A few years ago, Nick Schaer discovered Avenza Maps Pro, a mobile app for iOS and Android with powerful GPS-enabled mapping capabilities, and the option to use on virtually any smartphone or tablet. Avenza Maps Pro connects via Bluetooth with a variety of Trimble devices including the R1 and R2 to transmit more accurate GPS locations into the app. This allows for better location, navigation and collection of data within the app.
