Q: How do I decide which software pac I need?
A: There are three
pacs available for surveying currently, and our recommendation would
depend on what kind of work you plan to do with the software. If
you are a student, or work in an office doing surveying calculations
for normal work, you can just use the
Pac. If you will also be doing field work, you would
probably want the Surveying
Pac, to take advantage of the stakeout, 3-D traversing,
leveling, and other programming used primarily for work in the field.
Pac contains additional programming that does certerline-related
alignment work for streets and roads as well as all of the same
programming that is in the other two pacs. You can compare the contents
in the comparison chart and read the
general descriptions included on each pac's individual pages to
help make a final decision, or call or e-mail
us if you still have a specific question.
Q: How many coordinates can I store?
A: D'Zign programming pacs are distributed
on a 32MB Secure Digital card that also provides the user with approximately
30MB of usable backup memory for coordinate files not currently
in use, additional programs from other sources. (shareware personal
information managers, phonebooks, etc. are available for download
Q: Since the D'Zign software comes on a removable card, can I share it with another user?
A: When the product is activated in the purchaser's calculator it is keyed to that specific calculator. Attempting to use it in another user's calculator could cause damage to the other user's calculator. See "Warning" in the Owner's Manual provided with the product.
Q: If I buy a smaller pac, can I upgrade it later?
A: D'Zign can offer a reduced price on a trade-in, but does not refund the portion of the original cost that was primarily for the manual, shipping, or packaging.
Q: What about updates to later versions?
A: D'Zign has always provided free updates on it's products, and will continue the practice with this calculator. A small re-programming charge will be required, and we pay the cost of shipping the program card back to you. Before submitting a card for updating, the user will need to remove and backup any coordinate files currently stored on the card, replacing them after the card is returned.
can I purchase D'Zign's software?
A: You may order directly from D'Zign,
or from any of our dealers (we do not discount the product when
selling directly and do not accept credit cards). Some of the dealers
may, from time to time discount during sales, not only on software
products, but on calculators and accessories. See "Dealers" list
