1.3-0 Release Notes (pdf)

This release has been formally accepted for general use, and it is recommended that all users install this version.  This update fixes critical issues in earlier versions caused by serial devices (such as met packs) and binex streams.  See the release notes for more details or email Freddy Blume with any questions.

Configuration files generated by previous firmware versions can be used with 1.3-0, but it is recommended that users generate new configuration files once this version has been installed that take advantage of the new features (or explicitly disabled). 

Trimble recommends that users not apply configuration files to firmware versions earlier than those used to generate them, although this has been tested with no ill effects observed.  Do so at your own risk.

UNAVCO members who have purchased NetRS receivers through Community Purchases are entitled to 5-year warranty codes from the date of purchase.  Users who require new codes to extend the warranty period should email Patty Chonis ( with the serial number(s).
