Leica Zeno Connect

Exciting news, there’s now a free app to connect Zeno Smart Antennas to any Android or Windows device!

The new Leica Zeno Connect app enables users to connect their GG02/03/04 Smart Antenna with any Android or Windows smartphone or tablet for free. The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) functionality enables any smart device to collect or use survey grade data.

It works like this:

  1. Download the Leica Zeno Connect free app onto your Android smartphone or tablet.
  2. Connect to your Zeno smart antenna via Bluetooth.
  3. Using your RTK data connection such as SmartFix, accurate data is streamed to your device.
  4. Use your existing GIS / data collection software to access the data stream.

“Wherever users are working, despite, how rough the environment, the Zeno GG04 ensures all needed data is easily and accurately collected,” said Alexander Fischer, Leica Geosystems Zeno product manager. “The flexibility offered by turning our most common devices into precise instruments increases access to the geopositioning world, and this is certainly an exciting advancement to share technology and information with new segments.”

Simply connect and configure your antenna via Bluetooth and start using your favourite data capture app. Collecting high accuracy geospatial data on your smartphone or tablet has never been easier.

Paired with the Leica Zeno GG04 Smart Antenna, any Zeno or third party mobile device with Android or Windows OS can now collect highly-precise positioning data with Leica Geosystems’ GNSS technology and industry-leading 555-channel tracking performance. With PPP, users can collect data even in areas without cellular coverage.
