FAST Survey 4.0

Just a reminder, if you purchased FAST Survey version 3.x or a device with FAST Survey 3.x bundled after December 15, 2013; you are eligible for a no-cost upgrade to FAST Survey Version 4.0.

This offer expires on June 30, 2014 (13 days from now!)

The easiest way to get the no-cost upgrade is to:

1. Verify that your device was delivered after December 15, 2013
2. Snap two pictures of the data collector screen:
      a. Equip: About "About FAST Survey" showing the active modules
      b. then click on 'Change Registration' and take a picture of the current serial number
3. Send the pictures to your dealer, they can request the upgraded Version 4 serial number.
Requests will probably take two weeks to process.

The format of the Ashtech FTP server has been modified. Most software is now found under the 'Legacy' folder link:
