According to our help file the one supplied with the program should work.

"This system can be used by most of the Leica Total stations models that use the on-board database system for data storage. These include the TC600/800, 605/805/905 and derivatives, along with instruments belonging to the TPS300/700 series."

You mentioned to me that it was saying it was an Unknown Format. Is this the DXM program saying this or the Leica once it is copied to it?

Using the files supplied should allow the unit to download in SDR format.

Did Leica confirm it should work?

We use a TC805 and import the downloaded data into MicroSurvey. Contact me if you can't get it working.

Do you use te frt file or just the coordinate editor in Survey Office.

If you use the frt file please confirm which one.

I use a Q3_m frt file, which allows me to import raw data that includes set-up information recorded with the built-in Leica programs. I think I have a feet version as well.

email me and I'll forward it to you.
