Catalyst Accuracy in Peru

  • 1.  Catalyst Accuracy in Peru

    Does anyone have any insights as to how accurate Catalyst can be in Peru?  RTXAL (Latin America) is available in Peru. I have a Catalyst kit (DA2 antenna and a TDC600) and will be mapping in a remote area in highland Peru that does not have internet service. Internet is available in the nearby town.  

     I would like to use the highest accuracy subscription possible (Catalyst 1cm) for mapping in Peru, but I realize this may not be possible, since Peru is neither in a VRS now region nor is it in an RTX fast region. Is it fair to assume that 1cm accuracy is not possible? With Trimble Corrections Hub in a remote area with no internet service, what accuracy can I reasonably assume I can get? 

    In 2016, I used an R2 and Centerpoint RTX to take points at 4cm accuracy. Is this not possible with Catalyst?

    Any insights would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Hi Jacob,

    You should get accuracy at least as good as your previous experience with the R2 using RTX. As long as you are able to download sign-in and your Catalyst license while online you are then able to use Trimble Catalyst offline for up to 30 days at a time. You can see the Catalyst DA2 Web page on here, I would especially recommend you look at the FAQ.

    Best regards,
