As we have received similar questions from quite a few other iCMTGIS and iGPSGIS users, the answer bears repeating here.
iCMTGIS and iGPSGIS are two of several field data collection applications that can be used in conjunction with the CMT PC-GIS and PC-GPS desk-top programs. PC-GIS 09 will let you load the CMT Basemaps as well as raster images in various popular formats (such as GeoTiff, MRSID and ECW) and to convert them into .pim images for use by iGPSGIS or iCMTGIS. PC-GIS 09 also lets you easily perform GIS mapping tasks that are found in other much more spendy desk-top GIS mapping programs. In other words,
iCMTGIS + PCGIS 09 = GIS mapping system
iGPSGIS + PC-GIS 09 = GIS mapping system
