CHC Navigation and Bench Mark

CHC Navigation is one of the world’s premier GNSS survey solution suppliers. Drawing on a deep well of technical expertise and experienced geomatics professionals, CHCNAV has developed a full-featured line of survey technology equipment that rivals anything the major North American suppliers have produced. From GNSS Receivers, to Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs), to mobile scanners, CHCNAV has dominated the Asian market for a number of years now. Recently, CHCNAV has begun to make moves to bring their full lineup of high-quality and affordable survey equipment to western markets.


The CHCNAV line of GNSS receivers has drivers in many different software packages, including Bench-Mark’s recommended packages: MicroSurvey FieldGenius, Carlson SurvCE and SurvPC.

With their built in 2W radio, the CHC i50 receivers can go farther than most other base and rover packages with just their internal radios. This mixed with their internal, hot swappable batteries makes the i50 GNSS receivers ideal for users who need to be on a large site all day and do not want to keep moving their base.

For any user looking to get their feet wet before fully committing to their own mobile scanner, Benchmark and CHCNAV have teamed up to provide demos to anybody interested in trying one out.

The CHC navigation advantage

CHCNAV and BenchMark Equipment

The CHCNAV i50 GNSS receiver is the go to solution for many of our customers. Built to an IP67 rating and capable of working from -40°C to 65°C, the i50 can withstand anything from the Alaskan winter to summer in the Mojave desert. With their internal 2W UHF radios, an i50 base and rover set can get a fix where the competition has to rely on base booster radios or repeaters. However if the 2W radios still can’t get you the range you need, the i50s also come with a built in 4G modem for VRS or point to point cellular corrections. The i50s also deliver on flexibility, whether you need to work in standard Transparent, or Trimtalk protocols, the i50 will be able to work with a variety of other equipment.
