  • Here is the modification done to a Leica Disto A3 http://paperless.bheeb.ch/download.html

    The Bluetooth Serial Port Profile is the communication method.

  • RS232 on instruments is always a simple interface. No hardware or software handshaking. It is a slow, intermittent communication.

    The default should be 9600. I would be surprised if it defaults to 19200.

    The Leica chip should be consistent with the Leica Disto protocol. No sense in making multiple formats.

    If you do have the correct RX pin sending garbage should get an error code in response. It may be case sensitive. I doubt if they would take the effort to fuse it.

    “A” or “EXT” should set it to online mode. The lower case “a” powers it on. Until you get it into online mode the “?” is the only response you will get at power on.

No public wish lists :(
