Upon buying the iPod I was not sure of how much I would like it, of course my friends enjoyed theirs so I had high expectations. Look, Display.

Fashion has always been the apple benchmarking, quality did not say ~ ~ ~ Of course, they did not use the headset. I bought this one in 08.2005 as my first mp3 player when I was a student. The usage is beyond my imagination.

Accessories & Options
Carlson Software can provide the following optional accessories, which include power supplies, cable and adapters, based on communication and power requirements.

Part List (All Units)

Here is a list of the available accessories for the Carlson Explorer, Explorer II and Explorer 600+:
Part List - Carlson Explorer Radio Components (Carlson Explorer 600+ Only)
The Carlson SS900 Radios work with the Carlson Explorer 600+ only, and they are not available for any other model.
The 6100.500 SS900 Rover Package includes the Explorer Pack Connect, SS900 Rover Radio, a 2500Mah battery, a Carlson Fuel Charger for one battery, a SS900 rover Package Carrying Case and Installation. The Explorer 600+ must be returned to Carlson Software for installation of the SS900 Rover Package.


The Carlson Explorer comes with a rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery pack that can provide up to twelve hours of operating time on a full charge, depending on power management and use. This battery is fully charged and installed in the unit when shipped. However, because some battery dissipation occurs between the time when the unit ships and when you start using it, you should charge the unit for approximately four hours before using it without the battery charger/power supply connected.

Charging the Unit

The nickel metal hydride battery technology used in the Carlson Explorer has exceptional charge life without the ''charge memory'' characteristic of conventional nickel cadmium batteries. Partially discharged batteries, or extended periods with the charger left connected, will not adversely affect battery life or performance. CAUTION! Because the internal battery charger senses several conditions, including temperature, you should charge the unit away from any known or potential heat sources. Units exposed to temperatures in excess of 110 degrees Fahrenheit during the charge cycle may experience incomplete charging and reduced operating time per charge. 1. Plug your power jack into the power jack receptacle on the bottom of your Carlson Explorer and Explorer II. If you have the Explorer 600+, plug the interface cable into the connector on the bottom of that unit.
2. Plug the battery charger/power supply into a power outlet. The Charge (CHG) LED should turn on, indicating that the batteries are charging (see table below).

Chapter 4. Operation

Power Supply 3. Once the battery is fully charged (approximately four hours), you can disconnect the AC power supply and run the Carlson Explorer exclusively on battery power.

Power On

To power on the Carlson Explorer: 4. Press and hold the ON/OFF switch for one second. 5. The unit should turn on and begin displaying the boot-up process. For example:
Where x.x.x is the version number 6. After approximately 20-25 seconds, the Windows desktop should appear.

Windows desktop However, because there is no outward indication (such as a ashing LED) that the Carlson Explorer is powered off or in Suspend mode, the Carlson Explorer may resume an active application if it is indeed in a suspended state. If the unit does not power up, or you cannot select any items from the desktop, refer to the ''Error! Reference source not found'' chapter for help.
Charge/Low Battery Indicator
When using the NiMH battery pack, the CHARGE/LOW BAT LED will indicate the current battery status as shown in the table below.
Charge\Low Battery Indicator Functions

Power/Suspend Switch

The On/Off switch is located above the keypad. Its function depends on the state of the Carlson Explorer at the time the switch is pressed, and on the length of time that the switch is depressed. Operations that the Power switch can initiate are Power On, Power Off and Suspend.

Power Off

To turn off the Carlson Explorer, press and hold the ON/Off switch for approximately eight seconds. This action will also terminate any running applications, and cease serial port operations.

Suspend Mode

Suspend mode allows you to suspend, but not terminate, active applications. In this mode, the display will turn off and the Carlson Explorer will cease serial port operations. For battery-powered units, use of the Suspend mode also conserves battery power. To place the unit in Suspend mode, press and release the On/Off switch. To take the Carlson Explorer out of Suspend mode, either touch the screen or press and release any key. The display will turn on, and the Carlson Explorer will resume running any suspended application, but you must restart any serial port operations.
If you attempt to resume immediately after suspending the Carlson Explorer or vice versa, the unit will automatically delay three seconds before resuming or suspending.

Power Management

Battery-powered units can utilize a rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery pack that has an average operating time between ten and twelve hours on a full charge with power management, and approximately eight hours without power management. As with all battery-powered devices, the operating time is completely dependent on the environment, device usage and the number and type of power-drawing peripherals attached. The battery discharge rate in a full ''Power Off'' state is only slightly higher than the self-discharge rate of the battery itself. CAUTION! Allowing the batteries to remain in a low or very low condition will cause the unit to enter Suspend mode. In either case, you should save your work and recharge the unit as soon as possible To lengthen the time between charges, you can perform the following actions: Use external PC Cards Some PC cards, as well as extended communication via the serial port, may require additional power to operate, and can drain the batteries at an accelerated rate. Limit the use of backlight Minimize backlight use when you are operating on battery power. You can adjust the backlight timeout level through the Display Settings in the Control Panel, or on some units by using the keypad.

Shorten Auto-suspend time The Carlson Explorer is automatically set to suspend operation to conserve battery power when you have not used the keyboard or the stylus after three minutes. You can increase the Auto-suspend time by changing the Power settings in the Control Panel.

Data Entry

45-Key Keypad
The Carlson Explorer and Carlson Explorer II units come with a 45-key keypad.

45-key Keypad

53-Key Keypad
The Carlson Explorer 600+ units come with a 53-key keypad.

53-key Keypad

Modier Keys
In order to provide the functionality of a full-sized keyboard with only 45 or 53 keys, the Carlson Explorer, Explorer II and Explorer 600+ keypads must depart from PC-style key assignment conventions by making use of multifunctional modier keys. Units congured with the standard 45-key or 53-key keypad typically utilize ve LED indicators (located above and to the left and right of the ON/OFF switch) to indicate the active state of keypad modier keys.
Modier Key Modier keys take effect when rst pressed, and typically remain in effect until you press another key, unless its another Modier key. Optionally, equipped units can use LEDs to indicate the selection of a Modier key. CTRL and ALT Keys: These operate in the same manner as on conventional PCs, except that by default they have a one-time locking action to facilitate one-handed operation. 1ST and SHIFT Key: Unlike conventional PC keyboards, on the Carlson Explorer and Carlson Explorer II, the 1ST and SHIFT keys enables you to access symbols, punctuation marks and navigation arrows rather than shift alphabetic keys to uppercase. The 1ST and SHIFT keys have a one-time locking action to facilitate one-handed
operation. On the Explorer keypads, the functions and characters accessed via the 1ST key appear in the upper left of a key, shaded in a color that matches the modier key. However, the SHIFT key on the Carlson Explorer 600+ toggles whether or not you are operating with upper or lower case lettering. 2ND Key: This key shifts the numeric keys to corresponding function keys (1 = F1, 2 = F2, etc.) that are found on conventional PC keyboards. It also shifts other keys for punctuation, non-printing characters (such as Delete and TAB), and PC key denitions (such as PageUp, PageDown, Home, Insert and Caps Lock). Like other modier keys, the 2nd key has a one-time locking action to facilitate one-handed operation. On the keypads of the three Explorer units mentioned in this section, the functions and characters accessed via the 2ND key appear at the bottom of a key, shaded in blue. Units with any of these keypads layouts also have keypad functions to adjust the contrast and backlight.

The table below lists the available Control Panel functions on the Carlson Explorer. Many of the items described in this table are covered in greater detail throughout this manual. To access the Control Panel, on your data collector screen tap Start > Setting > Control Panel, as shown in this gure.

Carlson Explorer White Screen Recovery If the steps below do not work you will need to call your Carlson Dealer to send this unit in for service or email us directly at with your Contact Details along with the HH serial number from the back of the unit and a detailed description of the problem. If you want to try and salvage a unit to recover Job Files from it before it is sent in for service you can try to boot from the Flash Card so you can turn on the unit and get into SurvCE and hookup for a File Transfer. Once the Job Files have been copied off the data collector you should run Equip tab / About SurvCE / Change Registration = write down the SurvCE Serial Number of the unit. You may still NEED to send this unit in for service even if the steps below allow you to get past the White Screen. For the steps below, you will need to buy 2 things from an Electronics or Computer store: 1) a Compact Flash card = the card size has to be between 32meg and 1gig {1,000meg = 1gig} 2) a Compact Flash Card Reader that you can plug into your Desktop or Laptop Computer *** PLEASE NOTE: If you use a CF card 2gig or higher the procedure below may not work Recovering an Explorer that is Locked up in the White Loader Screen:

On the Desktop Computer:

1) Download the file NK.GZ from the links in the Knowledge Base that matches the LDR number shown on the White Screen of the Data Collector. Note: This NK.GZ file will only work if you use the CORRECT Loader Version from the Knowledge Base Article which matches the LDR number on the screen of the collector 2) Copy the file NK.GZ onto the Compact Flash Card
On the Carlson Explorer Data Collector:
#1 --- Plug the Compact Flash Card with the nk.gz file loaded on it into the Explorer #2 --- Hold the On/Off button down for 12 seconds / let go of it / then turn the Explorer on like normal by pushing down and up on the On/Off button #3 --- the White Boot Loader screen should come up and say, Reading gzip file from USER socket on the second line of text #4 --- The Explorer should finish loading and go to the normal screen w/ the My Computer Icon and Recycle Bin {NOTE: If it continues to display errors at this point or doesnt load up the standard Desktop screen, we will have to send in the unit on an RMA # to 2 Technologies} #5 --- Now you can open SurvCE and register it at by clicking on the link for Registration
