I've brought a few dxf's from LDD into FG 2005 and almost every time I get similar results of zooming out much wider than anything in the drawing. I just think of it as a quirk and window back in to where I need to be. I also recently saw a large size subdivision dxf that took a long time to load in...

Stake correction buttons

Another thing I would like to see revised is the correction reporting buttons when staking a point. I usually accept a staking tolerance of 0.03’ (using Instrument as my staking reference). The problem comes in when I shoot a point and get a correction back like: Out 0.15’ and (green dot) 0.03’. I m...

Tracker Extreme

What's with the Tracker Extreme, are they getting close?

Can you share any info with us like processor speed or keyboard layout?

I sure would like to see one.

More Wish List

More Wish List There are a few things that have really been bugging me about the way FieldGenius works. They have remained through different versions and updates so I’ll call them my “wish list” items. I’d like to hear some feedback from other users and MicroSurvey to know if I’m the only one these ...

Yes for 2D, no elev's

Working in sunny, but relatively flat, Florida I do 95% of my work in 2D so I would like the option to not create elevations. I currently bring Acad points into FG 2005 from an ASCII file with 0.00 for elevation, but all of my newly collected points in FG get elev's like 2.56 to -5.03 and this is wi...

pasurvey, I'm just curious as to how you are shutting down the iPaq between setups or extended time away to conserve the battery. Are you simply hitting the power button, tapping the upper right hand "X" or fully exiting out of FieldGenius? I'm still running FG 2005 ver 1.2 on a CF card on the same ...

try this

Not the same model, but I have a GPT 2005 and had comm. trouble when I tried to set all the parameters in FG 2005 to match the instrument. What did work for me was to simply hit the "Default Communication Settings" button in the "Model and Communication" screen. Try that.

FG 2006 improvements

I see FG 2006 being advertised. It looks like some key issues were addressed and FieldGenius is really evolving into a super slick data collection program. Probably the most important improvements I would look for before upgrading would be in the Area and Traverse Adjustment commands. So a couple of...

I am using the first release of FG2005 version 1.2 (D/L on 4/18/05) loaded on an iPaq 2215. When building a road my starting point sometimes gets lost (point field goes blank) ...

Cade, This might be worth a try. If you have been using the same PC to install FG each time you may have multiple entries on your PC's Add/Remove programs. Have a look in there and delete all the FieldGenius - Pocket PC entries. A re-boot here might help. Then re-install the newest version. That wor...

Activesync Support Module

I have updated my FieldGenius a few times with your online service packs, but I have not updated the Activesync Support Module since the beginning. I have often wondered if I needed to update or reinstall this module. Is there a way to check the version for this or has it remained unchanged?

Add/Remove Programs

While looking through my Add/Remove Programs list I found 4 different entries labeled as FieldGenius 2004 - Pocket PC Version. They range in size from 47 MB to 49 MB. What are these? Can I safely remove these? I am thinking they are something created every time I reinstall the update patches.

Distance units

John,

Don't know about the Tracker, but on my iPaq I notice that I cannot change the Distance Units once the project file is created. It appears only during the initial creation can you choose this.

Prism offsets

I have noticed on my iPaq 2215 running FG 2004 1.0.7 that I must set the prism offset to -30 mm to match the instrument (Topcon, non-robotic). After looking at the manual I was under the impression that the distances would be incorrect by doing this, but after some simple checking with my steel tape...

Point Rotation

Glen, I too was hoping to see an improvement in this area. Other data collection programs will allow you to define an old bearing, angle or azimuth by various entry methods such as between point numbers or typing them out. Then in a separate field, define the new bearing, angle or azimuth without ha...

It always goes back to North Azimuth when I restart FG. Even though I have hit Save as System Defaults and confirmed it....
