The base price is $4125 (US) or if you need greater GPS accuracy, you can buy it bundled with Trimble’s GPS Pathfinder ProXT or ProXH bluetooth connected GPS receivers for $5495 or $6495, respectively. And you might want a few accessories, like an office docking station (pictured at left for $749), vehicle charger ($189), ruggedized keyboard ($395) and some other things as well. I don’t do any GIS stuff, but I presume you’ll need some kind of Trimble software to manage your GPS data collection efforts, that can add up quickly as well. If you want one like I do and happen to have $5-10K to blow, check out the Yuma Ruggedized Tablet PC at the Trimble Store.
