The best High-Accuracy GNSS Receiver designed specifically for the iPad/iPhone

The iSXBlue II+ GNSS is a palm-sized receiver that delivers real-time, high accuracy performance using GPS/GLONASS/Beidou satellites and free SBAS corrections for your iPad/iPhone. It’s battery-powered lightweight design makes it the ideal choice of a variety of mapping apps including GIS, Forestry, Mining, Utilities, Agriculture, Surveying and Environmental, at a price you can afford.

Go Real-time, All the Time with your iPad/iPhone!

The iSXBlue II+ GNSS uses innovative technologies that delivers high accuracy in real time, all the time. Utilizing both GPS and GLONASS satellites, the iSXBlue II+ GNSS will work where GPS receivers struggle, such as in the forest, around buildings and other difficult mapping environments.

New battery delivers 14-16 hours autonomy.

SXblue is pleased to announce a battery upgrade for its receivers. For the last couple of years we have been collecting our clients’ feedback and working on a new, state-of-the-art battery design. The new battery is equipped with 4 Li-ion rechargeable cells that boost its capacity from 3900 mAh to 6000 mAh. It boosts the receiver’s autonomy by up to 50%, greatly increasing its field work efficiency. When fully charged, the battery can last up to 16 hours depending on the SXblue model and bluetooth connectivity.

GPS + GLONASS + SBAS = Revolutionary iSXBlue II+ GNSS Receiver

Until now, SBAS users couldn’t enjoy the tremendous benefit offered by adding GLONASS satellites since SBAS doesn’t support GLONASS. However, new technology employed by the iSXBlue II+ GNSS allows it to use both GPS and GLONASS satellites for high perfomance, real-time mapping accuracy using SBAS. No post-processing is needed to achieve the accuracy you expect.

Work in More Places Than Ever Before

We’ve heard it over and over. Once you start using GLONASS, you’ll be addicted. By using GLONASS satellites, your productivity immediately improves.

With both GPS and GLONASS satellites, you’ll have nearly twice as many satellites in view, meaning you won’t have to wait for the high accuracy data you want. The iSXBlue II+ GNSS maximizes your productivity by working directly within your iOS application such as Esri’s Collector for ArcGis, ArcGis for iOS, TerraGo, Amigo, Cloud, iGeoTrack, ICMT Gis, Fulcrum, etc.

Coast and SureTrack maintain sub-meter DGNSS positioning for 40 minutes after correction loss.

A Long Term Solution

Because the iSXBlue II+ GNSS doesn’t have a built-in computer, it can’t become obsolete. On one project, connect it to your iPhone. On the next project, connect it to your iPad. Android? Windows Mobile? No problem.
