Trimble R10 question
I just want to be able to use it instead of standing there slowly turning the receiver trying to get past the "Calibration Failed" so I can get some work done.
You only really need to do the first calibration, which is the accelerometers that determine the amount of tilt. All it requires is a good setup and it probably takes 30 seconds. I do it on a tripod with a tribrach and rotatable adapter - after performing the calibration I rotate the adapter and make sure it stays level. This gives me the added benefit of confirming that my tribrach is still in good calibration. It's pretty unlikely that your pole's level is more accurate than the ebubble when the calibration is performed correctly.
The other two calibrations are for the magnetometers, which as far as I can tell are mainly used for compensated points, which I've never had much success with. So I don't usually bother with them.
