When it comes to equipment, one needs to be able to get it fixed quickly
to reduce downtime. I have had experiences with the Promark3RTK unit
that has a damaged touch screen. The units slipped out of the pole mount
bracket, swung down on by the antenna cable that got dinged by the pole
of clamp somehow.
The unit still works by using the finger
buttons in the Survey Program that does static GPS due to its simplicity
but is too complicated to use without the touch screen options in the
FastSurvey RTK program.
So I need someone to help me get the
touch screen fixed without paying an arm and a leg. Magellan or Ashtech
is poor about making it easy to get information on fixing it and I am
concerned that it would not be worth the cost and effort to try anymore.
I have observed that the cell phone industry has technical people who
can repair any touch screen (replace it) for a forth of the cost or
I just need to find someone locally or who can be trusted to fix the touch screen. Can anyone out there help me with this.
