Trimble Business Center
use windows mobile
Yes you need “Trimble Business Center” it’s a drag that Trimble and other companies have gone the route of proprietary software to use their products
You can also use Trimble ascii file generator if you just want to export using style sheets and it is free. Various Trimble style sheets are also available online. If it involves processing then it is TBC as advised before

Here the link to the ASCII File generator:

You can generate as replied earlier, style sheets and als also the Trimble JOB XML file which you can use in the open source software to calculate 1d, 2d, 2.5d and 3d networks.
Here a link with description and the download link. The programmer is German so it might be all in German even on this website:

We use this software now days very often at German land surveying universities, because it's free and we its open JAVA code you can change things.

But with the converter or this software you can export it as a file readable for any CAD or land surveying program.

Except of AutoCAD I can only tell you Trimble Business Centre or Trimble Real Works (Advanced version of Trimble Business Centre, called TBC vor scans and 3d modelling)

I hope that can help you a bit :)

Hi Sarkiss. You can use Trimble Business Center and you need Windows Mobile Device Center to connect your GPS controller to your laptop. Cheers!
