Leica Viva GS16 – Experience Innovation

Meet the latest innovation, a self-learning GNSS with RTKplus and SmartLink. The growing number of signals from an ever increasing satellite constellation demands a GNSS receiver to be smarter than ever before.

Simply put, RTKplus is like RTK but better. RTKplus intelligently adapts to changing conditions by selecting the optimal signals to deliver the most accurate positions. Work more efficiently and in more challenging environments than you’ve ever worked in before.

Enjoy uninterrupted accurate positioning even when your local correction service is unavailable due to obstructions or lack of cellular coverage with the global SmartLink service. Even when no reference data is available, work fully remotely with SmartLink.

Engaging software 

The Leica Viva GS16 GNSS smart antenna is accompanied with the revolutionary Captivate software, turning complex data into the most realistic and workable 3D models. With easy-to-use apps and familiar touch technology, all forms of measured and design data can be viewed in all dimensions. Leica Captivate spans industries and applications with little more than a simple swipe, regardless of whether you work with GNSS, total stations or both.

Seamlessly share data among all your instruments 

Leica Infinity imports and combines data from your GNSS, total station and level instruments for one final and accurate result. Processing has never been made easier when all your instruments work in tandem to produce precise and actionable information.
