FG Emulator

Post by Richard Sands » Thu Jan 10, 2008 3:06 am

I see the FG emulator has been replaced with the Tablet edition.
Note: this version can be licensed at the same price as the Windows CE version. It is a fully functional Laptop or Tablet PC product that allows you to hook up your computer to a total station or GPS equipment and collect data or stake out points.
You can also use it for training on your desktop.
Does this still work as a desktop Emulator as a 'Freebie' or do we need a second license?
regards, Richard

It is the same product, just a different name.

If no activation code is found, then FG Tablet will run in demo mode.
  • Only ten points can be stored per session.

    User defined settings are not saved to the msurvey.ini file meaning they have to reconfigure FieldGenius every time it is started.

    Roads created with FieldGenius are not saved.

    All modules are activated - Standard, Robotic, GPS and Advanced.

    Instrument Connection allowed in the Landscape, Portrait and Desktop.
