TrimbleCourtesy TrimbleTrimble has enhanced the global positioning system in its Yuma 2 tablet, reducing it down to 1- to 2-meter accuracy.

The Corvallis, Ore.-based mobile division made the improvement without adding weight or requiring attachment of an external antenna, according to a news release.

It does so by using SBAS, or satellite-based augmentation systems, which compensate for inaccuracies within global navigation satellite systems, or GNSS.

Both the enhanced version and the regular Yuma 2, which has 2- to 4-meter accuracy, run on Microsoft Windows 7 Pro operating systems and feature two USB ports and an HDMI output.
