Re: Allegro Tracker with Leica 1200 GPS

Just noticed in the instruction video that in the Options Menu, it shows a "Correction Link" tab and mine doesn't have this. I think I installed the proper version. What am I missing here?

Re: Allegro Tracker with Leica 1200 GPS

So I have it all installed and put in an activation code for FG 2008 4.1.0, everything seems fine, except I can't seem to find the "Correction Link" tab in the GPS Profile settings when trying to set it up.

Re: Allegro Tracker with Leica 1200 GPS

Is it the "MicroSurvey FieldGenius.CE5.CAB" file? I found it in the directory in which it was trying to install from using ActiveSync.

Re: Allegro Tracker with Leica 1200 GPS

Can I install the CAB file via the External CF Card or do I have to do it through windows mobile device center? I can't get the RX1250 to communicate with my CPU so was hoping I could install the CAN file instead. Any help would be great.

Allegro Tracker with Leica 1200 GPS

How do I setup our Allegro Tracker running FG 2008 with our Leica 1200 GPS? Or would it be easier to install FG on the data collector that comes the the Leica unit?

I don't think it could get any easier than FG2006 to calc bearings and what not. From the sounds of things FG2007 has alot of new great features but took away one of the best features from previous versions. It would be nice to see an update keeping all the new features but revert back to the old wa...

i got the problem resolved, i found a post on the Alegro data collectors running windows CE,with the same problem and it said to hold on/off and shift button at the same time and that would do a system restore and sure enough it worked, so that kills the theory of not being able to restore the syste...

I'm not a real big fan of the cases, because you can't set the tracker in the clamp on the legs, and its hard to keep the strap around your neck and have the cable connected to the total station, when you constantly have to move around, i suppose if the tracker was wireless it would be o.k, how woul...

how do we know if we have a weather proof tracker or not, can i tell by the serial number on the back? The tracker i have is about 3 or 4 months old. And since it is in working condition, does that mean i can send it in and you will make it an IP65 unit if it it is not an IP65 unit, currently?
