We got some questions about the Marxact GNSS receiver and how the connection is with Apglos Survey Wizard. Maybe this is because there used to be a video on the YouTube channel of Marxact that showed how a connection was made between Apglos Survey Wizard and the Marxact GNSS receiver. But now it is not online anymore.
New in version 2.25 of Apglos Survey Wizard
So to help the users of the Marxact GNSS receiver we launched version 2.25 on the 14th may of 2020. The improvements in this version are:
- Better connection method with the Marxact GNSS receiver
- Better way of selection of the points to stake out.
Improved connection with the Marxact GNSS receiver
If you want to know more about the Marxact company you can check this page. Anyway it is a Dutch company and they build a GNSS receiver. They call it the Marxact UNI GR-1.
As you already might know we want Apglos Survey Wizard to work with any GNSS receiver. So it should also work with the Marxact GNSS receiver. And so it does. But we made the connection with this receiver better. Of course only considering the software part.
We don’t have any influence on the hardware of Marxact or the quality of their products. What we could do is to make the connection more solid. That helps you if you have a Marxact GNSS receiver and you want to use the ease-of-use of the land survey app Apglos Survey Wizard.
As mentioned before Marxact removed the video of the connection between the Marxact GNSS receiver and Apglos Survey Wizard from their YouTube channel.
But that is not a problem, because soon we will upload a complete video on how to connect the Marxact GNSS receiver with Apglos Survey Wizard. So please keep on checking our Youtube channel. Or even better subscribe on it and you will be notified when we launch a new video.
Selection of points to stake out improved
Of course if you have a Marxact GNSS receiver or any other GNSS receiver you also want to stake out.
And of course you can select the points or any other entity on the map. But you can also select the points in a dropdown list that is situated above the map. It is very easy. Just click on the dropdown list and then select the point you want to stake out.
After that the point will be selected. And Apglos Survey Wizard shows you right away all the information to stake out that point, like the direction in the horizontal plane, the distance to the point and the height difference with the point.
It is a great feature if you want to stake out a list of points quick.
We keep on improving like with the connection of the Marxact GNSS receiver
