Started by Clifford Robertson Jan 13, 2012. 0 Replies

Anyone have any experience importing landxml with alignment and x-section data in the file for station stakeout.  Trying to get around SurveyPro not being able to use templetes with uneven segments…Read more →

  I have a couple of older Topcon Hiper GD's. So I just got this TDS Recon that has GPS option.

 When I try and set my rovers they both start flashing two red lights and I have no communication until I power off and on my rovers, then it starts flashing red again.

 Both Hiper's work with my Carlson data collector and TDS ranger.

Anybody ever have this problem?

No, ours is supposed to do the same thing. It looks like the battery save has kicked in but does not turn off when you tap it, it just stays dark.

Arie, is it part of the battery saving setup?  Ours shuts the backlight off after 3 minutes of inactivity.

Any one ever have a problem with the backlight function? Seems are backlight fades to 50%, although the settings say it is set at 100. When you touch the setting bar it immediate corrects itself, but as soon as you initiate SurveyPro it goes back to 50%. This problem was first noticed on the Nomad we were using last week and now seems to have spread to my Recon.

We shoot the first point on the instrument, then enter the point using Cogo: Distance and direction. Then we set the info up in Survey: Backsight and re-shoot the point, checking by distance. This way you check that the last person to use the instruments didn't leave a UTM factor or set one of the machines to imperial units or something.

How do you do your backsight with the recon and & Survey Pro?  We set the information up in the Backsight Setup do the check by distance, then we go over to Stakeout>Stake Points then stakeout the backsight point.  Then the result is recorded being coded as bschk 2-3 (if we were sitting on 2, backsighting 3) so we have a "point" for the actual check.  Anyone have any other ways that they do their checks?

I have started to use these screen protectors.  They are more of a matte finish so don't glare back at you in the sun.  They can be cut to size and get 2 protectors per sheet of film.  They are very tough, and don't scratch like the original protectors did.
