1M Bluetooth Issues

When I was using my T2 base, I could set the UHF radio up about 20' from the base, as was suggested to me. Now with the 1M, the radio needs to be about 4 feet away, or I get tons of random errors and what I assume are time-outs. Then, when starting or stopping the base, the LS needs to be no further than 2 feet from the 1M at all times, or it'll drop the link and I'm stuck rebooting everything. Is the 1M Bluetooth range really that short?

Here's the worst part though - Sometimes when I got to shut down the base, I connect to the 1M and in the upper-right corner of the LS screen it shows data logging and the timer ticking (as I would expect), but the button next to that says "Start Base" and not "Stop Base". It gives me no option to stop and download. So I end up just powering down and losing all that base data for DPOS. I can recover DPOS session, but I shouldn't have to so often (because it re-imports all the other sessions and creates duplicates of everything I already processed). This happens seemingly at random, maybe 1 out of 4 times. I don't know if this is Bluetooth related or not.

From what I'm told it's possible that your Bluetooth antenna in the Triumph 1M is getting out of tune. It will likely need to be sent in.

Regarding the start/stop button, try disconnecting and connect again.

I tried the disconnecting trick - it didn't work. I'd rather not send my 1M back in, I just got it a couple weeks ago. I think I'll just tough it out until I can trade it in for the T3.

Or I can go back to using my T2 for a base, since I don't see any advantage of the 1M (until Galileo is added).

Aaron I have had the exact same issues as you, mine has done it since the unit was brand new. My work around has bee to just stop the base in the field, shut both units off, and once I'm back to the office I fire them both back up connect the Bluetooth, go to depos, the status will say "base not downloaded" and there is a Download button to can hit to just download that session, it does not duplicate others.
