Support for Trimble 5800/R8/R8GNSS

Postby survey1 » Mon Sep 17, 2007 8:39 am

I have just installed FG2007 v3.1.2 on a Trimble TSC2. The list under instrument selection for GPS Reference and GPS Rover does not include the Trimble 5800, R8 or R8GNSS.

Am I missing a software patch? Any clarification would be appreciated.

Use the Trimble 5800 driver on the rover, Trimble 5700 driver on the base. Also note that FieldGenius can not use the internal Bluetooth for connection.
