  • Availability: Worldwide
  • High Accuracy: Provides  < 4 cm (1.5") horizontal accuracy*
  • Instant initialization: Full convergence in as quick as 1 minute for CenterPoint < 5 Minute Initialization and < 30 minutes or less for  CenterPoint Standard**
  • Multi-constellation support: GPS, GLONASS and QZSS enabled
  • More uptime: Continue working through correction signal interruptions for up to 200 seconds
  • No base station required: No longer worry about losing radio signal connectivity since a base station is not required for Trimble RTX-based correction services
  • Cost Effective: No additional data or cellular plans required
  • Fast Restart (Agriculture) and Quick Start (Survey): Decrease the standard** initialization time to less than 5 minutes at the beginning of each day by starting your tractor in the same place you shut it off the night before

* All horizontal accuracy specifications are based on in-field performance 95% of the time.

** Receiver convergence time varies based on GNSS constellation health, level of multipath, and proximity to obstructions such as large trees and buildings. 

Dependent on receiver capabilities and user’s geographic location.

RTX Satellite

CenterPoint RTX < 5 Minute Initialization is currently available via satellite in a central swath of North America and throughout much Western and Central Europe. Refer to the map below to see if it is available in your area.

RTX Fast

CenterPoint RTX delivered via cellular is available worldwide.

RTX cellular

Trimble CenterPoint RTX correction service is powered by Trimble RTX technology. CenterPoint RTX leverages real-time data from a global tracking station network along with innovative positioning and compression algorithms to compute and relay satellite orbit, satellite clock, and other system adjustments to the receiver, resulting in the real time high accuracies. These adjustments are transmitted to the receiver via satellite (where coverage is available) and via IP (Internet Protocol) worldwide.

Cellular Delivery
RTX correction streams are delivered directly to your Trimble receiver via a cellular link; allowing you to calculate your position. To receive the correction messages, a receiver that has cellular connectively (or connected to a device that has cellular connectivity) is required.

Satellite Delivery
When turned on, your receiver tracks the RTX (L-band) satellite as well as every other satellite in its field of view (including GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and QZSS). From the L-band satellite, you will receive the RTX correction stream that allows you to calculate your position in real time.
