Tracker keyboard

Post by barryhaupt » Fri Apr 07, 2006 7:04 pm

Hi,

The keyboard on my Tracker (SN 270878) appears to have remapped itself. Letters A though W are ok, but the numbers are shifted one row up. When I press 5 I get 8, when I press 2 I get 5, the 2nd key is now mapped to zero, the period key is now the 2nd key, etc., etc. The unit has never been used in the field. Just upgraded the O/S and installed FG 2006, but the keyboard was working for about 1 hour after these updates were done.

Would appreciate any help anyone could offer.

Thanks,
Barry

It sounds like the Tracker you have is one without the keys being remapped (to our customized keypad) - but the newly upgraded software install is setup to remap the keys. So they are mismatched right now.

You will need to delete a file called a_msurvey.rmt from the SystemCF directory and then reset your Tracker.

The a_msurvey.rmt file remaps the keyboard on the newer style Tracker.

I deleted the file and did a hard reset. The keyboard works fine now. Thanks for your help. Barry
