Toughbook/FieldGenius and Bluetooth

Post by Guest » Fri Mar 21, 2003 9:43 am

Has anyone tried to connect the Toughbook 01 to a total station using Bluetooth technology and had success? I am seriously considering the Toughbook/Fieldgenius combination but it seems that the cord to the total station is the weak link.

Any comments or suggestions?

We are currently looking into different options available to provide BlueTooth technology. There are several companies trying to address the cable weakness with the Panasonic. One fix that has been proposed is an attachement that would clip on to the bottom of the Toughbook with a standard DB9 connector.

Stay tuned to our website or contact us for more information.
