What is the best HP calculator for surveying/civil engineering purposes? My HP-41CV with two survey packs died finally after many years.

Hi!, Boltfan26:

 

IMHO, for you and survey, today, is HP50G. This have calculator have many libraries created for download, and install, from ... http://www.hpcalc.org/search.php?query=survey&hp49=1 

 

The ultimate is the HP PRIME GRAPHING CALCULATOR and too is best, but didn't have many programs. 

Kind Regards !.
Have a nice day !.

You gave no details what is the problem with your HP41CV, so my advice may be not adequate.

My HP41C died many years ago. I just disassembled it and cleaned all the contacts inside with isoprophyl alcohol. It is working fine till today.

Hi!, andy11:

 

Is very good solutions, for user Boltfan26, what write over, your problem with HP-41CV. My HP41CV, complete with HPIL ThinkJet Printer, card reader, Diskette R/W, Memory Modules, Time Module, Fluid Petroleum Pak Module, Video Interface, etc ... is one of my preferred, but is obsolete.

Kind Regards !.
Have a nice day !.

Hi Make

My HP41c is obsolete maybe but still in good health.

It was used extensively, some 30 years ago (befor the era of PC!),  for about 5 years, some 3-6 hours daily!!!

Then landed in a cupboard on a retirement. But the keyboard is still in excellent condition, no single key make any problem.

There is no any comparison to today's stuff made for example by casio!. (I have a casio classpad 330 which stopped working after warranty period ended!, (well known problem with touch screen in this model)

In my opinion HP calculators are unbeaten.

 

Note: Neither I work for HP
