The Leica Viva GS14 with its hybrid communication technology is the most advanced compact GNSS receiver in the market, said Bernhard Richter, Leica Geosystems GNSS business director. The addition of CDMA modem capability in a unique all-in-one design offers unmatched flexibility in communication choices.
