A Data Probe installation

Data Probes are information and research devices that retrieve data in the surrounding area. By connecting these research structures to the FrontierNav, the party gets data about the surrounding area.

There are many advantages to different Data Probes. On a FN Site that is a resource vein, it is possible to install a Data Probe that automatically extracts currently used minerals, Miranium, and Precious Resources.

Data Probe icons checked on the Wii U Gamepad

The different types of Data Probes can be checked on the Wii U Gamepad.

The Treasure Boxes and Missions allow the party to obtain specialized Data Probes that can be installed on FrontierNav and provide different effects. These probes are of finite quantity, but are fully reusable and can be removed and placed on other sites. Installing probes incurs a construction fee however.
