Topcon High Accuracy Receiver Collection

Our Engineering Department has a Topcon HiPer SR receiver with a FC-5000 data collector running Windows 10.


They are trying to use Collector with this receiver but it doesn't seem to want to connect when using their data collector.

When inside Collector, if they try to switch the receiver to their HiPer SR receiver, the connection will always fail.


If they switch to pairing their receiver with a phone or tablet (Android was our test), the receiver does seem to be able to connect inside Collector, but it doesn't appear that the receiver is actually communicating with Collector because the accuracy icon at the bottom of Collector remains red and shows no estimated accuracy.


Just wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions to try?...are we missing a step somewhere?...perhaps enabling mock locations on the tablet?  Is it the type of receiver that is the limitation?  I thought I read that with the latest release of Collector, as long as the device output a NMEA string, Collector could consume it, or perhaps that was only for the GPS metadata?



Thanks in advance!
