Any Interest in a Leica 1200 GPS Pair (Need Firmware Update) for US $1000?
The boss's new year resolution is to clear out the back room.
We have a 2004, Leica 1200 (GPS only) system, that we haven't used in several years.
Last time we had it out we determined it need a firmware update, at least for RTK, which I believe is covered in an old post which I will look for shortly.
I did just fire them up and they were picking up sats and logging positions.
There is a Pacific Crest radio and GFU, but I think the radio is illegal in the States? (We are in Canada), and although there are gobs of cables and antenna, I can't guarantee everything is there. We wouldn't include the radio tripod or the big batteries (too difficult/expensive to ship)
To be honest we don't have the energy to update it/test it etc, we don't miss the bizarrely complicated Leica software - sooo, this would have to be sold As Is and is definately for someone with Leica knowledge and know how who is prepared to do the updates and figure out what to plug in where. But hopefully the asking price is reasonable, and if not, make an offer.
Without too much trouble you would have a 2 static system - with more head scratching, and probably a different radio set up, you could have a GPS RTK system.

Here is the post I mentioned:
Also - forgot to take a picture, but there is a tribrach, carrier, height hook and 4 bay battery charger - will take a picture and post it soon.
We are also planning to call Carlson tomorrow and then may have a Carlson Survey 2015 CD to sell as well, if they let us transfer the license.
Here is the additional equip - will remove the black marker writing on the carrier - one of the crew had a compulsion to write things like "Needs Adjusting - do not use" on stuff....the next day, I would adjust it... 😐
This is now on ebay for $195 starting bid
