About Trimble Modules

This chart was last updated December 22nd, 2020.

Trimble's Condor family of GPS modules features major advancements in signal tracking for applications working in poor signal environments. With their higher sensitivity, performance and faster startup times, the Condor GPS modules enable system integrators to easily add Global Positioning System (GPS) capability to a mobile device with minimal impact on its size or battery life at a very economical price.

It is important to choose the best Trimble Module for your application. Trimble and Novotech have produced the reference chart below to compare various Trimble Modules.
