I use the following Trimble products: Trimble Pathfinder Office software, Trimble GPS ProXRS; Trimble Recon Data Logger; and Trimble Terrasync software.

What is the difference between 5700 and 5800? Which is better?
Reply by Chris Root on June 6, 2010 at 11:52am
I'm not exactly sure the difference, as I've never used the 5700. But by reading a little of the specs on the 5700, it sounds that the 5700 is more of a base unit and not a rover like the 5800. The 5800 is an antennae that can be used as a base receiver or rover antennae, but looking at the 5700, it looks more like the actual base receiver itself.

The 5800 can either go on your rover pole or on a base and can serve as either, I'm not too sure the 5700 can be either like that.

I used 5700 as a rover and it can be used also as a base receiver. It has a accuracy of 5mm and I used it in building construction and topographic survey
Reply by Chris Root on June 6, 2010 at 1:52pm
Wow, that's a big piece of hardware on the rover! I bet that thing's heavy. The 5800 is just the round antennae that he has on top of his rover, only slightly bigger ... slightly. The 5800 needs only a cell phone from that point on, no wires, no base ... just a cell phone with Bluetooth. The 5800 also has 5 mm accuracy for static observations, but for RTK it is 10 mm, just like the 5700.

I didn't see the 5800 but I think it look like a R8 which the receiver and the antenna built together and bluetooth operated no need wire. It is not like 5700 that receiver and antennae is separated but when it is used as a base you can use bigger antennae as you see in the picture that i use it both base receiver and rover receiver. When Topograhic survey I used mostly 5700 as a base receiver and R8 as a rover receiver

That looks like a 13" ground plane I've used before for a base that you have on that concrete station. Although the one I've used (just got stolen two days ago!) is about 11 years old and looks it. Yours looks very new Orly, it looks like a nice setup.
Reply by Chris Root on June 6, 2010 at 2:36pm
Not sure about Leica, I prefer Leica for total stations and I've used an older Leica GPS that I didn't really care for, mostly for the user interface. Its accuracy is good though, I just didn't like how non-user friendly it was.

I'd say their both accurate, it would just be up to your comfort level with the software. Trimble is Window's based and the Leica GPS I used was similar to DOS, though that was about 7 years ago.
Reply by Orly S. Albaracin on June 6, 2010 at 2:46pm
I used already 5700 and R8 and I prefer to used R8 as a rover receiver cause it is bluetooth and support Glonass L1/L2 signals providing additional satellites, even less radio frequency signal or under the trees still good accuracy.. but i used 5700 as my base.
Reply by Arnel M. Domag on June 6, 2010 at 3:00pm
Please correct me if i'm wrong. Using 5700 as base with R8 as rover provides incompatibility. To my opinion, your 5700 base as a non-glonass device cannot provide full correction to your R8 along the Glonass spectrum. I guess using R8 as rover with 5700 as base is somehow a waste of money.
