Can someone explain to me the difference?  I'm potentially buying a R8 with 430-450 internal radio and a HPB450 with the same.  Will I be compliant with FCC?  Thanks.Read more →

"The 4700 andthe R10 are compatible...but if you are using trimble Access be wary of "glitchiness" . I use R10's with R8-2's and as a best practice I make sure to write a new survey style and change the radio station back and…"

TSC2 Survey Controller/ Construction version difference

I have not been able to get an answer to this from my local Trimble dealer.  Do we as Surveyors using TSC2 with Surveyor Controller have the ability to upload a CAD file and stake objects such as pipelines, mh and centerlines ect. just like the Construction Contractors are doing with their Construction Software version.  The Contractors are virtually running the same equipment we are just a different name and software.  It seems as though they have better ability to stake than we do.  Just…See More
