These Release Notes contain important information about firmware version 1.35.
This firmware version 1.35 can be loaded onto all models of both TPS1200 and GPS1200 instruments. This firmware can be loaded onto any instrument regardless of any maintenance
contract – it is not necessary to have purchased a maintenance contract to use this firmware.
This new firmware is mainly released for performance improvement reasons – in particular to improve
the speed of handling a large number of jobs. The new firmware also includes a new EDM firmware for
the R300 instruments.
Also now available are new versions for all loadable applications – Stakeout, Reference Line, Determine Coordinate System, COGO, Sets of Angles, Traverse and RoadRunner. Please ensure to
also load and use the new applications. These applications now contain help texts and are now fully
supported for the languages listed at the end of these release notes.
Please do take your time to read these Release Notes. They contain information how to obtain and
load the firmware and loadable applications onto the instruments and a summary of all the latest individual firmware components.
