How to display Map in iCMTGIS or iGPSGIS

iCMTGIS for iPAD and iGPSGIS for iPhone can display the built-in Map for a valid current location.

If you open an existing job that contains one or more Features, those Features will provide a location reference for loading the Map.

However, when you create a new job, initially there will be nothing in Map View to give a clue as to where you are. You will need to first get a location reference before you can load the Map.

If your iOS device comes with GPS, tap on the GPS icon then select “GPS On” to turn on the GPS function. The GPS location marker will be displayed to indicate your current location.

If you don’t have GPS for your iOS device then you will need to connect to a Wi-Fi Network and turn on the Location Services under Settings on the iOS device. Then you will be able to get a location marker on the screen.

Now that the Map View is properly situated, tap the Main Menu icon at the top of the main screen in iCMTGIS or iGPSGIS then select Map.

Select the type of Map you wish to see, and the map will be displayed on the screen.

Please note that if you zoom in too much, the scale may get too large for the Map to be displayed in the Terrain mode. In that case, you will see a black screen.
