"I have tried the bollock display but all it does is just increase the contrast with more lcd lines being shown. I have charged the battery so it does not seem to be a battery problem so i am thinking it might be the display. Fingers crossed i hope…"

"Hi, My first thought was also the black dial/knob under the display as suggested above. I guess if it is not that then you will struggle to navigate to the parameters as I guess you cannot read the display? Could be faulty display but seems odd that…"

"first, check the batteries, recharge all the batteries and try again many time or replace batterie. maybe the machine was stored during a long time in bad conditions. if it does not work , your dealer hid information about the history of the machine."

And about the traditional boundaries, what you are doing is great, when people see them sketches they usually feel like their properties are known in the map. Do that is very great but after that teach them the importance of having Title(certificate of occupancy) like to easy get loan from any bank and do some development to themselves. Then if the feel worth it then do cadastral survey for them. Good luck for that.

Oh, since they are very precise, zero order control points are very useful in all aspects, for instance, establishing of first order control points extension, for engineering works(road.railway or bridge constructions). For topographical survey. etc But most of the time we use them for control extension thus you can imagine how many first order are there! And they was there long ago, but there was project called TRIMBLE GPS CAMPAIGN and we were remeasuring them(0 order).

Yes Toby in Tanzania we do have approximately ten zero order control points Kagera, Mwanza, Mara, Kigoma, Mbeya, Ruvuma, Lindi, Mtwara, Iringa and Tanga. I don't know about you there.
