When you look at the big map (the M key) there is usually, not always, but usually a trail of sorts you can see.
If you follow it, it'll lead you to all the devices. And every once in a while the tricorder will lead you to them, but only sometimes.
They have always been that way. It's actually improved, for a long time the Tricorders never worked at all for the Klingons. It took a couple updates before that was fixed.
I guess I've just gotten used to having to search a long time for items on some of the ground maps.
Being Klingon has always been more of a challenge in STO.

This! It works for both KDF and Fed ground missions where you've got a number of objectives to complete (scanning, clicking, killing, etc.)

I've never seen my tricorder point me at a destructable object like the borg machines in those missions. I always chalked it up to their being NPCs or some weird object that turns into an NPC when you get to a certain range. It reminds me of the space missions that have you blowing up derelict ships; they are non-targetable objects until you get to about 6km and then they suddenly are targetable and you can kill them.

Non-ship/captain objects in this game are weird. And the tricorders should really work better.

Yep, this. Even if you can't see the trail on the minimap, you should be able to spot it just walking around... they tend to stand out. Just follow the trail. The absolute only problem seems to be that one of the Borg Device missions kinda tosses you off the trail at the start, but you should still be able to find it relatively easily. But if you see one device, then just stick to the very obvious trail it's on and go up and down it.

And if you can't spot the super obvious trail, well... that's kinda your problem. :p
