I have an old Topcon Hyper lite +. Has anyone had problems with updating the firmware for this unit?
Is it advisable to update? What if I leave it as is? Any help is appreciated!

Mine seemed to be ok for static  and OPUS but rtk had a 1999 date so do  not believe that would work in the field.  Tried to load the firmware into the base using Bluetooth and have it all locked up so can not use it.  May have to send it out.  Was successful with the rover using a serial cable.  Have not tried the H2 or the Hv yet but they both take the same firmware so should not be a problem.

Found this guy on you tube, says for legacy units you can clear the NVRAM, no need to update firmware.

A buddy of mine, whom is my boss at work, ran 2 PM2's Tuesday for a elevation certificate. He reset set the unites before running his session. Opened up Ashech Solutions and downloaded the data. He said that worked fine. But when he tried to bring the data up in  Ashech Solutions it wouldn't do it. So last night I ran 1 PM2 in my driveway. Downloaded the file and Almanac, Put the Almanac in the Ashech Solutions bin folder, and opened Ashech Solutions. There the site was. My file had the correct date. I'll have to set 2 PM2's up next time and post process the session to see if that works. As far as I know is I put the Almanac in the bin folder. I put the lat and lon in Google Earth and there it was in my driveway.

i'm using a pair of promark3 (l1) and even if in the field everything looks normal, i can't process them in GNSS Solutions. Any idea about converting in rinex files and to the process to that programm or to another??

Ashtech Solutions: you really should at least switch to the latest version of GNSS Solutions. It is not perfect, but the processing engine is much better.

GNSS Solutions: the RINEX convertor that is in GNSS Solutions won't work (defective). Manually convert the Ashtech files to RINEX using the 4.7.2 (newly released) RINEX converter, then import the RINEX into GNSS Solutions. You can download the new RINEX convertor from the Spectra SP80 web page (at the bottom.)

3.10.01 is the latest I know of.

I have my own control points set and processed from TxDot CORS stations that range across several counties that I use exclusively.

When they get covered over or knocked out, I move at least 50ft and set new ones.

Thank you Mark! I did that and it's working for single base solutions! But now my problem is "stop & go" techique. GNSS can't give me back adjusted fixed solutions for the points of interest that I measure! The accuracy that returns the programm is about 3-4m, although when I put them on an orthophoto seems to be ok! Any ideas?

Also, in new RINEX convertor from the Spectra SP80 i saw that when I use downloaded data from GNSS (unzip Promark3 data in GNSS Solutions) and try to convert them to rinex the information pad gives me as last observation time 1980 and that scares me!!!
