KB-02905: Using a Bluetooth Measuring Device with Room Planner
HELP! Trying to determine the best system to auto-input interior measurements into my newly purchased Chief X9 (IBS2018) software loaded onto my MacBook Pro or iPad. Looking around it appears the Leica 910 Pro system may work, but not seeing where others are using it with Apple products. I have a large 10,000+ house that I want to produce an as-built drawing in March2018. It has many areas with high ceilings and lofts with complex rooflines. I'd love to invest in the correct instrumentation to speed up data input into Chief Arch. X9. I'd also be willing to switch to Windows system if necessary. Also wondering if there are tripod mounted 3D auto-scanning systems that work with Chief. X9. Does Chief offer training with these systems that go beyond Room Planner?
Thanks, Jim Jones

Chief X9 upgradable to X10 once beta is done.
The high-end Leica Disto has a Bluetooth feature whereby you can import dimensions right into your CA drawing(s).
Has anyone here tried using it?
It seems like it would be fun, but accuracy is kind of important to me so I'd love to hear feedback on how well it works. I believe it means you have to tote your laptop around with you on measures but if it's a time saver then it just might be worth it.
I've been using a Disto for a few years now, it's not the right model (not BT enabled) but I would want to know if the process is buggy etc. before springing for the (much) more expensive Bluetooth model.
