Trimble Adds Galileo and BeiDou to VRS Now Service in North America

Galileo and BeiDou observation data are now included with Trimble VRS Now subscriptions in North America.

The addition of the Galileo and BeiDou constellations allow users to make use of more satellites, enabling more robust performance when working in harsh GNSS environments such as in urban canyons and under canopy.

Trimble VRS Now in North America fully supports GPS, GLONASS, QZSS and now, Galileo and BeiDou satellite systems.

The service is powered by the Trimble Pivot Platform GNSS real-time network software, Trimble said. As a true five-constellation solution, it delivers improved real-time positioning performance for customers in North America.

VRS Now is designed for surveying, mapping and GIS, construction and agriculture professionals who require high-accuracy positioning in their workflows.

Adding Galileo and BeiDou observation data provides significant benefits by enabling users to:

  • Operate in environments where traditional GPS + GLONASS systems’ performances are limited
  • Improve accuracy and reliability of GNSS solutions
  • Minimize the effects of multipath and interference

“By including Galileo and BeiDou data, customers can achieve greater accuracy and positioning performance than ever before,” said Patricia Boothe, vice president of Trimble’s Advanced Positioning Division.

With the addition of North America, Trimble VRS Now networks worldwide now support all five GNSS constellations. Besides North America, coverage is available throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand when using a compatible GNSS receiver or display.

Subscriptions are available through Trimble’s Authorized Business Partners or Trimble’s online store at

VRS Now provides positioning professionals with instant access to real-time kinematic (RTK) and post-processing (PP) corrections using a network of permanent (fixed) continuously operating reference stations (CORS). Professional management and monitoring 24/7 by a global operations team provides peak performance and high reliability, Trimble said.
