ProMark 3 -> SP60 Trade-In Program
Spectra Precision is offering a substantial trade-in program for converting ProMark 3 receivers to the latest SP-60 receivers. If you have ProMark 3 receivers and you are thinking about upgrading to state-of-the-art receivers, now may be the time.
Here is the redemtion table:
Part Number Description PM3 Trade-In Value
104234-00 SP60 L1 GPS Single Receiver Kit $600
104234-01 SP60 L1 GNSS Single Receiver Kit $900
104234-02 SP60 L1/L2 GPS Single Receiver Kit $900
104234-50 SP60 L1/L2 GNSS Single Receiver Kit
   w/UHF 430-470 MHz 2W TRx
So a pair of ProMark 3 receivers would have a trade-in value of $2,800 towards a RTK pair of SP60s.
Additional information with list prices can be found here [ SP60 Information ].
If you are considering taking advantage of this program, please drop me a note or call so we can figure out which data collector you will need, I will get you an 'official' quotation.
