Gia - It is not possible to do this without a laptop connected to the receiver.

I am trying to record at 20Hz using the GB-1000 receiver. I have upgraded the firmware but discovered that neither with the updated firmware it is possible to "to log the data with rates faster than 1 Hz". I did use the PCCDU to follow the instructions given in the document "How to enable 20 Hz (and other high-rate) logging in Topcon GB-1000 Receivers" which helped me to log the data at 20 Hz using the PCCDU, but I wonder how can I do the same in the field, without a PC connected to the GB-100 receiver. Thanks!

Dear, I am a faculty at Dept. of geological Science, Chiang Mai University in Thailand. We are looking for new GPS system tools used in our geophysics program. Could you tell us the cost for Topcon GB1000 tools (The differential kunematic GPS set) including the software cost? We are wondering because we only have the budget for it around $20000 total and do not know this will match the the cost of the Topcon GB1000 tools or not. Regards, Dr. Niti Mankhemthong
