About Us

HALLTECH was one of the very first companies to bring GPS technology to the Canadian market over 25 years ago. Back then GPS receivers were large and heavy, powered by external batteries, and carried in large suit cases. Laborious routines were necessary to achieve suitable accuracy. Surveying was limited to only a couple hours a day because at the time too few satellites orbited the earth.

HALLTECH now brings to market the high accuracy GNSS receiver that fits into the palm of your hand. The receiver includes an integrated rechargeable power supply and Bluetooth capability. The high accuracy GNSS receiver tracks dozens of satellites from constellations deployed not only by the United States but from Russia, the European Union, and even China!

HALLTECH specializes in GPS/ GNSS integration and remains committed to your success! We do not just provide GPS/ GNSS technology; we provide highly customized guidance, tracking, survey, and mapping solutions alongside superior training and support. We encourage you to contact us and to discover why it is we have become trusted to serve public, profit, and non-profit sectors worldwide!

"Halltech listened to our needs, put together a system that delivered exactly what we were looking for (with respect to cost and performance) and then provided the technical expertise and training necessary to get a person not familiar with surveying, GPS, or any of the other GIS disciplines up to speed and use this equipment exactly as we had hoped."

"Once we were connected over the phone, I was 100% satisfied with the level of service I received. I was in awe that you were able to lead me through the process screen by screen and describe the icons that I needed to push all while over the phone. You certainly know your product."

Andrew Mellick
GIS Analyst, Hatch Limited

“As a wetland ecologist, I need a GPS system that gives me reliable sub-meter accuracy in real time. The SXBlue II GNSS receiver paired with ArcPad software not only meets my needs for precision in the field, it also has the capability to provide simple outputs for quality control so I can trust my readings”.
