I have recently dusted off an old Pathfinder Pro XR system, and tried to collect data. I was communicating with the receiver, changing options etc via a TSC1 and it appeared to be collecting data. I can see the data file from the test in the menu.
However, I cannot get the TSC1 to connect to a computer, via a serial to USB cable, to transfer the files to see if the system is working, and if the data is reliable.
Does anybody have any advice on how to get this unit to connect to a computer? It is old, and running Trimble Asset Surveyor 5.20, do I need to upgrade, if so to what and is it provided (free) by Trimble or any user group? One option I am going to try is to use a PC card adapter and put in a CF memory card and save the data to this. Has anybody tried this method?
Any help is appreciated
