This is the smallest and lightest data recovery system that we can supply for you. Advantages include automated data download to base stations without your presence if that helps you. The base stations can be left in the field for up to 5 days, no problem with inclement weather or battery life.
Any time the GPS device is within range of the base station all previously un-transmitted GPS data will be copied over onto the base station's memory. Please click on the How it Works button for more information.
Because the communication between the base station and the GPS device is fully automated your task is to simply get the two devices within range of each other. The maximum range is 40 meters but this can be less depending upon conditions. Your best chance to maximizing range is to have the base station elevated up to 5 meters above the GPS device. For example, in our range testing we use a simple mast of PVC and attach the base station to that mast. It is really simple and effective.
The base station can be hand carried into the field or you can leave it in the field. The base station has a rechargeable battery with a 5 day battery life operating 24 hours per day. Multiple base stations can be purchased and used to created a "field of download" thereby effectively increasing the area over which data will be automatically downloaded.
