Welcome to the MicroSurvey FieldGenius2012 Service Pack 1 Downloads page.

No License Key Required if Upgrading from Version 6.x or higher

If you are upgrading from an older version of FieldGenius (not 6.0.0 or higher) then a new license key is required. If you have FieldGenius 6.0.0 (or higher) already installed and licensed, then a new license key is not required.

Remember we have an entirely new software licensing system. Please click here to go to our Licensing Instructions page and learn how to license your new version if you are not clear on how to do it.

FieldGenius2012 stores all instrument profiles in a reformatted version of the file: MSurvey.ini. Users upgrading from Version 4.2.0 or older must manually record all settings for Total Station and GPS receivers so you can re-enter them in the new version. Users upgrading from version 4.3.0 or newer only need to run the installer, all settings will be retained.

Release Notes (Please read)

Important Note: This service pack only addresses two issues (see below). If these issues do not apply to you then there is no compelling reason to install this service pack, and therefore dont bother. But if you do own a NavCom receiver or are using a device that uses the Windows Mobile 5 or PocketPC operating systems, then you should download and install this service pack.

    1. Our Windows Mobile 5/PocketPC build had a problem with the display driver that prevented points from being displayed on the map. This is fixed.
  1. We fixed a latency issue specific to NavCom GPS drivers and the local internet connection.
