Question about Leica Laser Locator Binocular

Alternative to Leica Laser Locator

I am interested in buying the Leica Laser Locator to be used with a DGPS. However it seems that the Laser Locator has been discontinued by Leica. What alternatives are available that can measure distances upto at least 2000 meters? Please tell me which DGPS model would it be compatible with?

Leica locator with DGPS capabilities? Leica still manufactor advanced military systems under the Swiss brand name of Vectronix which is part of the Leica group. Are you after a laser locator or a rangefinder such as the discontinued 7x42 Geovid. The Geovid is still available but no longer has the electronic compass. The original never did connect to a DGPS PC only the Leica Vectronix Vector could. None of these models will locate a laser only use a laser to calculate distance. Current Geovids range to 1200 meters and the Vectronix 21 will range to 12 Kilometers. Unless you are a certified government customer the Vectronix 21 you will not be able to purchase. Newcon have models that allegedy exceed 2000 meters that are made in Russia and depending on the model can be had for a few thousand dollars. The Leica Geovid 8, 10 or 15 power can be had for around 2.5 thousand to 3 thousand dollars and is an excellent robust unit. It will not connect to a PC for GPS sync though.

What does error 270 mean?


There is no error code 270 listed for a Leica Digital DISTO D3a 100M Laser Distance Meter.
Are you sure that's the code?
Or do you have a different make or model of laser distance meter?

What is DGPS?


DGPS stands for Differential Global Positioning System. DGPS achieves enhanced accuracy since the reference and user receivers both experience common errors that can be removed by the user. Position errors less than 10 meters are typically realized.

Frequently switches from dgps to gps fix .Why is this?


DGPS only works in areas where there is a DGPS beacon, and they're simply not that commonplace. Unlike orbiting GPS satellites, DGPS beacons are fixed land based devices.

When there's no DGPS beacon, the unit automatically reverts to the regular and slightly less accurate GPS.

I want to buy a printer for infrequent home use. I had anhp deskjet 3550 which isn't working anymore. I had found buying the ink for it very expensive. Could you reccommend a printer?


Infrequent use of inkjet printers causes the printhead to dry up and block which means purchasing new printhead to print.
If you are only interested in non-colour prints then the best alternative is a laser printer and these do not suffer from infrequent use. Small home laser printers are now very affordable. You can also purchase 2nd hand office laser printers, these are a good option and usually have built-in network print servers. The cost of a toner cartridge is a lot higher but they print 2500 or more pages depending upon the toner cartridge capacity BUT the cost per page is a lot lower than inkjet printers.

I can't say whether your specific camera / lens combination will work, but bear in mind all teleconverters result in some loss of image sharpness (especially 2X models.) You will also lose about 2 stops of light.

Sigh... There's just no real alternative for big, fast glass :-)

Using a DGPS on a 76csx


there is no possibility to use DGPS with 76csx... due to the fact that 76csx receivers use chipset the 'sirf star III' series and this chipsets don't allow use any RTCM data.
