    Static IP on phone or router?

    Where can I get more information on J-Cors Shawn? Thx

    Let's discusses J-Tip

    That is a pretty good cross section of locators Nate, well thought out as usual. Thanks. In favor of less weight scrambling up slopes I have thought a bit about this and am wondering if anyone has experience using the pocket sized Garret-Pro pointer for survey applications? I have been tempted...

    What concept would fit better for your applications?

    I find this question valuable. I have to say that the thing that initially caught my attention with the Javad form back in 2014 was the all in one unit, it's uniqueness, and I am glad I tried it and think it is far superior to the 1990's operating form of a separate controller for reasons...

    Well, that didn't last long [R.I.P. clippy strap]

    Exactly! I was eyeing this strap nervous about just that problem. Thanks for posting this Eric.

    I'd like to follow up on this and hopefully Paul can get an answer that helps with his unit. I worked with this for him by Rams 2 days ago and I agree with Shawn it appears the incorrect firmware is installed. We did not change this because he recalled that Mat Johnson worked with him...

    What to do with retired T-2's?

    so you could add a mount to your survey car, the uses are multi, .....topo on busy traveled highway lanes, trajectory survey on my way to an end of road survey in mountains so I find way back in dark, park and survey autonomous base (with radio), or just have in my pack as backup base in event...

    The round table

    one time years ago when I was a struggling part chief working in frozen Michigan winter I encountered a fellow on a dozer I was setting stakes for and on my comment about my frozen feet in cheap boots led him to mention his $3oo boots and toasty feet, with a smile, he said ya know, I'd spend...

    Setting up a permanent base

    And if for some reason I do need to use optical methods on a site I just tried GNSS and it not ideal......I lost nothing on setup overhead

    Setting up a permanent base

    I also want to add that another potentially unoticed benefit is the huge time savings I get in not setting up a new base every survey. Over time this is hours and hours to my life if not to effeciency and a blow to competition. On local jobs where I might have a couple part day field trips...
