Silent Mode?

Is there any way to turn off the sounds in FG 2011 tablet? It gets pretty noisy in a classroom when students are working on projects.

Re: Segmented arcs?

In case anyone else runs into this problem, I sent the project in with my support request and here's the response I got. I did what they suggested and the problem was resolved. "If you examine your coordinate database file in FG you will see that point 10 is the only station that had an elevation of...

Screen Display

Is there a way to remove the total station and backsight icons from the map display after disconnecting from an instrument? I've set the Instrument to None, but the icons are still there. We're using FG 2011.

Segmented arcs?

I have a FG2011 project which contains an arc defined by begin, end, and radius points. When I try to draw the arc or inverse along it, it shows as the straight segments (drawn in the opposite direction than specified when inversing). The arc information is correct. I've double-check the curve's geo...

Re: Tracker and Windows 7

Thanks for the info. We're running win 7 Pro 64-bit so I re-installed the 64-bit version of WMDC ( http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=3182 ). I thought if I selected "Allow connections to the following" that it would use any of the ports in the dropdown list. But I guess th...

FG 2011 Tablet

We've installed and licensed the tablet edition of FG 2011 on our Win 7 lab computers. On our old Win XP systems when we ran FG 2010 in demo mode, we had a choice of interface (Full-screen, portrait, or landscape). Now, FG 2011 comes up in full-screen mode automatically.

Has anyone successfully installed FieldGenius 2011 on an original Tracker (Yellow w/Esc at lower right)?

We have some original Trackers with a serial only connection. Windows Mobile Device Center in Windows 7 doesn't recognize the Tracker when it's connected to the computer's serial port.

Re: Stylus

Being a school, we regularly lose stylii. What I've found works well and are cheap are popsicle sticks. They come in packs of 200 or so for about a buck at hobby stores. Being rounded wood, they don't scratch the screen, and they're two-ended. They may not look elegant, but they work.

Re: Installing FG 2010

OK, I give up. How do I uninstall FG 2008 on our Trackers (OS Windows CE .NET 4.2)? When I try to do so, I get a message which says it can't be removed since "\Windows\Microsurvey FiledGenius.Unload" is in use or is read only. I can't find a file by that name on the Tracker.

Installing FG 2010

We have FG 2008 on our data collectors and are upgrading to 2010. Should I uninstall 2008 before doing a full install of 2010? Or should I just go ahead and run the 2010 full installation?

I imported an ASCII coordinate file into an FG2008 project. I then created some figures by connecting points (edge of pavement, etc). Turns out, there was an error in one point's coordinates. I edited the point and when I saved it, it became separated from the line. When I select the figure, it stil...

In FG 2006 on our Trackers (and emulators), we were able to combine simple math operations with direction and distance recall for calculations. For example, in the Traverse/Inverse Calculations menu I could enter 1..2-90.3410 in the direction field press enter or tab and FG 06 would respond with the...
