I have a south total station 355 which i have connected a serial bluetooth kit, and a ipaq pda. i have downloaded the fieldgenius demo and installed it on my ipaq, i am able to establish a connection through the bluetooth serial with my pda with the communication settings data bits 8, parity none, and baute rate 1200,( since bluetooth only has 8 data bit), the problem i have is that i always get a measurement error each time i take a shot, and yes i have the total station measuring slope distance zenith and deg.I tried the same procedure instead of the bluetooth with a cable with the same communication settings (data bits 8, parity none, baute rate 1200) and i still get the measurement error, the measurment error went away only when i changed the settings to data bit 7, parity even , baute rate 1200, but that means i can only use a cable and not the bluetooth. Is there any logical explanation why this is happening with the 8 data bit?, is there any specific update driver for fieldgenius for the south total station?
