Error After Downloading

Post by Guest » Thu Dec 16, 2004 7:39 am

Using MS FG XG2.0 on a Panasonic Toughbook CFP1 with a Trimble 5603 (non-robotic) total station.

Step 1: Export .fbk file in project.

Step 2: We download our FG using MS ActiveSync and Windows Explorer.

When the crew goes back to the field and tries to take a backsight, this error pops up: "Invalid Data Recieved".

They'e tried a hard reset on the Toughbook to no avail. Eventually, the unit will respond, but takes several atempts of rebooting, resetting, etc.

Any suggestions?

I had many similar problems and the cable from data collector to the instrument turned out to be faulty. Once it was replaced then all was well.
