New Key Features
GroupCode: Significant new feature to facilitate fast collection of repetitive features such as roadway cross sections or by a common theme. Full support of multiple concurrent linework figures and full automation of code selection is possible to increase productivity.
Rotate/Translate/Scale: A new option has been added to calculate the transformation parameters from control points to transform a range of points. This is similar to the Helmerts functionality in MicroSurvey CAD.

Project Manager: The Project Manager was modified to allow quicker project loading.
MEP Module: FieldGenius Premium now includes an MEP (Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing) module that features our Auto-Locate Staking functionality to mark a point on a wall, floor or ceiling, or to project a pipe through a wall.
RAW file encryption: The encryption setting for the project RAW file is now automatically retained and saved to program defaults when the user toggles the setting. Previously the encryption toggle would always be disabled by default for new projects.
