The usage of VR gear in mixed reality applications demands a high position and orientation accuracy of all devices to achieve a satisfying user experience. This paper investigates the system behaviour of the VR system HTC Vive Pro at a testing facility that is designed for the calibration of highly accurate positioning instruments like geodetic total stations, tilt sensors, geodetic gyroscopes or industrial laser scanners. Although the experiments show a high reproducibility of the position readings within a few millimetres, the VR system has systematic effects with magnitudes of several centimetres. A tilt of about 0.4° of the reference plane with respect to the horizontal plane was detected. Moreover, our results demonstrate that the tracking algorithm faces problems when several lighthouses are used
