    Bad survey data

    This was a very small site, say 1/2 acre in unincorporated Napa, CA. Moderately heavy Oak Tree Canapy overhead. All points were collected with the LS and T2 using the precise data topo protocol. Min time is 10 epocs per point. Since I am using the LS and T2, Variety must be zero. I have...

    Bad survey data

    Gentlemen, It has recently come to my attention that my LS is providing fixed solutions that are incorrect. The last 3 projects (possibly 4) have resulted in bad topo data, namely elevation data. Can anyone think of a reason this would suddenly go sideways?

    Windows 11 - Device Security

    I am getting an warning on my win 11 pc that Memory Integrety is off. Apparently there are two drivers associated with Javad software. FTDIBUS.SYS Javad Gnss FTDIBUS.SYS FTDI Ltd. Is this a problem? If so are there updated drivers?

    Localization cheat sheet

    I certainly had a misunderstanding of how localization was implemented. Thank you!

    GSM problem

    Same, I am emailing the network admin now. I have noticed there is a correlation between signal strength and connection problems. That's obvious but it's not so when I am referring to 2 bars rather than 4.

    XFINITY

    FYI, I have been using Verizon for nearly 25 years. My cable provider, xfinity, has been soliciting clients on their mobile service (they utilize the Verizon system). What may interest users here is that accessories such as an ipad or iwatch connect for no additional fee (not to mention their...

    Cloud based storage failing

    I was able to use dropbox for years without a hitch. A few months ago it would not initialize. I revoked and went online set up the account again etc. It worked for a week or so and now I am back to "error retrtieving file list. timed out. curl=28. Timed out after 20002 miliseconds wiht 0...

    LS+ Point Collection Under Heavy Canopy vs Using J-Mate

    So Nate, do you feel confidnent leaving the office witthout another insturment (like a total station) for backup in the case that the Javad equipment (whatever config you are using) will not be sufficient? I am not referring to backup to cover equip inop or failure.

    LS+ Point Collection Under Heavy Canopy vs Using J-Mate

    With the release of the LS+ and the significant improvements over the LS, do those of you that are using the new receiver with a T3 or 1M, find that this single receiveer and base congifuration is all you need to collect in difficult conditions? Heavy overhead canopy etc. When the J-Mate was...

    T2 Option Upgrade

    Thanks Shawn, this message is highly appreciated. I am not 100% on this but think the cost of each item is less than the product page. You also provided much needed analysis of the various options. This is one more instance where I sincerely believe that Javad has far and away the best service!

    T2 Option Upgrade

    Thanks Shawn, I have the LS with the GSM and UHF radio. I also upgraded to the photogrametry option (this is not the correct name). I will also have added the RTPK by the time I upgrade. It sounds like I add 360 for the LS+ upgrade for verizon modem. Will I keep my other options? Also...

    What Causes "Socket Failed" Messages?

    Is that what causes the socket failure or credentials failue (password error)? It would be very helpful to know this as I would not bother with network surveying if signal strength is poor. This begs the question if amplifying the cell signal will help? I know this tech exists for those that...

    T2 Option Upgrade

    I noticed that Steve Hankins liked Shawn's comment that it's best to upgrade to T3 or T-1M. Sounds like adding constellations to T2 does not help.

    T2 Option Upgrade

    Shawn, so you are saying it's not practical to add optional constallations to T2 (to use all constellations that the T2 is capable of tracking for signal variablility)? With or without the LS+. I know with the LS and T2 using RTPK I am required to set the signal variability to zero or it will...

    RTK, vs RTPK wide open areas, setting control.

    How long do you occupy on a point (in open sky) for a topo? John, I will try exporting to kml and see how it lines up. One more quick item, if I want to switch to a new page and change the coordinate system (so I have 2 coordinate systems, one on each page, for the same project) is that...

    RTK, vs RTPK wide open areas, setting control.

    Matt, you mention rotating to eliminate leveling. Is the antenna calibrated properly when aligned north? Is that only when connected to CORS?

    Background maps with parcel lines

    Does this mean when we set up a project we can choose from the available background maps, including assessor parcel maps, if they have been added for our state or county?

    CAD Blocks

    Are most of you guys using blocks that you have spent valuable resources developing? I certainly am not suggesting you do the hard work and I ask for a copy. There must be a group of us that have not done much with this and we can start exchanging a small number of blocks. Perhaps it will...
