    2 LS's 1 Surveyor

    Not as such. But you could collect a point at the edge of radio range, setup the LS to run as a base on that point and continue from it with the second LS.

    That stake out idea is excellent, Clay.

    J-Mate

    Ralph, I believe it will be very well suited to commercial as-builts, but we'll have to wait and see how the system works before we can say for certain. It's one of the top applications I anticipate using it for.

    J-Tip treasures

    I use that setting pretty much exclusively.

    Background Map File Size Limit?

    Jim, See if this thread helps. I don't use background images, so I'm not much help to you. https://support.javad.com/index.php?threads/unable-to-upload-backgroundmap.3407/#post-31636

    PPK from "unknown" question

    It's an unexpected situation (from the software side). I don't think there is anything to correct. You have RTK vectors and that's all. Switch everything to RTK. If the base coordinate for session 2 matches the final base coordinate for session 1, then you have nothing left to do. If it does not...

    PPK from "unknown" question

    You said there was no base file present. There is nothing to look at. I suspect the ppk is simply the rtk vector from the autonomous position of the base or some such. It's meaningless.

    PPK from "unknown" question

    If you don't have a base file, you aren't going to get a PPK value.

    J-Field 3.0.1.387 still freezing up...

    I've noticed that since Linux, Bluetooth behavior has changed. It causes problems when connecting to J-Tip after using Base/Rover setup. It seems that the LS is always trying to reconnect to the base. I've made it a habit to press Done lately and it seems to help. Prior to Linux, I never worried...

    J-field Rotate and Translate is archaic

    CAD tools in J-Field have been needing improvement for some time also. Carlson does have a very nice set of CAD features, pretty much everything you'd want to do with CAD in the field is available. Hopefully the list of improvements we've requested will get put on the front burner again soon.

    North Pole shifting Rapidly

    Our compass actually uses the World Magnetic Model to correct for magnetic declination. I'm sure once they release a new one it will be added to the software by update.

    J-field Rotate and Translate is archaic

    If you import deeds as polylines, with each of those polylines in a separate layer (i.e. named after the deed), then the code in J-Field for the points will be the layer name. Use the filter by code and you will only have the points that were from that layer.

    J-field Rotate and Translate is archaic

    I think we have plenty of ways already to segregate points. The rotate command needs to be reworked. There should be an initial bearing entry, defined by points or direct entry. There should be a target bearing, also defined by points or direct entry. The difference between the two should be...

    I know both are using UHF only.

    J-field Rotate and Translate is archaic

    The rotate command can still use major improvements. Your video demonstration of selecting various point ranges is very helpful. For the task you performed, an align feature, similar to AutoCAD would have made the operation much faster. I end up using localization to do this because I'm more...

    I had another customer report the same behavior today.

    ETA on Linux and Galileo

    James, If we had it, we'd give it. We've passed along estimates that were passed along to us and it's led to understandable frustration. I can say they are making good progress. There are alpha versions being tested by a few right now. I'm not one of them yet. It is a high priority issue and it...

    ETA on Linux and Galileo

    It's unlikely that one engine can process all signals from all constellations efficiently in our current engine scheme. Dividing different signals from different constellations in different combinations may prove to be the superior approach. Time will tell.

    ETA on Linux and Galileo

    The current chip will handle all constellations. The question is a matter of implementation - the strategy for dividing the work between the six engines in the most productive way. We may not know for sure until more testing is done.
