Land Surveyor

What data collectors can be used with a gts 3b?  Many for sale on eBay. Can someone give a few examples? We're just getting onto this but could use a little help! Thank you!

    We paired it up with a Trimble TSC2 Glonass GPS Total Station Data Collector w/ Survey Con... . My surveyor says it works fantastic! Hope this helps someone else!

    Keypad and screen are both in correct working condition. The screen is clean. No cracks in the housing.
  • The old late 1980's  3b s ran first on the "basic" language HP71B. Hp was experimenting at the time, trying to modernize and replace the HP41 (CX) with a more communicative device that could data collect. The 71B never caught on. I believe I ran mine with the 48gx starting around 1990 or so with a tds card......that was a pretty rugged device and software was good...they would commonly go 8-10 years before wearing out if you took care of them.

    I imagine a recon would run one but I don't know about newer devices.
