GPS accuracy designed for under the canopy

Mobile data collection relies heavily on either extensive time and manpower, or advanced GPS technology, both of which have been an expensive proposition until now. The Forge product line offers world class GPS technology at an affordable price point. No matter how challenging the environment, these high accuracy GPS handhelds provide flexibility with four different GPS modes for a wide range of data collection requirements.

Echodistance & Clinometer

The exclusive Forge Echo series combines the most precise GPS technology with an integrated clinometer tool that measures slope and vertical angles. Pair this with groundbreaking, patent-pending echodistance technology, and the Forge Echo makes it easier than ever to measure accurate data on elevation changes, distance and tree heights.
