Overall J-Mate experiences...?

I do admit to being very surprised how few reports and posts that there have been with the trial users in regards to the J-Mate experience. I bought my Javad after running my entire business on the back of Geodimeter robots for the last 20 years. It has taken me about 18 months but I find that I am pulling the Robot out less and less and using just Thor's hammer for the bulk of my work.
However, I do admit - I still encounter the situations where I must Robot and wonder how the experience would compare if using the J-Mate.

My question is - Why the silence?
Positive or Negative.... The experiment and results (postive and or negative) would be very interesting to follow.

John,

A very reasonable question. I am one of the testers. I believe there is a great potential in the J-Mate. The testing has revealed several items that are awkward and the JAVAD team is continuing to invent and refine solutions. I think it will be a great tool; development is slow. There are so many new and changing things happening that I am not comfortable reporting publicly. I don't want to comment on something that the development team is in the process of changing. Once again, things are looking good and moving forward. It is a slow process.

It is very exciting being part of the development of this piece of equipment! I am testing all the time and getting the processes for utilizing the features more refined and I like the direction we are headed!

All different - what you create in the US does not necessarily fit in the EU, who participating from EU region?

I have a question regarding vertical accuracy when using the J-Mate, hopefully someone can educate me on this. When using the J-mate, I imagine the vertical accuracy will be improved from what it is when using our current Thriumph-LS (RTK Rover) and Thriumph-2(RTK base) system. During the J-Mate testing experience, what has been the Thriumph-LS(RTK and Optical Rover), J-Mate (Optical/(RTK?) Base), Thriumph-2(RTK Base) system's horizontal and vertical accuracy? Let's assume the base is set on a point with known horizontal and vertical state plane coordinates. Please let me know, thank you.

I like the idea of possibly using a j-mate at some point because I certainly use my Robot often enough. But I am greatly disappointed that my LS has so many J-mate related buttons that I have no option to remove with this latest update. Also as a side note is there anywhere that describes what all of the white buttons do? Or better yet even a whole new instruction book because there have been so many changes to the interface.

Are you using the PreRelease version of J-Field? It is not finalized and I would recommend sticking to the Release version.
