“If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.”

""Let me dispel with the suspense; it doesn’t appear that Henry Ford ever actually uttered this famous and polarizing phrase. We have no evidence that Ford ever said those words.""

Not the most direct method, but you can achieve this using Cyclone by buying a USB-Ethernet adapter and ethernet cable.

Meanwhile Recap Mobile, an app released in 2017, had direct iPad USB transfers until it was killed off...

I’d settle for cheaper horses ;-)

I always get my horses at other stables. Never at the Leica one and it's because reasons all mention above, lack of satisfying current clients instead of aiming for new ones and new useless gear.

Cheaper horses might just end up being donkeys ;)

Or faster (Wifi 6) in BLK360... I would gladly pay for an upgrade... as currently it scans faster than it transfers data to iPad (if HDR+med scan is used)

But Wifi 4 has a longer range, slower, but still good for transferring .blk scans. I know it takes longer times if HDR photos are taken.
The fact that Reg360 isn't able to import local Field360 database (transferred via USB) is very disappointing.

Since I hate Field360... I simply want never to see a BLK or any other scanner made again, without Removable Media.

I keep trying again and again with Field360 to like it. And every time i give Field360 another chance, I just wonder, why I don't listen to myself.
But using Field360, BLK360, RTC360 and Reg360 all since their respective first releases. Plus over a decade of Cyclone and SS2, C10 and P series use before BLK and R360 were released.
I simply can't get on the Field360 Band wagon. I wish a slow death.

But removable media is great. Leica got that one correct on RTC360. And I wish there was a way to hijack a Micro USB type C stick into the BLK360 so we could scan directly to a Stick. Even if Leica wanted custom make it, and charge me a G note for it, I'd be happy.

If I want Rego in the field, I'll have 2 operators, and they can trade media sticks every 15 or so scans, so that the Rego is being completed for real in the field like in the old SS2 days, and not just some app on a tablet.
