Trimble R8-3 Radio Mode Issues
Currently have a set of Trimble R8 Model 3’s and having an issue with selecting a radio mode/protocol for each unit.
Current Firmware is 5.37. I can only select modes:
1. Trimtalk v1 @4800bps
2. Trimtalk v1 @8000bps
3. TT450s (HW) @4800bps
The units were converted to the 12.5khz band from the 25khz. Since then the option to select 9600bps has disappeared from the selection box. I have checked in both Trimble Access and WinFlash. Both units still work fine on either the 4800bps or 8000bps but annoying when I try to use other base stations that run 9600bps. Has anyone ever encountered this? I can also note that the option to change from 12.5 to 25 box is no longer selectable from my end (i imagine a dealer could change it but not that I will). I have had initial discussion with Trimble but they arent sure whats happening.
Any ideas would be welcomed.
What version of Access are you running? At some point 9600 was added back in; I'm pretty sure it's supported on Model 3s. We use 8000 because I know everyone has it regardless of firmware, etc. I could be wrong about the Model 3; I know it's on the R10.
