5603 Stake Out Question

I am a home builder that purchased a 5603 with TCS2 data collector running Surveyor Pro 4.7.I have no experience in surveying but I am slowly learning to use the machine.My question or problem is I have experimented with staking out a 25'x25' square in my driveway which is pretty level. When I check the points and square it up, it's dead on. I then tried in my yard with a decent slope. It's telling me it's roughly a 3' drop in 25'. That point is off about 2".

Upgrade Trimble GPS 5800 R8

I am attempting to update an R8 receiver for the upcoming GPS week rollover.  Currently it has v2.31 and according to Trimble v2.32 needs to be installed to handle the rollover.  After downloading the WinFlash utility and while it is configuring the software update I get the following error:Device Failure [824] The software for the Trimble R8/R6 on Com1 cannot be upgraded due to the firmware and hardware mismatch.Any ideas on what to do next?

    Buenas noches, mi pregunta es la siguiente, es posible la compatibilidad entre un receptor 4700 y una colectora TSC2, cual seria la mejor configuracion para la interoperabilidad de estos equipos.

    De antemano gracias.

    Hi im looking for EGSTAR for my Rtk machine. South S82
  • Hi,

    I don't know how my face got on here. I did have some Trimble questions a while back. I found a good Trimble repair guy near Atlanta Ga if anybody is interested. He worked for Trimble before going out on his own & has kept my 5303 Robot working great.

  • Any one use a Zeiss Elta 50.. Here?? Just an inquiry since Trimble bought Zeiss out!

  • Can anyone help me with these questions about R10 and 4700? Thanks.
  • This might be a simple question, but I have Pathfinder Office 5.20, and everytime I try to load a WMS service I get an error. Does any one have any links that work, I have tried all teh WMS services i use in ArcGIS, but they all show errors. Is there a set Trimble offers, i could not find it on their web sites, or is there ones that every one uses. All I want are the world images like on ArcGIS, or Bing, or google earth. they work iin the GIS world, so they should work on pathfinder office too. thanks for all your help.

    PS, I am in BC, Canada, if that makes diffrence, it shouldent though.

    Hi Mashaka.. you most likely will not get much of a response when you just add a comment because there is no way to directly reply to it.  Your best bet is to start a new discussion in this group forum so that everyone here gets a notice that you need feedback..
