Updated Pricing for ProMark 800 and ProMark 200!

The price of the ProMark 800 receiver has dropped $1,000 and all options (Unlimited RTK, GALILEO, L5, GSM Modem and FAST 20 Hz Output) are now included. This makes a significant difference in RTK Base / Rover pair prices and GSM Network Rover prices.

If you are considering purchasing a RTK pair, it will be worth getting a new quote based on this new PM800 offering:

PN 990657-99; ProMark 800 GNSS Single Receiver Kit

It can drop the price of a fully optioned Base Rover pair by more than $15,000! I tried to automatically re-quote all PM800 systems that we have issued during the previous 90-days. If I missed yours, drop me a piece of email...

The price of the ProMark 200 receiver has also dropped $1,000! This means you can purchase a complete network rover, ready-to-survey, for well under $9,000! We were running a special on ProMark 200's through the first week of October, this price adjustment really makes a big difference.
