    I have not been able to install the Windows Mobile Device Manager on my new computer with Windows 10 Pro.

    Is this an issue with Windows 10 no longer supporting the Mobile Device Manager? If so, is there a work around?

      Try connecting your collector to your computer and then install mobile device center

    I noticed that this version will support the SP 60 and SP 80 GNSS receivers. Have any previous versions supported the SP 50 receiver? I currently have version 2016.12 but can not find a receiver that will work in survey styles.

      There are no other versions that support the Spectra brand except 2017.00

        Will the 2017 Access run a SP EPOCH 50?

          I have not had a chance to test it yet, this version just came out. I would assume if it ran the Epoch 50 they would have included it in their list. If I see or hear anything different I will let you know.

          Just heard back from trimble support, the Epoch 50 is not supported by Trimble Access.
