Fellow Surveyors,

Can someone tell me...Is Trimble TSC3 controller compatible with other GNSS receivers like the CHC i80?

If it's available in the equipment list then yes. Depends on what version of the field software is on it. Typically it's Survey Pro or whatever Trimble calls it....it's usually identical to the TDS Survey Pro.

Thanks Rob

Hi Peter

I don't know too well TSC3, but it seems quite similar to other WinMobile field controllers.

The Bluetooth transceiver is 2.0+EDR compliant, suitable with the most part of GNSS new and old receivers.

So, You can connect the i-80 with TSC3.

I checked it and SurvCE run on TSC3. Furthermore, this software is suggested by iGage and therefore it will surely be compatible with the receiver i-80.

Thanks Carlo

Hi Peter,

Sorry about late response.

If you haven't found the right answer yet, I think this might be useful.

CHC i80 works with SurveCE Version5 & CHC Landstar 7.

TSC3 works with SurvCE V5.

You'd find this info on http://www.survce.com/supportedHardware

Not sure if TSC supports CHC Landstar7. But SurvCE V5 is a better option.

So, you can use TSC3 for CHC i80 with SurvCE V5.

Happy Surveying...!

If you're using TSC3 with Trimble Access, now Access fully supports Spectra Precision SP80 as well.
