It is interesting to note that Trimble views increased since the last time we posted the Geo-matching rankings, climbing to the top of the list and Leica dropped out of the top 5 all together. Personally we have always used Leica total stations
Keep in mind this top 5 list is based on website views, therefore you should really go to Geo-matching.com yourself, read the available material and user reviews; then decide for yourself which total station is best for you.
