TDS Added Bluetooth Wireless Technology to Survey Pro on the Recon

Tripod Data Systems (TDS) added Bluetooth wireless technology to Survey Pro data collection software on the TDS Recon rugged handheld computer. Using a Socket Communications (Newark, Calif.) Compact Flash card with Bluetooth, the Recon can communicate to Bluetooth-enabled total stations, GPS receivers and other devices without cables. All Recons have the necessary hardware to support these Bluetooth capabilities, software will need to be updated to version 3.7.3. Installed in one of the Recon's two Compact Flash slots, the Bluetooth card is protected from dust, dirt and water by a fully sealed CF-Cap. (TDS, Corvallis, Ore.)
