We use HG Companion every day. The ability to take pics and have them automatically dropped into the report template literally will save you at least half an hour depending on how many you were taking before.

You gotta build your auto comments to be able to master your report writing and having the report done at the completion of the inspection. This is the one draw back with using the HG companion, that is, you cannot add to the auto comment library while using the HG companion. Instead you must remember to create a new auto comment while using the full version of HG on the laptop while finishing the report or after you have downloaded from the cloud and onto the laptop.

Agreed. Not a huge inconvenience but I have wanted it several times. What I do is just flag the item which you can do with a long press on HG Companion. That reminds me that I need to make an adjustment or add a new canned comment.

tried the companion and it took me 3 times as long to do the job. Canon SLR, photos of defects/repair items only, pre-programmed template, load my SD card into the Toughbook in the van, generate the report in less than 20 mins, send to cloud and gone.
