I am having a heck of a time getting this gun to zero from my TSC3. The gun seems to connect as soon as I run "Station Setup" from the collector, but when I tell it to backsight it beeps but does not zero and the collector says instrument error.
The baud rate is set to 1200, parity is even, stop bits 2. I tried going up to 4800 on the baud, but I'm really grabbing at straws. If anyone has any know how it is greatly appreciated.

Who's cable are you using? Some of the old serial cables had a "swapped pair" Also, Trimbles website has a pretty good knowledge base to drop this question into.
And, why the cable? or doesn't the GTS-235W have Bluetooth?
This might help...
Thanks for replying! I am using the serial cable that does work between our TSC3 and our Topcon GPT-3000. I tried the bluetooth on the GTS-235W with multiple TSC3's. I can create a partnership, but I am unable to establish any communication between the equipment. Per Trimbles release notes on Access Version 2015.21 third party bluetooth connections should be supported, and I did confirm that one of our DC's exceeds that version....so I'm lost again. Again, thank you any and all for help.
