Trimble Data Collector question (Land Surveying)
Okay, I am NOT (thankfully) a Trimble user, so I am hoping that one of the Trimble gurus can help me out here.
I have a client that uses Trimble gear (R8 w/ TSC2 v10.7).
I just found out that when I send him “search coordinates” (it's a long story), he has to INPUT them individually from the screen (basically doesn't know how to download an [ASCII] .csv file to the collector). I told him that I would ASSUME that you could probably do that directly into the data collector even from a thumb drive (it has a port).
I know that my state of the Ark DOS collectors can duo this (from a PCMCIA or Compact Flash Card), so I have a hard time believing that Trimble's megabuck system can't handle something this simple.
What say you?
