I received the LA Prosurvey 1000 I purchased on eBay and have some operational questions. After replacing the defective battery with a 12V cigarette lighter plug, she came back to life. She definitely transmits (sorry for that phrase but as an Amateur Radio Operator, it's our lingo) as both my AL G8 as well as the V1 and the LI respond to her. The LI correctly identifies her as an LA or a PL2. The problem I am having is how to get the LA Prosurvey 1000 to indicate the range of an object and therefor examine how well the LI as well as my AL G8 are performing. Either I don't know how to use it properly, likely as I have no users manual or she is defective, unlikely as I stated, she does project a beam that set's off the V1, AL G8 as well as the LI. The HUD as well as the display keep flashing INCL for INCLINE and BEAR for BEARING but I can find no way out of that loop. When I point it at a reflective as well as other objects, I get only blank lines in the HUD showing no distance was measured despite the obvious fact that she is transmitting an IR beam. Calls to LA result in a please email us with your needs. Poor Customer Support for sure. I hate to ask for a Firmware MOD to get her acting like a PL2.
Any help with the operation of this LIDAR unit would be appreciated, a manual would be the cat's meow!
