GeoMax Announces New Advanced Tablet, Optimized for Surveyors

Jacksonville, AR: GeoMax Positioning, part of Hexagon, introduces the new Zenius08 rugged tablet. Optimized for surveyors across all industries, the Zenius08 delivers a faster, more intuitive, and more rugged design than its predecessors.

The new, enhanced tablet includes the latest Android technology and is equipped for future Android OS updates. With an extended operating time and faster processor, surveyors can accomplish more in a shorter time without stopping to recharge.


Zenius08 Rugged Tablet – Improved workflow, in all conditions, all day long

The Zenius08 tablet is easy to operate with both an intuitive touchscreen interface and six customizable hardware keys to quickly execute common operations. Function keys can be independently configured for use with either GNSS receivers or total stations. In addition, a dedicated hard key can lock the touch screen to prevent accidental inputs in situations such as inclement weather, allowing continuous operation with the hard keys or the universal stylus.

GeoMax also focused on rugged dependability with the new Zenius08 design. Additions like a larger rubber surface area, lowering the glass surface from the edge, and adding more protection for the batteries, all increase the tablet’s drop resistance. An improved IP rating of IP66/IP68 comes from its increased resistance to abrasion and its ability to withstand temporary immersion under water.


The Zenius08 works seamlessly with X-PAD Ultimate field software, from GeoMax. Upgraded sensors provide a more precise 3D compass, while the GNSS module is compatible with GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, and Galileo constellations.

Additionally, the new rugged tablet delivers increased Bluetooth connection stability and distance when working with robotic total stations, even in challenging conditions.
