iCON GPS 70 T Benefits

Some of the biggest benefits of using the iCON GPS 70 T for measuring stakeout points are its speed and efficiency. In traditional surveying, keeping the pole level and vertical are a must; however, the iCON GPS 70 T eliminates the need for leveling thanks to permanent tilt compensation features and a resistance to magnetic interference.

All of these features combine to create a piece of GPS surveying equipment that is ready to go in moments, no matter how rugged the terrain may be.

Beyond increasing the speed with which you can take field measurements, the Leica iCON GPS 70 T also increases accuracy by reducing the possibility for human error.

With greater accuracy and efficiency, this also means that you can take measurements in locations where a traditional approach would be less-than-ideal, or even dangerous. Being able to pay attention to your surroundings while surveying ultimately increases safety on your construction sites, which is a win-win.

What Industries Benefit From Utilizing The Leica iCON GPS 70 T?

Building construction and heavy construction are two of the major industries that can really get the most out of what the Leica iCON GPS 70 T has to offer.
