Trimble also recently announced Galileo support for its VRS Now correction service. Powered by the Trimble Pivot Platform, VRS Now in Europe fully supports GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS and now, Galileo satellite systems. Galileo support improves network performance and reliability with access to additional satellites, particularly in urban canyons or other harsh environments, according to the company. The increased number of visible satellites provides additional data observations that enhance positioning integrity to better mitigate errors.

“Trimble continues to aggressively expand its VRS Now footprint in Europe,” said Patricia Boothe, general manager of Trimble’s Advanced Positioning Division. “With the addition of correction services in France, Trimble VRS Now covers over 179 million square kilometers (732 million square miles) across 10 countries.”

Availability
VRS Now coverage is available throughout most of France as well as Belgium, The Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Luxembourg, The Netherlands and Sweden, using a compatible GNSS receiver or display. Subscriptions are available through Trimble’s Authorized Business Partners or Trimble’s online store.
