Can anyone give me any leads to documentation for TDS Survey Pro v3.20 as built-in on a Topcon GTS-710? A lot of the features can be figured out intuitively, or by getting hints from manuals for other early versions of Survey Pro on other platforms, but I'd like to find the full details for this version in this total station. Thanks!

  • I have the manuals for the onboard TDS software.  I know this thread is getting long in the tooth, so you may have rounded them up by now.  Let me know if you still need them.

      Perhaps this Quick Start Guide for Survey Pro will help... let us know

      • Hi, Survenator; thanks for taking the time to share those two manuals. I did already have the Topcon GTS-710 Series Instruction Manual PDF from the Topcon Japan website ( It's a useful manual, but it makes no mention of the built-in TDS Survey Pro. The other document you shared is a quick start guide for GPS features in some version of Survey Pro, but the version that's built in to the GTS-710 total station knows nothing about GPS.  :-)  So, I'm still hoping to find something like the User's Manuals and Reference Manuals that TDS produced for other versions of Survey Pro.
