MONTREAL, CANADA — Eos Positioning Systems®, Inc. (Eos), the world’s leading manufacturer of affordable high-accuracy GNSS receivers for the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) market, announced today the release of a new, innovative product line of high-accuracy Bluetooth® GNSS receivers: the Arrow Series®.
The Arrow Series® are a set of high-accuracy GNSS receivers supporting real-time field positioning at the submeter to centimeter level. They are compatible with all smartphones and tablet computers, including iOS, Android, Windows, and Windows Mobile, through Bluetooth®.
“After spending more than 10 years designing high-accuracy Bluetooth® GNSS receivers, Eos has set the new standard for high-accuracy. With the Arrow Series®, users can work across all mobile platforms, no matter if that’s iOS, Android or Windows.”

More About the High-Accuracy GNSS Receivers, the Arrow Series®
Eos’s entry level product, the Arrow Lite, will set a new standard for submeter GPS at an affordable entry point.
“You won’t find a better value for a high-accuracy, submeter GPS receiver that’s Bluetooth® compatible to work on any device,” Lauture said.
More advanced Arrow Series® receivers are being introduced and will employ dual frequency and multi-constellation tracking for all current constellations (e.g., GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou, QZSS). This enables fast centimeter RTK performance.
The Arrow Series® also support OmniSTAR’s HP, XP and G2 service for world-wide, real-time decimeter positioning.
Thanks to universal Bluetooth® connectivity, a user can interface with any brand of smartphone or tablet, whether it’s iOS, Android, or Windows-based.
“The Arrow receivers can communicate up to one kilometer from the mobile device,” Lauture said.
In addition, Arrow Series® receivers have been optimized to run all day on battery power. The battery pack is field-replaceable and rechargeable separately. It contains smart charging logic, so special and expensive battery chargers are not needed.
Moreover, all Arrow Series® receivers have been designed to meet IP-67 specifications for immersion in water. They are completely dust-proof, to survive in the harshest environments.
The Arrow Series® receiver product line is targeted at professionals in the mapping and GIS communities who require high-accuracy location in the environmental, agricultural, utility (e.g., electric, gas, water), pipeline, archeological, surveying, machine-control, government (i.e., federal, state, provincial, local), and other sectors.
