Does Fieldgenius have a feature like turn to point? I keep losing lock and walking back to the instrument to re-establish it.  I use the search function but if I am not in the right location it will not find the rod before it finds the backsight.

No it does not, but the search function lets you have it search left or right, so no reason to walk back to the instrument usually. I almost never have to use the joystick to regain lock with the Leica and fieldgenius because the search always works. With Trimble you have to get it close with the joystick first. 

What is happening when you try searching? And which model Leica robot is it?

BTW, I also suggest adjusting the search settings on the robot to 5 seconds of prediction...that way when you walk past a vehicle or trailer or something if you keep your speed consistent and height of the rod close to the same height it will hopefully pick up lock on the other side. I've found the old Leica 1203+ amazing for that.
