Radiodetection’s new Precision Locate Android companion App: easy to use real time map and share tool

Radiodetection is pleased to announce the release of its Android* mapping app compatible with the RD7100 RF marker locator range and the RD8100 cable, pipe or RF marker range.

RD Map™ uses Bluetooth connectivity to create, in real time*, a detailed map of buried utilities. Each survey measurement parameter is appended to the GPS positional information obtained by the locator, external or Android device to map the route of the tracked utility. Map files (CSV or KML) can then be shared via e-mail or any compatible messaging system.

Each utility route and survey point is conveniently marked using industry standard color conventions (APWA color coding).

Mobile phones and tablets can be mounted on the locator using the optional arm and bracket system, which can be easily and quickly attached and removed from any precision locators.  The arm and bracket system conveniently positions your Android device, giving the operator immediate feedback without impacting the locate operation.

By creating a map in real time, the operator is able to correct any inaccurate GPS position immediately, whether such inaccuracy is caused by reflecting signals, weather conditions or limited view of the sky.

RD Map provides measurement tools to estimate the distance of your position relative to the edge of a pavement, manhole or any other suitable reference point.

* Requires Android 5.1 or higher and data connectivity. Not available in countries where Google Maps is blocked.
