Lake Forest-based Getac Inc. is releasing its latest ultra-rugged GPS handheld device for field-based service professionals. The Getac PS236 portable GPS PDA is possibly the most advanced all-in-one handheld product for rough outdoor uses on the market today, according to the company.

Weighing in at less than 18 ounces, this mobile device packs a powerful technological punch, both in data collection capabilities and communications. Besides GPS function, the PS236 also carries a 3 megapixel auto-focus camera, E-compass and altimeter. Getac also gave the PS236 extended battery life and storage capabilities, allowing for a maximum of 12 GB of data.

In terms of the PDA’s real-time communications, this mini-marvel supports real-time voice and data communications via WWAN, WiFi and Bluetooth networks.

The PS236 allows field professionals to collect data, communicate in the field, and take and transmit photos and JPEG files. Getac's signature Geo-Tagging application also offers professionals the ability to tag and transmit critical geographic information directly onto the JPEG file, including coordinates, altitude and GPS.
