The Leader in GPS Technology

Good for the long haul.

American President Lines, one of the largest shipping lines in the world, outfitted their latest container ships with Trimble

GPS. These systems can store preprogrammed lists of way- points for their frequently travelled routes. With GPS accuracy, they hold truer courses, stay on tighter sched- ules, and save tons of fuel.

Inslde/Outslde with GPS.

Crowley Maritime is stan- dardizing on Trimble GPS.

Inside tugs working Puget

Sound rely on Trimble accuracy to thread their way through rocky passages.

Outside boats, working along the Alaskan coast and throughout the world, use

GPS to stay on schedule, even in the worst weather.

Ultimate Accuracy. For ultra-precise navigation, a technique called "Differential

GPS" can give you 2-5 meter accuracy. Soon coastlines will be dotted with radio beacons like the one at Montauk N. Y., broadcasting corrections to

GPS receivers in the area.

Only Trimble products come standard with the ability to accept these corrections.

Small box, big reputation.

The Navy used the military version of our portable

TransPak II to locate mines in the Persian

Gulf. According to one Navy commander, it "allowed a success at mine hunting never previously experienced." Closer to home, you can use it in a tender or as a back-up unit.
