Professional GPS receivers
o are generally designed to meet the needs of a specific markets such
as agriculture, asset management, mapping, mining, survey, etc.
o employ error mitigation via differential corrections, multiple
signal usage, multipath rejection antenna design and electronics
o are generally design to work with GIS environments.


Recreational GPS receivers
o navigationally oriented
o low cost
o mass market

The Promark may use the same hardware or a slightly modified version,
but the software is completely different. No, a 330 can't be used as a
reference or base station, and it's not possible to load the ProMark
firmware into a 330.
