productivity

By CBR Staff Writer

Getac has introduced its new PS535F, a fully rugged GPS-enabled handheld personal digital assistant with on board camera, altimeter and e-compass.

According to the company, the new features will enable field-based employees to capture field data on-site and transmit that data back to headquarters in real time. In addition, the PS535F will provide pinpoint navigation support for improved location-based productivity, which is critical with search-and-rescue missions.

Getac claims that the PS535F handheld personal digital assistant (PDA) is perfectly suited for GIS surveying applications across different sectors including utilities, oil and gas, forest patrol, and surveying and mapping of geology and mineral resources. The built-in camera enables instant visual data capture in the field, and the 3.5 VGA touch screen display with sunlight readable technology enhances the viewing quality of graphic-intensive files and detailed maps, even in bright sunlight or snowy conditions, the company added.

In addition to its GPS system, the product’s built-in altimeter and e-compass provide advanced navigation features such as fixed positioning of longitude, latitude and altitude, as well as the ability to provide directional relations between the targeted subject and the user’s position, according to Getac.

The PS535F also features wireless connectivity options, including integrated Bluetooth v2.0 and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, said Getac. The PS535F features Windows Mobile 6.1 software for access to e-mail, the internet, texting and other means of mobile communications.
