Data Collector Warranty Program

Spectra Precision would like to make you aware of some changes with the data collector warranty program. With the next update for Survey Pro, there will be a change to the update policy. The Survey Pro installation program will check for valid warranty status on the data collector in order to authorize the update.

A new data collector that has been purchased and is still under the one year factory warranty or under an extended warranty will be authorized for the update. Data collectors that are not currently under a warranty plan are able to purchase an extended warranty. There are Survey Pro software only warranties( part number EWSP) that will authorize the data collector for updates, and there are warranties that cover both the data collector hardware and Survey Pro software(part numbers EWRANGER-SP, EWNOMAD-SP, and EWRECON-SP) . The extended warranties are a good way to protect your investment in your equipment.

The Survey Pro installation program will use your internet connection to compare the data collector's serial number against a data base that contains the warranty status on all units. If the unit is under a valid warranty, the installation will proceed. If the unit is not covered under warranty, then a message will be displayed informing you of this and the installation will stop.

To receive Survey Pro minor improvement releases, identified by the version numbering system, you only need to be on the current version of the latest minor update. In other words, if you have version 4.8.x you are authorized for a version 4.8.5 improvement release automatically. For minor updates, 4.7 to 4.8 for example, it is now required that the data collector or Survey Pro software be on a current warranty plan.

The warranty plans are listed on Spectra Precision price lists. Data collector serial numbers are required in order to generate the proper registration codes for your unit and to log the warranty plan into the database.
