Hi, how do you download data from the tsc3? We have TBC at the office but I have never done this before. Do you need the usb key to use the TBC when downloading survey data from the tsc3? Thank you.
You can use few different ways:
1) Connect TSC3 via USB cable (mini-USB) to your Computer (standard-USB) or2) Use Trimble AccessSync service (in case you are using Trimble Access field software) or
3) Use any USB Pen Drive
Ad 1) You need to have / install free "Windows Mobile Device Center" (formerly Microsoft ActiveSync). Then you can download data via Windows Explorer, Total Commander with WinCE plug-in or just simply open TBC (Trimble Business Center) and press Import button. It will open side panel on the right side of TBC screen (if not done automatically) and you can drag and drop your data to TBC directly (you have to create or open TBC project prior to drag and drop).
Ad 2) Trimble AccessSync is for free for any TSC3 with Trimble Access which is under valid standard or extended warranty. You need to have have account created at my.trimbleaccess.com and install AccessSync module to your TSC3 with Trimble Installation Manager. Then you can use this nice Cloud-Based Sync between your TSC3 and TBC (set same name/password in Options and use Open Remote file in TBC)
Ad 3) I would recommend to use Pen Drive up to 8 GB formatted in FAT32
