I have been waiting for a long time for Chief Architect to come out with their mobile version. When I read that I could connect a Leica Disto via bluetooth, I knew I could cut my project time. I carefully read the instructions on the page relating to which devices work with which operating systems and ordered a new Leica Disto. When it arrived, I could not connect to my Samsung Tab 3. Went out and bought a brand new Tab. Could not connect the Disto. Called tech support, "it doesn't work with Marshmallow, our developers are working on it." So, I returned the Tab and spent four days trying to find a new Tab that had Lollipop on it. Finally found it, received it and.....cannot connect the Disto. I can see it, but cannot click on it to pair. I now find that this is documented on the Forum. Why, oh why did the tech support guy tell me it would work? I am so frustrated with this, including the fact that I had to pay twice for the room planner app since I couldn't migrate it over to my new tab.
In my view, this is unacceptable for a large software firm. Chief Architect, light a fire under your develops or drop the page that claims that we can use a Disto with Room Planner. Irate!
Stumbled across this looking for a different article on the Chief Architect site and thought it could help people here.
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
