Automatic Traverse Closure

Here are some tips you can use with any data collector to tell TPC exactly how you closed a traverse. Using =[point] in the point description, TPC knows exactly what you did. So close out on =1 and turn an angle to =101 and TPC will know you closed on point 1 and turned an angle to point 101.
