If you are looking for a powerful and versatile software for land surveying, mapping, and construction, you might have heard of TopSurv. TopSurv is a software developed by Topcon, a leading company in the field of positioning and geospatial solutions.

However, before you can use TopSurv on your device, you need to have a valid key activation ID. A key activation ID is a unique code that enables you to access the full functionality of TopSurv. Without a key activation ID, you can only use TopSurv in demo mode, which has limited features and expires after 30 days.


In this article, we will explain what a key activation ID is, why you need it for TopSurv, how to get it, how to activate it, and how to troubleshoot common issues with it. By the end of this article, you will have a clear understanding of how to use TopSurv with your key activation ID.


How to get a key activation ID for TopSurv




There are three main ways to get a key activation ID for TopSurv:


Option 1: Purchase a license from an authorized dealer




The most common and recommended way to get a key activation ID for TopSurv is to purchase a license from an authorized dealer. A license is a legal agreement that grants you the right to use TopSurv on your device for a specified period of time. Depending on the type of license you purchase, you may also get access to updates, support, and additional modules.


To purchase a license from an authorized dealer, you need to contact them and provide them with some information about your device and your desired software configuration. The dealer will then generate a key activation ID for you and send it to you via email or other means. You will also receive an invoice and a license agreement that you need to sign and return to the dealer.


The price of a license may vary depending on the dealer, the region, the software version, and the modules you choose. You can find a list of authorized dealers on the Topcon website.


Option 2: Request a trial license from Topcon




If you are not sure whether TopSurv is suitable for your needs or if you want to test its features before purchasing a license, you can request a trial license from Topcon. A trial license is a temporary license that allows you to use TopSurv on your device for free for a limited time (usually 30 days).


To request a trial license from Topcon, you need to fill out an online form on the Topcon website. You will need to provide some information about yourself, your company, your device, and your desired software configuration. After submitting the form, you will receive an email from Topcon with your key activation ID and instructions on how to activate it.


A trial license is a great way to experience the benefits of TopSurv without committing to a purchase. However, keep in mind that a trial license is not renewable and that it may have some restrictions or limitations compared to a full license.


Option 3: Use a generic key activation ID for limited functionality




If you do not want to purchase or request a license for TopSurv but still want to use it on your device, you can use a generic key activation ID for limited functionality. A generic key activation ID is a code that allows you to use some basic features of TopSurv without activating it.


To use a generic key activation ID for limited functionality, you need to enter it when launching TopSurv on your device. The generic key activation ID for TopSurv is 0000-0000-0000-0000. After entering it, you will be able to use TopSurv in demo mode.


Demo mode has some limitations compared to full mode. For example, demo mode only supports one project at a time, does not allow data export or import, does not support network RTK corrections or NTRIP connections, does not support advanced modules such as road design or laser scanning, and expires after 30 days.


How to activate TopSurv with your key activation ID




Once you have obtained a valid key activation ID for TopSurv (either by purchasing or requesting a license), you need to activate it on your device. Activating your key activation ID will unlock the full functionality of TopSurv and allow you to use it without any restrictions or expiration.


To activate TopSurv with your key activation ID, follow these steps:


Step 1: Install TopSurv on your device




The first step is to install TopSurv on your device. You can download the latest version of TopSurv from the Topcon website. You will need to select your device model and operating system (Windows Mobile or Android) and then download the installation file.


After downloading the installation file, transfer it to your device using a USB cable or other means. Then run the installation file on your device and follow the instructions on the screen. You may need to restart your device after completing the installation.


Step 2: Launch TopSurv and enter your key activation ID




The next step is to launch TopSurv on your device and enter your key activation ID. To do this, tap on the TopSurv icon on your device's home screen or menu. You will see a splash screen with the Topcon logo followed by an activation screen.


On the activation screen, tap on the "Enter Key" button and then enter your key activation ID using the keyboard or keypad. Make sure that you enter the code exactly as it was provided by the dealer or by Topcon (including dashes). Then tap on the "OK" button.


Step 3: Verify your activation status and enjoy TopSurv features




The final step is to verify your activation status and enjoy TopSurv features. After entering your key activation ID correctly, you will see a confirmation message that says "Activation Successful". You will also see some information about your license type (full or trial), expiration date (if applicable), software version (e.g., 8.5), and modules (e.g., GNSS+TS).


Tap on the "OK" button to close the confirmation message and start using TopSurv. You will see the main screen of TopSurv with various icons and menus that allow you to access different functions and settings. You can now use all the features of TopSurv according to your license and configuration. You can also check your activation status at any time by tapping on the "About" icon on the main screen.


How to troubleshoot common issues with TopSurv key activation ID




Sometimes, you may encounter some issues with your key activation ID for TopSurv, such as invalidity, expiration, or incompatibility. In this section, we will explain how to troubleshoot some common issues with your key activation ID and how to resolve them.


Issue 1: Invalid or expired key activation ID




One of the possible issues with your key activation ID for TopSurv is that it may be invalid or expired. This means that the code you entered is not recognized by TopSurv or that it has reached its end date and is no longer valid.


If you encounter this issue, you will see an error message that says "Invalid Key" or "Key Expired" when you try to activate TopSurv with your key activation ID. You will not be able to use TopSurv in full mode and you will be redirected to the activation screen.


To resolve this issue, you need to check the following:



  • Make sure that you entered your key activation ID correctly. Check for any typos, missing characters, or extra spaces. Try to enter the code again and see if it works.



  • Make sure that your key activation ID is compatible with your device and software version. Check the information provided by the dealer or by Topcon and compare it with your device model and operating system (Windows Mobile or Android) and your software version (e.g., 8.5). If there is a mismatch, contact the dealer or Topcon and request a new key activation ID that matches your device and software.



  • Make sure that your key activation ID is still valid. Check the expiration date of your license (if applicable) and see if it has passed. If your license has expired, contact the dealer or Topcon and renew your license or request a new key activation ID.



Issue 2: Key activation ID already in use by another device




Another possible issue with your key activation ID for TopSurv is that it may be already in use by another device. This means that the code you entered has been activated on a different device and cannot be used on more than one device at a time.


If you encounter this issue, you will see an error message that says "Key Already In Use" when you try to activate TopSurv with your key activation ID. You will not be able to use TopSurv in full mode and you will be redirected to the activation screen.


To resolve this issue, you need to check the following:



  • Make sure that you are using the correct key activation ID for your device. Check the information provided by the dealer or by Topcon and see if they gave you more than one key activation ID for different devices. If so, use the appropriate code for your device and see if it works.



  • Make sure that you are not using the same key activation ID on more than one device simultaneously. Check if you have activated TopSurv on another device with the same code and deactivate it before activating it on your current device. To deactivate TopSurv on a device, tap on the "About" icon on the main screen and then tap on the "Deactivate" button.



  • Make sure that you have not transferred your key activation ID to another device without deactivating it first. If you have changed or replaced your device and want to use TopSurv on it, you need to deactivate TopSurv on your old device first and then activate it on your new device with the same code.



Issue 3: Key activation ID not compatible with your device or software version




The last possible issue with your key activation ID for TopSurv is that it may not be compatible with your device or software version. This means that the code you entered is designed for a different device model or operating system (Windows Mobile or Android) or a different software version (e.g., 8.5) than yours.


If you encounter this issue, you will see an error message that says "Key Not Compatible" when you try to activate TopSurv with your key activation ID. You will not be able to use TopSurv in full mode and you will be redirected to the activation screen.


To resolve this issue, you need to check the following:



  • Make sure that your device model and operating system are supported by TopSurv. Check the Topcon website for a list of compatible devices and operating systems for each software version of TopSurv.



  • Make sure that your software version is up to date. Check the Topcon website for the latest version of TopSurv and download it if necessary. You may need to uninstall and reinstall TopSurv on your device after updating it.



  • Make sure that your key activation ID is compatible with your device model, operating system, and software version. Check the information provided by the dealer or by Topcon and see if they gave you a specific code for your configuration. If not, contact them and request a new key activation ID that matches your configuration.
