Has anyone used the Triumph 2 as a network rover, along with the J Field app on a smartphone?  Pretty attractive price point.  I'm thinking about getting one.

Froze,

I have used the T2 as a static receiver with the IOS version of Javad Mobile Tools. Works great. I understand that you can run the T2 in RTK mode from JMT, but I have yet to try it. I use the LS when I need to do either network or my own RTK. 

I have used the T2 as a network rover with my Calrson RT3. Works pretty well.

JA, PLS SoCal

I can collapse it down to about 15" long for traveling through dense brush then abra cadabra, full length again.

I can see its usefulness in situations where you have to pack everything on your person and navigate through difficult terrain.  Most of my work is urban/suburban, and I only use RTK for control, so the larger rod/bipod is a better solution for me.

I learned a lesson on where not to set a base over the last two days.  I set up over a corner pin, previously located with an S6, because it is a solid location geometrically with good sky.  I was not getting the very quick fixes in brush like I have become accustomed to.  I was crushed.  Lo and behold, on stopping the base and downloading the base data, that also went very, very slowly.  I finally made the Mr. Obvious connection as I was breaking it down and casually read the High Voltage sign on the pedestal right behind the pin.  The GNSS units are very sensitive, being calibrated in an anechoic chamber, and I'm feel fairly sure that I shot my own foot with that setup.  There are new things for me to consider with this fancy technology.  Only one time have I ever gotten electrical interference with total station surveying.

Electrically noisy places, don't work well with GPS. Once upon a time, I set my base on a hill, near a cluster of radio towers.

I wound up moving my base to the valley floor, trying to escape all the radio racket.

Funny how things change. We used to look for clear line of sight. Now we look for clear channels, and open sky for the base.

Kinda funny. I occurs to me that the original poster was feeling great... New gear. Then someone (friendly) began throwing sticks "PLEASE tell me that you mean it will increase your billing."

Well, I think a Javad user should charge more than any other brand.

It's worth it.

I used trajectory today. Incredible. Users will know what it means...

This is the first complaint I've heard about Javad's batteries...and from Nate no less.  I only have to charge every other day or so but I guess that's what happens when you go green 😉

A Javad user should be able to earn more by getting more done. But the price of any individual survey stays the same. Your hourly rates may increase, but the bottom line bill is unaffected.

Naturally nothing in the preceding statement precludes the surveyor from deciding that his rates have been too low in the past. If you can get it, take it.

He he he:)

Charge more $. 

Batts. Last 2 days. I think 2 days should be industry standard. 🙂

Have fun!
