Note that it may be necessary to have a battery installed in the GIF 12.
Ensure that no other application is running that could use the parallel port (e.g. Print Manager).
Transferring data from the GIF12
Ensure that you have carried out the appropriate steps in the procedure for Processing a Field Survey up to the step for initiating the transfer of the data.
You should then have a dialog box on the screen prompting you to "Select the file to be downloaded"
The files available in the GRM10 (REC Module) are displayed in the combo box below the above message. Select the required file and press the OK button to initiate the transfer.
Transferring co-ordinate data to the GIF12
Use the Output/Data Recorder command to put the system in a ready state to send co-ordinates to the GIF12.
A dialog box should be displayed asking if the data recorder is ready to receive data. If the GIF12 is connected to the appropriate parallel port of the computer and the GRM10 is in the GIF 12, press the OK button.
A further dialog box is displayed asking you to "Select the file to upload to on the GIF12". The files available in the GRM10 (REC Module) are displayed in the combo box below the above message. Select the required file and press the OK button to initiate the transfer.
Note that if the "Overwrite existing data" check box is crossed, the data in the file selected will be overwritten by the transferred data. Otherwise the transferred data will be appended to the end of the file. If there is not enough room in the selected file, an error message is displayed and no data is transferred.
