Exporting to Trimble FMX Field Level

If you are surveying with the Trimble Field Level plug-in, then you can import the multiplane.txt file straight into OptiSurface and then exporting to a .gps file for the Trimble FMX Field Level should works seamlessly.  Be sure to have the latest firmware installed.

If you survey with other gps gear, then you need to modify the survey data to match the multiplane.txt format.  The critical piece is the Lat Long on the first line.

We are currently making this simpler in OSDv1.4 of the software due out in weeks.

Import to OptiSurface Designer and export to .gps file now works seamlessly with OSDv1.4 and higher.
