Press the GNSS button to connect or disconnect the GPS receiver (Receiver must be connected to do any surveying). This tab also contains all GPS settings, most of which should already be set up correctly. Use the main operations tab to open Setup.
Use the status tab to check current satellite information.
Step 1: After opening TerraSync from the main menu, type a logical name for the new file. Press Create when finished. Step 2: When you are ready to begin surveying, Select Trail from the feature menu and press Create. Step 3: Fill in the required trail information. Make sure that points are being logged as you move:
While logging the trail, Under the Options tab, select Nest. Select the appropriate feature from the list that appears (You may need to scroll down).
When the feature screen appears, the GPS will begin logging points. Mandatory feature attributes are underlined. When finished entering data, press Done. Once you return to the trail screen, you must press Resume to continue logging points on the trail. Once you return to the trail screen, you must press Resume to continue logging points on the trail. Trail logging will be paused when returning from nesting a feature.
The map screen shows the trail and features that have been surveyed, as well as your current location. The map is helpful to avoid making wrong turns and to check that the GPS is continually logging points. In order to nest more features, you will have to return to the Data tab.
When you reach the end of a trail, press Done to end logging. Ending the trail takes you back to the main screen, where you can begin another trail or close the file. Segment Line creates a break in the trail line without ending the trail. This allows the new segment to be renamed or updated.
Step 1: To open a file which has already been created, select Existing File from the drop down menu. Step 2: Select desired file from the file list. Step 3: Either use Update to update existing features, or Collect to collect new features. *Note: Files can be arranged by name or date.
File manager can be accessed at any time from the Data tab. Files can be searched by file type, or arranged in order by name or date. Use file manager to delete and rename files, and to move files between the GPS and a storage card.
Any file can be set as a background file. Background files show only trails, no features or other information is accessible. Use to turn background layer on or off. Use to select files to be used as the background layer.
