New hardware support

Trimble TDC650 handheld GNSS receiver

Trimble Access version 2022.01 supports the new Trimble TDC650 handheld GNSS receiver.

The TDC650 can be used as a handheld, with a monopole using the integrated antenna, or mounted on a pole and used with an external antenna.

The TDC650 can only be used with Trimble Access subscriptions, and is designed for GNSS‑only surveying using the integrated GNSS receiver. It does not support connections to external GNSS receivers or total stations, and Trimble Access apps that require conventional surveys cannot be used on the TDC650. These include Trimble Access Tunnels, Mines, and Monitoring.

Resolved issues

  • Sign in using Edge browser: We have fixed an issue where a server connection error message appeared if you signed in to Trimble Access using the Microsoft Edge browser and then attempted to sign into Trimble Access using a different Trimble ID when the Edge browser was still open.
  • Job files created from JXL: We have fixed an issue where if you created a job from a JXL file, some settings from the JXL file were not copied into the job. These settings were South Azimuth, Grid coordinates orientation (North-East, South-West, etc.), Distance type (Grid, Ground, or Ellipsoid), and Magnetic declination value.
  • Available USB drive: We have fixed an issue where the software did not always show that a USB drive was available after you had inserted the USB drive into a USB port on a Windows controller or PC.
  • DTM delta display in the map: When using a LandXML or 12da file that does not include at least one alignment, deltas are now shown on the map when staking a DTM from the file.
  • Photo attributes: We have fixed an issue where the Photo field displayed the previously used photo file name. The field is now cleared ready for a new name.

  • Stakeout with null target height: We have fixed an issue where the stakeout angle deltas were not populated if the target height was not set (had a null value).
  • RTX Quickstart incorrect coordinates: We have fixed an issue where the incorrect coordinate was being used in the QuickStart function in RTX surveys. The magnitude of the error was equivalent to the amount of tectonic plate motion at the location over a 5 year period. This error resulted in RTX converging in the incorrect location, followed by a small de-convergence then convergence to the correct location.
  • WFS: We have fixed an issue to do with handling of GML position data in a WFS.
  • Time intervals in Danish: We have fixed an issue where the software would not accept any value entered in a time interval field if the value included hours, not just minutes.
  • Performance issues: We have improved the performance of the software. In particular:

    • When switching between the video view and the map.

    • When performing a resection.

    • When performing a site calibration.

    • When staking out roads, alignments, or polylines using GNSS, the eBubble could become unresponsive and the stakeout deltas could become slow to update.

  • Application errors: We have fixed several issues that caused occasional application errors when using or closing the software. In particular:

    • On running the software after installing Trimble Access version 2022.00, on some Windows controllers an error message reported the DX9 driver was not supported.

    • When setting a DXF file to visible or selectable in the map Layer manager where the file included a spline for a hatching boundary.

    • When exporting to DXF without first opening the job containing the points you are exporting.

    • When creating a surface from scan points selected in the map when the map is orbited (not in plan view).
