Field Software Compatible with iGage and CHC receivers


iGage and CHC GNSS receivers are compatible with four field software solutions:

X-Pad
Field Genius
LandStar7
Carlson SurvCE / SurvPC.

Between these packages there is excellent support for these field hardware collector platforms:

  • Windows Mobile devices: like Juniper Systems Allegro 2

  • Windows 10 Tablets: like the Juniper Systems Mesa 3, Microsoft Surface Go

  • Android Devices: multitude of tablets and phones

In addition, several other solutions can be utilized by enabling standard NMEA sentence output via the Bluetooth interface. ESRI Collector on Android devices works using this method.
