Carlson SurvCE user trying to use Topcon Magnet Field

I have used Carlson SurvCE for over a decade with several different Sokkia and Topcon RTK units. I am currently successfully running a pair of Topcon GR5s with SurvCE.I "upgraded" to Topcon HR units a few months ago and even though I was told they would work with SurvCE, they do not. Topcon has closed its architecture to third parties. The only way to run an HR is with Topcon Magnet Field!My salesman gave me a Topcon 5000 with Magnet Field for free to make things right, but now I have to learn…See More

"Hey, I feel your pain. I went from Carlson to Magnet and it was painful... Number one, you are not translating and rotating with your localization. Localize in magnet is mainly matching a scale or chain of previous surveyor.  Use txt files.,…"

"Do you have Magnet Office? A lot of your problems could be solved by running your files into that - it imports most everything. From there you then make a field file to load onto your logger. "

"I would return the receivers. I'm die hard SurvCE. I'd go with Leica receivers if I had to...and that's saying a lot....'cuz I can not stand Leica hardware or software."
