I'm hoping my fellow surveyors have an answer for my question.
I'm trying to bring my Topcon GTS 203 total station out of "retirement". I used to use my HP 48GX with SMI 48 DCE software for data collection. However, when I fired it up again, the collector would trigger the instrument to take the shot, but the HP would not record the shot. I then got out my older Pentax and hooked it up to the HP 48GX and it worked fine. I realize that you need to choose the correct instrument in the settings on the HP 48GX but we tried every instrument ( even the Pentax ) but none would trigger the data collector to record the shot.
What am I missing? Any help would be truly appreciated and thank you in advance.
