I really like the application, but do the base maps need to be uploaded in a proprietary format compatible only with CMT PC-GIS PRO?

iCMTGIS for iPAD and iGPSGIS for iPhone can display the built-in Map as background map. You can also import Shapefiles for use as reference for data collection.

You will need the PC-GIS program to prepare raster images for display on iCMTGIS or iGPSGIS. PC-GIS can load GeoTiffs, MRSID, .ECW and JPG2000 compressed files, as well as the CMT Basemaps for the USA and save them in the .PIM format used by iCMTGIS. PC-GIS will let you cut out just the piece of the raster image that covers your job area to load into iCMTGIS or iGPSGIS.

PC-GIS can run on Windows PC or a MAC in PC mode. It is a cost-effective but powerful GIS mapping program that is very easy to learn and use. You can even use it to edit Shapefiles.
