PCSurvey. ASCII point files are always standard. Further checking shows comma-standard point files load fine if it is a new project w/no points, but in a project with points it crashes. Tried pre fg07 exported comma-standard point files without any problems.

Thanks for your efforts.

Brian, I'm also having problems loading comma delimited files exported from fg07 to my cogo software. Attempting to load them cause the cogo software to crash. No problem in the past w/fg06, same unchanged cogo software. Again I have no problem loading space delimited files with this cogo software. ...

FG07 ASCII (comma delimited stanard) upload problem

I have the Xtreme w/FG07 loaded. When I attempted to load an ASCII point file, comma delimited-standard, as I’ve done so many times in the past when FG06 was loaded without incident, I get a message that it will not load points. I’ve tried this with pre FG07 ASCII point files on my computer and get ...

I use the same method of power down as I did w/FG05. Power save was always off, disconnect TS from menu, turn iPaq off. Turn iPaq on, same FG screen appears, click connect TS, exit out and start work again. This method was used, be it pickup and move or break for coffee or diplomatic discussion w/ir...

Initial locking problem seems to be fixed by renaming the .exe file to .ex_ as instructed by Brian. Unfortunately I’m now getting a codebase error. Closing the error and continuing causes the point ID# not to advance to the next. This error has been narrowed down to when disconnect TS and the iPaq i...

It's worse! When I disconnect TS and power down the iPaq in the field and then power it back on it locks. Must have done 6 hard resets in the field today. No fun.

I use a Topcon GTS-303 w/topcon non-robotic default settings and have no problems. I've used FG05 and now FG06 on iPaq 2215 w/o any major communication problems w/topcon GTS-303. Maybe cable, or connection at dc or instrument.

I doubt the CF card is defective and believe the two issues are not related, I think the lost CF card is related to the use of the SD card, the problem has not reappeared since I’ve stop using the SD card, but will continue to monitor. Also this was an upgrade from FG 05 v1.2, which functioned fine ...

FG 2006 v2.0.2 iPaq locking and lost cf card

Since loading FG06 v2.0.2 I've had a few instances of the iPAQ 2215 locking. When I start loading FG it halts on the start screen, and then when I stop FG and attempt to restart FG it locks the iPAQ. After hard reset it functions fine. Another related-unrelated new problem was the iPAQ lossing sight...

Not the IPAC

I still have the IPAQ which funtions fine. It's not the the IPAC that I have issues with, but it's the glossy membrane of the environmental case. I find myself straining my eyes to view it due to the glare from the membrane.

Jason, If you are going to assume that we are all doing closed traverses and not closed loop traverses then what about the closing angle not being adjusted? In a closed traverse you can hold your distance and position of your starting leg but you must adjust your turned angles, all of them. The clos...

Flawed closure procedures!

Field Genius 04 does not correctly report or adjust traverse. I ran a manually entered simple 3 legged travese and found the following: Program assumes the initial measured backsight reading is absolute, when reporting precision it ignores this measured distance. On my trial it reported 1/14,374, bu...

Thanks Richard for your response!

Yes it is minor, but when you're told it has been fixed and you think you're the selected one, you wonder what's up.

Thanks again,
