I've been testing the BLK2GO extensively and I am really quite happy.

Demo data will be available once the unit is 100% ready for shipping (all the images shown here from the screen we had running at Intergeo were non-final, non-filtered and non-optimised from data we collected last week).

As we move towards a pre-xmas release, the unit will get better and better.

What I am most amazed at so far is the data clarity and the image mapping. Also, the speed of processing is impressive...

I am sure you will enjoy using the BLK2GO as much as I have over the past few weeks.

For those that are concerned about a USB-C port on the BLK2GO, here is the photo that I took at the InterGeo2019 Hexagon booth.

Since it is located in the battery compartment, I should have asked how it was going to work with the battery installed and taken a USB-C cable for them to show how it was going to work. With the USB-C cable plugged in, it is probably producing the power, not needing the battery.

Proprietary Leica Geosystems sensors (not sure about the IMU - but impressed with the levelness of the scans I have completed with the device).

Not long to wait now! :geek:
