I need my zone map to display in color

Shapefiles don’t store information about how to render the shapes in different colors and fill patterns. Therefore, when you export your zone map in Shapefiles format then import it into Farming GPS GIS, Forester GPS GIS, iCMTGIS II or iGPSGIS II, the default solid green color will be used to represent all Area Features.
If you have PC-GIS, you can classify the grids based on a variable (Attribute) and obtain a color zone map. Then you can save the data in the .pmp job file format to open in Farming GPS GIS, Forester GPS GIS, iCMTGIS II or iGPSGIS II.
PC-GIS will also let you prepare a raster image file for use with iCMTGIS II or iGPSGIS II as a background map. Currently, Farming GPS GIS and Forester GPS GIS do not provide this capability but can use the built-in wi-fi-dependent Apple Maps as background.
