The Hybrid+ Module

Survey with GPS and total station together.

Follow Me

An alternative to optical tracking, Follow Me continuously turns the total station toward the prism using the GNSS location. Say goodbye to stray reflectors and lengthy searches, and say hello to a total station that's ready when you are.

Smart Lock

Use smart lock for a smarter survey. The software automatically detects when you're slowing to take a measurement and locks on the prism, so it's ready to go as fast as you can hit the store.

Smart Staking

With smart staking, it's no longer necessary to maintain optical tracking during stakeout. Keep your stakeout directions fresh using the GNSS receiver as you make your way to your stakeout point. When you get close, the total station automatically turns and locks on the prism for the final staking precision you need.

Cross Check

SurvCE automatically cross-checks your total station and GNSS positions and warns you when they differ. This way, you can cross stray reflectors and false-fixes off your worry list.

Backup Tracking

You always know where you are, and now your software will too. With backup tracking, SurvCE automatically shows your GNSS position on the map when your total station isn't locked.


Easy hybrid-resection allows for setup anywhere using GPS positions to calculate the total station occupied point and orientation. Measurements from the GPS and RTS are time-synchronized for an accurate and simple one-tap resection measurement.


Simplify setup by seamlessly auto-localizing your GPS receiver as you store total station points.

Easy Setup Wizard

The easy setup wizard walks you through the setup using auto-localization, hybrid resection, or hybrid localization, then finishes with a Cross-Check to get you up and running quickly and confidently.
