You can lock Survey Styles to prevent them from being edited in the field. To do this:

  1. Use Microsoft ActiveSync technology to establish a connection between the controller and your office computer.
  2. Navigate to the [Mobile Device / My Windows Mobile-Based Device / Trimble Data / Systems Files] folder.
  3. Copy the required style file to your office computer.
  4. Select the file, right-click it and then select [Properties].
  5. From the [Properties / General] tab, select the [Read-only] check box.
  6. Tap OK.
  7. Copy the file back to the [Systems Files] folder on your controller.

Select Settings / Survey Styles and note the lock symbol to the left of the style name indicating that you cannot edit this style.

Note – A locked style will be updated to reflect any changes made during the auto-connect cycle when connecting to an instrument.
