I am having some lag annoyances with the Trimble GeoXH 6000
running TerraSync 5.70 in the field lately. Satellite fixes are as expected,
but the unit is hanging up a lot when I am entering text attributes into a text
field while logging positions of existing features (updating position-less
I think the unit is getting bogged down trying to recall and
list all of the “predictive text” for each character I enter. I will often type
in a string of characters and not get any visual feedback for up to a minute,
during which time the screen is unresponsive and even the positions logged
counter hangs and then catches back up after all the characters have appeared
in the text field.
As this has gotten worse I wonder if there is a predictive
text cache that is getting full that I can empty periodically. Or even just
turn that feature off. Maybe a Windows Mobile (version 6.5 Professional)
Maybe there is a more macro memory dump I need to be doing
as all of the GUI responses seem to have slowed down, predictive text just
being the slowest.
