Eos Positioning Systems Releases Eos Tools Pro GEOID support and battery monitor updates

The update includes additional GEOID model support for Australia, Brazil, and Sweden; an in-app Arrow GNSS Receiver “Battery Status Monitor”; and Altitude tab fixes for iOS users

MONTREAL, Canada—March 27—Eos Positioning Systems, Inc.® (Eos), the pioneering provider of submeter Bluetooth® GPS and GNSS solutions, today announced a new version (i.e., updates) of Eos Tools Pro for Android (v 1.49.35) and iOS (v 1.75 / build 204).  Both versions will support additional GEOID models (real-time orthometric height conversions) and both will include a new real-time, in-app “Battery Status Monitor” feature. The iOS version also includes a UI fix that eliminates an Altitude tab issue.

“We are excited to offer an even better GNSS monitoring application,” Eos CTO Jean-Yves Lauture said. “These updates will add value for all current Eos Tools Pro users and expand the capabilities of our international customers.”

Details about the updates are as follow.

Eos Tools Pro for Android (v 1.49.35)

The newest version of Eos Tools Pro for Android (v 1.49.35) adds two main updates:

1. New GEOID models

Four additional GEOID models have been added for Australia, Brazil and Sweden, including the following:

  • Australia — AUSGeoid09
  • Australia — AUSGeoid2020
  • Brazil — MAPGEO2015
  • Sweden — SWEN17

Users in these countries may now simply select the appropriate GEOID model from within Eos Tools Pro by using the Altitude tab. They may then begin collecting submeter or centimeter-accuracy orthometric heights (Z values, aka elevations) in real time.

2. Added “Battery Status Monitor” for Arrow GNSS Receiver Battery Monitoring

The new Android version 1.49.35 also includes a brand-new Arrow “Battery Status Monitor”. (Please note that using this new, free feature will require the use of Arrow battery with Rev. 5 and/or above. The revision of your battery can be found on the battery sticker label on the back of your receiver.)

The Battery Status Monitor allows users to check how much Arrow charge is left on their receiver directly within Eos Tools Pro, without having to check the GNSS receiver itself.
