With the addition of the simple, lightweight Trimble DA2 GNSS receiver and an on-demand accuracy-based subscription, turn your Android™ or iOS device into a precision mapping, navigation, and measurement tool you can use with any location enabled app or service.

There are some key differences between the DA1 and DA2 hardware – the DA2 is classed as a full GNSS receiver that fits in your pocket – whilst the DA1 is an antenna only solution.
