Anyone experience with the Geomax zoom 90?? I used to work with a Sokkia SRX3 total station but after 10 years it has to be replaced.
The price of the geomax is much cheaper than for example Topcon, or Trimble but is the equipment reliable?
Looking forward to your replies.
Greetings from Belgium.

Thank you Brendan
As a supplier of all these equipment and to my best knowledge it is better for you to buy Sokkia or Topcon instrument as they are better in their construction(internal quality of EDM,main board,etc) rather than Geomax.
Thank you Pranam;
Yesterday I ordered a Topcon GT 503 to replace my broken Sokkia SRX3
We're a Geomax dealer, so I'm not going to pretend that this is a totally unbiased account, but the fact is that the Zoom90 is exactly the same as the Leica TS15 - literally the only difference is the colour (and the price!). Geomax and Leica are both owned by Hexagon so share manufacturing, R & D etc. on a lot of their equipment.
So, the great thing about the Zoom90 is it's tried-and-tested as the TS15, and is open source so you can choose controller and software that suits you, whether its Field Genius, Carlson or X-Pad. We sell mostly X-Pad with Android tablet as it's very intuitive. Anyway, probably a bit late to the party with this info - but felt I had to defend the honour of the Zoom90 - it's a great instrument, and really reliable in our experience!
