Hybrid Positioning technology is enabled through Topcon MAGNET software.

The new technology allows professionals in the survey, construction, civil engineering and GIS industries to simultaneously connect to GNSS signals and standard robotic measurements on a single rover pole. It has four key components–Hybrid Lock, Hybrid Resection, Hybrid Switch and Auto-localization. Hybrid Lock allows accurate prism tracking by turning the instrument toward the prism location. Hybrid Resection ensures job site setup, as well as establishing RTK and geodetic coordinates. Hybrid Switch allows a quick changeover from GNSS to optical measurement with a single touch. Auto-localization utilizes Bing Maps background, multipoint localization and works with RTK and NMEA positioning.
