Leica MS50 onboard Scanning

Post by brain » Sat Jun 07, 2014 5:26 pm

I seem to be having trouble with the MS50 and onboard with the lastest update. I just updated MS50 to 5.05 and also field genius to It has trouble with EDM modes from reflectorless and prism. I have to run Viva with it and change it in Viva. Also I can not find how to scan in MS50 onboard. I see the normal scan but that is not using MS50 ultra fast engine and is not very easy to define a scan also doesnt allow the pictures.

To enable the scanning functionality you need to get an activation code from your Leica dealer to activate the GeoCOM scanning function. Once you do that you will be able to use the scanning functionality of the MS50.

Regarding switching EDM modes it should be working. Could you create a support ticket so someone from our support department can look into your issue.
